Bradley Cooper Tells Oprah He Was ‘Embarrassed’ Learning About Oscar Snub

Oscars Oscar Academy Awards Placeholder

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga took on the roles of a lifetime when they chose to remake the classic film 'A Star is Born.' Luckily, their hard work and seemingly natural chemistry paid off and the pair is almost sweeping award season for many categories - except 'Best Director'.

A Star Is Born is bound for Oscars glory after landing a whopping eight Academy Awards nominations.

"I'm never surprised about not getting anything".

"Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen", she said.

Gaga is also nominated in the best pop solo performance category for Joanne (Where Do You Think You're Goin'?). The hit is her latest release and it broke Spotify's record for the most plays in a 24-hour period.

"I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn't done my job", he elaborated. "I was embarrassed", he confessed, per People. "Like, 'Oh gosh, I didn't do my job'". He responded, "I do". He is up for three Oscars for A Star is Born, including nominations for best actor, best picture and best adapted screenplay alongside Eric Roth and Will Fetters. The stars' duet, "Shallow", was nominated for best original song.

And, despite the slight snub, the Hangover star has been tipped for Best Actor at the bash - and still has the support of co-star Lady Gaga, who branded him the "best director in her eyes".

Cooper told Winfrey the best advice Gaga gave him was about his singing.

"I know that he's so happy that we've all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition", the singer said during an interview with the Los Angeles Times after the nominees for the 2019 Academy Awards were announced. "It's like acting, I'm actually talking". "That's the trick, to make something that you believe in".
