Best Actor: Bradley Cooper in 'Silver Linings Playbook'

Why He Deserves the Oscar: "Although I could only judge that good-looking S.O.B. on his past performances, it took me only moments of viewing the film before realizing he reached deep inside himself to transform into the character portrayed. If that wasn't enough, the character's bizarre behavior would have been so hard to believe if he had not been so convincing a performer. He's come a long way since the 'A Team'. Another personal favorite!"
