Bradley Cooper was 'embarrassed' by Oscars best director snub

2018 Billboard Music Awards- Show

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'.

'I was embarrassed. I was at a coffee shop in New York City and looked down at my phone and [publicist] Nicole [Caruso] has told me congratulations and said what we had been nominated for, ' he said.

He added, "And I went, 'Oh wow.' And the first thing I felt was embarrassment".

He recalled: "I was embarrassed". That's the trick. The trick is to make something you believe in and you work hard.

The 44-year-old star wrote, directed and starred in the fourth film version of A Star Is Born last year.

A Star Is Born is Cooper's directorial debut which follows up and coming singer Ally (Lady Gaga) as veteran performer Jackson Maine (Cooper) helps launch her career. It's not yet known what Gaga will sing at music's biggest night, but Deadline confirms she will hit the stage. His co-star, Lady Gaga, received a best actress nomination. "But it's amusing you ask that because I have thought about this". Cooper earned a nod in the Best Actor in a Lead Role category and recognition for Best Adapted Screenplay as well.

"I think because I'm 40, and I've gone through a lot in my life, I was able to do it with joy". "You know, I've had an interesting road, and I've dealt with similar things in my life".

The movie that had almost everyone who saw it singing and crying has been nominated for eight Oscars but Bradley Cooper has been snubbed by not even receiving a nod at the coveted award show.
