Bradley himself was a lot more subdued when he heard his own name mentioned as a nominee, in part because he was so excited that his Silver Linings director had been nominated.
"When David O. [Russell] got nominated [for Best Director]," Bradley says, "I got emotional because he put his whole heart into this movie and every frame, and the DGA didn't recognize him, so... I was so happy, and he was the first name they said."
"So, I was reeling from that, and by the time my name came around... I didn't make any reaction!"
