Movie Stars: Cooper, Bradley: Best Male Performance (American Sniper) at MTV Movie Awards

Bradley Cooper won the Golden Popcorn of the MTC Movie Awards for best male performance on Sunday night.

He made reference to American Sniper subject Chris Kyle during his acceptance, dedicating the award to Kyle, who would have been 41 this week.

Surprisingly, the actor beat out Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Miles Teller (Whiplash) and Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher).

Josh Hutcherson won the honor for his performance in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at last year’s show.
