Golden Globe nomination feels surreal: Cooper
London: 'Silver Linings Playbook' Star Bradley Cooper has described his Golden Globe nomination as "surreal".
The 37-year-old is up for Best Actor in the Musical or Comedy category for his role in 'Silver Linings Playbook' and he says he couldn't believe it when his name was read out, especially because it's not a big budget film.
"It's a small film and it's a word-of-mouth movie. The fact that it's getting this kind of attention [means] hopefully more people will go see it," Contactmusic quoted Cooper as saying.
"We loved doing it. We care so much about the film and it's amazing to be recognised. And then on a personal level, it's just surreal... I grew up as the nerd who would wake up to watch the (Golden Globe) announcements. To hear (presenter and 'Hangover' co-star) Ed Helms say 'Silver Linings Playbook' was just incredible," she added.
Other actors who are nominated in the same category are 'Bernie' star Jack Black, Hugh Jackman of 'Les Miserables', Ewan McGregor for 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' and Bill Murray from 'Hyde Park on Hudson'.
The 70th annual Golden Globes will take place in Los Angeles on January 13.
