Bradley Cooper may have won only one Golden Globe award, but things appear to be looking up for the actor turned director.

The British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) recently announced the nominations for the 72nd annual ceremony, and the 44-year-old actor received five—we repeat, five—nods for A Star Is Born: Best Film, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Music.

This makes him the first-ever person to receive five nominations in BAFTA’s 72-year history. The previous record holder was George Clooney, who received four nods for Good Night, and Good Luck and Syriana in 2005.

“What we think is a first is that Bradley Cooper has been nominated for producer, director, writer, actor and composer,” Emma Baehr, director of awards and membership for BAFTA, told The Hollywood Reporter.
