Bradley Cooper Discusses Oscars Snub: "I Was Embarrassed"

07 February 2019

His co-star, Lady Gaga, received a best actress nomination.

However, for an upcoming episode of 'Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations, ' the actor opens up about the day he found out the bittersweet news.

We hear that Gaga will be performing at the Grammys where she is nominated for five awards, four for "Shallow" from A "Star Is Born": record of the year, song of the year, best pop duo/group (with Bradley Cooper) performance and best song written for visual media. But in a recent conversation with Oprah Winfrey, even he admits that he was a tad bummed about not getting an Oscar nomination for best director for A Star is Born. "And I went, 'Oh, wow.' And the first thing I felt was embarrassment".

"It was a very personal thing, this movie, and I really did show myself in a way that I thought, 'Oh wow, this is vulnerable.' And I said to myself, 'If people don't like it, please don't let that stop inspiring you to make art'".

Winfrey did her best to comfort the star, revealing that she would also be "feeling some kind of way about it" had she been in his position.

"You never know what's going to happen".

"Think about it, I felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part", he told Winfrey. The stars' duet, "Shallow", was nominated for best original song. "It was the best direction".

"A Star Is Born", however, is likely to walk away with some Oscars gold, receiving a total of eight nominations with an nearly surefire win in the Best Original Song category. "It's like acting, I'm actually talking". You're telling a story when you sing. He spoke about the emotional moment when his father died in his arms in 2011.
