The 27-year-old earned 'Best Supporting Actor' nods from both the Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globes for his role in the baseball film.
Talking to People, Hill confessed that he would never have expected such recognition and tries hard not to get caught up in the flurry that surrounds it
"I have been trying not to get wrapped up in all of this, in everything. Any expectation of getting a SAG nomination or an Oscar nomination are sort of absurd expectations to put on yourself. So the fact that I actually got this nomination was so overwhelmingly moving and thrilling and surreal. I am really just kind of shocked," Hill explained.
"The phone calls and emails I have gotten today are unlike any I have ever experienced. I feel like I got married or had a kid or something. I have never had anything like this happen to me before. My parents were actually crying."
Hill recently insisted that he has zero interest in 'exploiting' his fame and wants to concentrate on acting and directing.
