Bradley Cooper has starred in the A-Team and The Hangover and now he is hoping that his latest film will make him an Oscar winner.
He has been nominated for the film Silver Linings Playbook in which he plays a man with bipolar disorder - a role that he says pushed him well out of his comfort zone.
Cooper spoke to BBC Breakfast about the Oscars and who he will take to the ceremony.
