Movie Awards Nominee Oliver Cooper Insists He’s ‘America’s Dirtbag’

Few people out there would actively go out of their way to declare themselves the greatest dirtbag of the year. Then again, few people are Oliver Cooper.

The “Project X” breakout star is one of five nominees for the inaugural Best On-Screen Dirtbag award at the MTV Movie Awards this year. He’s also the only one of the nominees doing everything he possibly can to convince the voting masses that he’s the one destined for Golden Popcorn glory. In his latest campaign video, Cooper calls out Best On-Screen Dirtbag frontrunner Bryce Dallas Howard, saying that “the prettiest racist that [critics] have ever seen” would easily win an award for Best On-Screen Racist… but when it comes to the Dirtbag department, Cooper feels it’s his “Project X” character Costa that deserves the win.

“Only one of the nominees was universally reviled [this year] as a dirtbag,” Cooper’s voice declares in his latest campaign video. “He was the only nominee who stole drugs from a drug dealer, put a midget in an oven, betrayed all of his friends and burnt down an entire neighborhood. Oliver Cooper is America’s dirtbag.”
