Brad Pitt Pitches Oscar Race Idea to Jon Stewart: "Last Man Standing Takes the Trophy"
Promotional work for Moneyball has gone into overdrive now that stars Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill have both been nominated for Academy Awards. So Brad stopped by The Daily Show With Jon Stewart last night to further discuss his nomination and plan to win the Oscar race!
Many Oscar-nominated actors are starting to make the media rounds this week to promote their films in hopes of pulling out a win. And Brad agrees with Jon that it resembles a political campaign.
"Why don't Oscar movies... go negative on other movies?" Jon Stewart asks on The Daily Show. "Why not like, 'The Artist, go f*** yourself?' "
"I thought about it. I thought about it," Brad admits. "[George] Clooney took Iowa and New Hampshire, Jean [Dujardin] took South Carolina, Florida will probably go to [Gary] Oldman, and I'm going to be hanging out with Ron Paul, so I've got to get in there and mix it up a bit, I think."
But Brad has a better idea on how to decide who wins the Oscar: "I think we should just put a trophy on the table...we should all just put our hands on it and see who can hold it the longest."
"That is the most awesome idea I have ever heard," Jon says.
"The last man standing takes the trophy," Brad adds. "Hands on the Oscar."
We'd love to see that!
