Bradley Cooper's Very Good Day

Earlier I blogged about Bradley Cooper's current release The Words which I saw yesterday. The film has been received poorly by critics and filmgoers alike. But if Cooper was feeling a bit down about his Rotten Tomato score, he has no need to. Today, direct from Toronto, where The Place Beyond the Pines, the film where Cooper costars along with lovebirds Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, was quickly snapped up by Focus, we learn that success strikes again.

The Silver Linings Playbook, which also stars Jennifer Lawrence and Robert DeNiro,  has won the Peoples Choice Award. Winning is kind of a big deal and should cheer Cooper up.
Its a big deal because in the past other films earning the same nod, Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech, American Beauty, went on to take the top prize at the Oscars. Written and directed by David O. Russell, (I Heart Huckabee, The Fighter, Three Kings) the film is currently set for release on November 21, just in time for Thanksgiving break. You can read My Take on the book by Matthew Quick here and a little chatter about the book cover vs the movie poster here and still more about Cooper's big year here.
