Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Actor, director, and composer of some songs, for ‘A Star Is Born’ Bradley Cooper reveals he was embarrassed after being snubbed by the Academy Awards in the Best Director category, despite the fact that the movie received tons of nominations.
‘A Star Is Born’ is Cooper’s directorial debut starring himself and pop diva Lady Gaga. The movie is the fourth version of the film which started in 1937 starring starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.
Cooper opened up to Oprah on her show ‘Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square’ about the snub telling her that he felt like he hadn’t done his job.
The actor recounts the sad story to her narrating that he was in a coffee shop with a friend when he received a text from his publicist Nicole Caruso congratulating him for being nominated in the Best Actor category and for the rest of the nominations but carefully omitted the bad news of getting shut out of the Best Director category.
He says that he was not surprised that he was never nominated for such category but he said that he did feel embarrassed for not doing his job on the film. He adds that even though he did get a nomination anyway, it still wouldn’t give a sense of whether he did his job or not— that to truly feel like you have done something is to just to do something you believe in and work hard to achieve it.
Despite the brush off, Cooper can be happy that the film is nominated for the biggest prize of the night, Best Picture.
