    Even Jonah Hill didn't see his Oscar nomination coming—but that doesn't make the compliments any less sweet. 

    A few famous faces took to Twitter today to congratulate the 30-year-old star, who is now a two-time Academy Award nominee after he received a Best Supporting Actor nod on Thursday, Jan. 16 for his role in the Martin Scorsese-directed film The Wolf of Wall Street.

    "Congrats Jonah," Hill's This Is The End costar James Franco captioned an Instagram shot of the pair from Franco's Comedy Central Roast, sharing his enthusiasm for his pal via social media.

    But the Spring Breakers star wasn't the only one to express his excitement for Hill, who was also nominated for an Oscar for 2011's Moneyball, in which he starred opposite Brad Pitt.

    The actor's current costar Channing Tatum, with whom he is currently filming the comedy 22 Jump Street, the sequel to the duo's hit 21 Jump Street, also took to Twitter to give a shout-out to his good buddy.

    "Want to say congrats to @JonahHill and @McConaughey on their well-deserved Oscars nominations!" the former Sexiest Man Alive tweeted.

    And of course, Jonah's Wolf of Wall Street costar Leonardo DiCaprio, who received his own Best Actor nod for the film, also applauded Hill on his own social media page.

    "Congrats to my fellow nominees, @JonahHill, Marty, Terry Winter and #WolfofWallSteet family for the #Oscar noms," he wrote.

    As for the Superbad star's reaction to the exciting news?

    "I am in complete and total shock," he said in a statement. "I honestly was not expecting this, on a level you can't even imagine. Again, I'm clearly in shock. I didn't have a plan for celebrating today because I truly did not expect any of this! But I am going to the Critics' Choice Awards and will be great to see everyone from the film there tonight. Truly, this is shocking."

    Hill will vie for the highly-coveted gold statue against fellow nominees Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave) and Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) when the 86th annual Oscars air live from the Dolby Theatre on Sunday, March 2.

    Congrats on the exciting surprise, Jonah!
