Jared Leto And The Echelon React To Oscar Nomination: It’s Time For Pancakes

Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman was nominated for an Academy Award for 'Dallas Buyers Club.' Here's what he plans to do next.

If you liked Jared Leto’s 2014 Golden Globes acceptance speech (in which he referenced his “tiny little Brazilian bubble butt” and waxing his entire body), brace yourself: it could happen again at the Oscars.

The Thirty Second to Mars frontman was announced as a nominee for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Rayon in “Dallas Buyers Club” on Thursday (January 16).

Leto was surprised by the Oscar nom, reacting in a statement:

“I am absolutely blown away by this incredible nomination. I never in my life thought I would have the opportunity to even write these words. Thank you so much to all my fellow AMPAS acting branch members for this honor. Today you not only honor me but also all those around the world living with AIDS and all those we have lost to this disease. Thank you for recognizing them and recognizing their struggle through ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ This was a fascinating story told by a group of incredibly passionate and committed filmmakers who wanted to create something special and shine a light on a unique and important story. I’m proud to be a part of this celebration and so very grateful to you all. A huge congratulations to Matthew McConaughey, Robbie Brenner, Rachel Winter, Craig Borten, Melisa Wallack, Jean-Marc Vallée, Martin Pensa, Adruitha Lee, and Robin Mathews.”

Leto has been scooping up accolades for his work in the film, including nominations and wins from several critics’ associations, as well as a Screen Actors Guild nomination and an Independent Spirit Award nod.

Leto’s co-star, Matthew McConaughey, was also nominated. His honor is in the Best Actor category.

Leto took to his website to sound off further with a short post.

“I thought I didn’t get the nomination because I woke up and [mistakenly] thought it was getting light outside,” he wrote. “But then I got a knock on the door from Emma Ludbrook, who produced Artifact with me. It feels absolutely amazing, and I’m incredibly honored to be part of this insanity. It’s an absolute dream and I’m so proud to be part of a $4 million film about people fighting for their lives. Every scene, every day was incredibly challenging.”

And what does an Oscar nominee/rock star do to celebrate?

“I’m going back to bed and then wake up and make vegan pancakes,” Leto wrote.

On Twitter, he called the day “absolutely amazing.”

It goes without saying that 30 Seconds to Mars fans, the Echelon, went wild for Leto’s nomination on Twitter.

The 86th Academy Awards will air Sunday, March 2. Keep an eye on MTV News for updates on all things Oscars.
