“I’m in Los Angeles, in my bed, right now,” Bradley Cooper said early this morning, shortly after he was nominated for a bunch of Golden Globe awards, as a star and a producer of “Silver Linings Playbook.” Across the country, we were similarly comfy. “Life’s strange, isn’t it?” said Mr. Cooper, audibly jolly. “We could actually take photographs and send them to one another. We could actually FaceTime – there’s no end to the level of communication that we could have right now.”

Don’t tempt us. Let’s get to the matter of the film, a relatively low-budget feature that has been treated by its distributor, the Weinstein Company, as an indie.

“We did a small release and decided to let the movie sell itself,” Mr. Cooper said, “which was what we thought would be the best marketing tool.” It’s worked: the film has kept mostly steady at the box office since it opened in November. “It’s a word-of-mouth film,” he said. “Luckily for us the word of mouth has been across-the-board wonderful.” (It’s made nearly $14.5 million domestically so far, and another $8.3 million internationally; the budget is estimated at $21 million, according to Boxofficemojo.com.)

The film also has its share of quotable moments, thanks to a script by David O. Russell (also nominated, though Mr. Russell was overlooked as director). Mr. Cooper has not yet become a catchphrase magnet to the public, but in his own circle, it’s a different story.

“Me and the guys that are in the movie, we quote the movie to each other,” he said. “I mean, way too much. Dash and Shea and John and Pauly Herman, we all hang out a lot.” (That would be his cast mates Dash Mihok, Shea Whighan, John Ortiz and Paul Herman.)

“It’s very sad when you’re quoting a movie that you’re in,” Mr. Cooper said, laughing, and adding by way of explanation, “I was in the editing room for five months, so I saw the movie 8,000 times.”

Since “Silver Linings Playbook” is nominated as best comedy/musical, and since it hinges on a big dance number, if the Globes telecast producers asked Mr. Cooper and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence to reprise their pas de deux, would he be game?

“That would be hilarious for us,” Mr. Cooper said, “and it might be really boring for everyone else. It’s one thing to shoot it, it’s another thing to watch it all in its wide glory.”

He was quick to note that he and Ms. Lawrence did all their own moves, though. “There was never even a discussion about dance doubles,” he said.

He didn’t quite know what clip he’d like shown during the telecast – “the movie has so many different tones,” he said – but he did recall what clip was used when “There Will Be Blood,” with Daniel Day-Lewis, was nominated. “It was when he was getting baptized and screaming,” he said.

“I hope that Daniel Day-Lewis” —a best actor nominee again this year for “Lincoln” — “shows up for SAGs and Golden Globes,” Mr. Cooper said, “because I just want be around him.”

“And Bill Murray!” he added. (Mr. Murray is a nominee for “Hyde Park on Hudson.”) “I got lucky with the right year, I’ll tell you that. That’s all I care about – I just want to be in the room with all these people, that’s the coolest part about the whole thing, is to get to watch them.”

It took almost no prodding, dear reader, to get Mr. Cooper to deliver a pretty good impression of Mr. Day-Lewis, screaming about his milkshake.

“I leaned up in bed and did his physical action,” Mr. Cooper said. “He’s the best.”
