One of the Oscar nominees this year for Best Actor, Bradley Cooper is one rare breed of actors who would eventually land up with an Oscar. The star who is nominated this year for his role as the infamous U.S Navy Seal, Chris Kyle in American Sniper, is a dark horse running for the highest honor. Though he is behind the frontrunners Michael Keaton (Birdman) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) for the glory, here are some reasons why the Hangover series star would win an Oscar eventually. #1 Victory favors the brave Bradley Cooper is one actor who has consistently changed himself and evolved as an actor. He now has been nominated three years in a row, an achievement in itself. His roles in the three movies that were nominated are completely different from one another. Playing an individual with a lost job and undergoing rehab at a mental institution in Silver Linings Playbook (2012) to playing the role of a FBI agent in American Hustle (2013) and an infamous sniper in American Sniper (2014), Cooper's performance in contrasting roles are eye-catching. He has not shied away from different roles and even though he may lose some battles, he will eventually win the war. #2 History spells Cooper's Success Out of the nine actors who have been nominated thrice consecutively for the Oscar award, eight have eventually won the award. The lone exception being Richard Burton, though many feel that he was sidelined albeit being a wonderful actor. This spells sure success for the aspiring actor nicknamed, "Coop". With history's backing and more good work to follow, the award is not far from Cooper. #3 Dedication deserves its reward Bradley Cooper is one actor on whom every film director and producer can put their hopes on. The actor is dedicated and loyal to his work. His willpower sees him through the most difficult of scenes in films and it is that will, that has made a shy boy that Cooper is, into a star who gave a big 'yes' to play the most lethal sniper in U.S history. The dedication and commitment to his work certainly deserves more. Though his accolades are growing every year, an Oscar would complete it all. We hope and believe that sooner or later there would be an Oscar award for Best Actor going to...........Bradley Cooper!
