(Click through our photo gallery below to see his complete Oscar history.) Bradley Cooper had one of the strongest careers in Hollywood during the 2010s, first nominated in 2012 for his starring role in “Silver Linings Playbook” and now nominated for his eighth Oscar for producing Best Picture nominee “Joker.” While all those nominations are wonderful, the fact remains that Cooper still has yet to win the little gold man. “Joker” might just be his path to Oscar glory.
