Bradley Cooper says his family was ‘obsessed’ with awards shows when he was growing up.

The star has always had an interest in the movie industry, as his parents were fascinated with glitzy Hollywood ceremonies. Bradley has recalled waking up early as a child to see who had been nominated for the biggest prizes in the movie industry.

‘I grew up in a family that was obsessed with awards. Back then there were really only the Globes and the Oscars, now there is an awards thing every week in the United States,’ he told UK TV show Daybreak. ‘But yeah, I love all the pageantry of it. We used to get up early to watch the announcements, that is how obsessed we were.’

The 37-year-old has garnered critical acclaim for his performance in Silver Linings Playbook. As well as receiving a best actor nomination from the Critics’ Choice Awards, he is also in the running for prizes at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Bradley is thrilled his latest big screen outing has been so well-received.

‘It is pretty exciting that people seem to love the movie,’ he smiled. ‘Because it’s a word of mouth film so the more attention these awards shows give it then the more people will hopefully go see it.’

In Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley’s character Pat moves back in with his parents after spending time in a mental institution. Robert De Niro plays Pat’s father and Bradley enjoyed working with the Hollywood legend as he has always been a huge fan of his work.

‘Oddly enough it was Robert De Niro who was the bonding element between me and my father,’ he revealed. ‘This movie takes place in the town where I grew up in actually, so it’s very close to home.’
