Bradley Cooper received the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday. He’s nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award on Thursday. But, more prestigiously and importantly, that morning he could very well be nominated for his first Best Actor Oscar.

I guess he does have a point...right?

Here’s Coop in NYC today looking good in a nice suit under a nice wool coat wearing a cute striped hat.
