HOLLYWOOD—The race toward the 85th Academy Awards heated up today as Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper racked up an astonishing one Oscar nominations. “Lincoln and Life Of Pi both had a great day, for sure, but I think the real news story here was Bradley Cooper, who walked away with a massive one nominations,” said E! News correspondent Rachel Whitaker, adding that while the 38-year-old actor had been expected to get somewhere around zero nominations, most were stunned to see the star tally a stunning grand total of one. “This huge haul absolutely demolishes Cooper’s previous personal best of no nominations in 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004.” Cooper’s big morning comes on the heels of the actor announcing he would be starring in the upcoming half-film, The Hangover Part III.
