Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington....AND Bradley Cooper. All nominated for Best Actor in a leading role in the Oscars this year.

Bradley's been nominated for his role in "Silver Linings Playbook". Bradley plays Pat Solitarno - a man with bi polar disorder, who tries to rebuild his broken marriage after being released from psychiatric care. Quite a gear change for Bradley, also stars in "The Hangover" series.
