Bradley Cooper lost the Best Actor award to Cillian Murphy at the Golden Globes. Fans have been speculating about a rivalry between the two actors during the awards season. Many fans, favoring Murphy for the award, have gone so far as to accuse Cooper of being jealous of Murphy’s higher chances of winning the Oscar.

Bradley Cooper has been the victim of online shaming ever since he became a contender for the Best Actor Oscar. Fans of Oppenheimer star Cillian Murphy have brutally trolled the American Sniper actor for alleged jealousy towards Murphy. They inferred this from his comment in a Variety interview, which they perceived as a subtle dig at Murphy.

While discussing his Maestro role with Emma Stone, Cooper stated, “This wasn’t like you got a call, and in six months you’re going to do it. This had to have taken years.” Fans alleged that he was referring to Murphy’s revelation that he had prepared six months for the Oppenheimer role. Fans also shared Murphy’s Golden Globe-winning moment on social media, accusing Cooper of concealing his anger at losing the award (via Men’s Journal).

The fan theory suggesting a potential rivalry and jealousy might be a stretch, however, there could be some truth to Bradley Cooper’s Oscar aspirations. The Aloha actor has missed out on the awards nine times, including three times for Best Actor and once for Best Supporting Actor. Despite fans favoring Murphy over Cooper, another actor shocked them at the Critics Choice Awards by winning the Best Actor. Paul Giamatti is now a frontrunner to win the Best Actor Award for his role in The Holdovers.
