"I get up crazy early anyway, and I told myself, 'OK, I'll take my dog to the beach, and just see what happens. Whatever goes down.’ What I forgot is that it's pitch-black at 5 am! So I watched with my mom and my dog. These things are once in a lifetime. To see Jacki [Weaver], Jennifer [Lawrence], Robert [De Niro] all recognized…and thank God, David [O. Russell], too. It's so exciting, it couldn't have gone better." --Bradley Cooper, on being nominated for Best Actor for "Silver Linings Playbook"
