Nothing but rave reviews have come out of “Moneyball” and for a sports film to be considered for the Oscars is quite an achievement. Brad Pitt is no stranger to the Academy Awards, but Jonah Hill takes his first step out of the dirty comedy realm and earns his first consideration for an Oscar nomination, and what an achievement it will be if he makes it to the big night. Aaron Sorkin won an Oscar for his screenplay for “The Social Network” last year and could easily see himself nominated again this year. “Moneyball” will be a huge contender this year and will likely be “The Fighter” of 2011.
