Despite a busy season of high-profile awards shows, Bradley Cooper tells Ryan Seacrest being at the Oscars is "surreal."

When asked whether or not he feels his Silver Linings Playbook role has changed the path of his career, a clearly elated Bradley told the E! host, "I don’t know. The one thing I do know is that it’s incredible to be here today with my mom and to be here for this movie that Robert DeNiro was in. It’s surreal."

"We hung out a little bit," laughed Bradley.
