Bradley Cooper Responds to Best Director Oscar's Snub: 'I Was Embarrassed'”

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

In total, A Star Is Born was nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Original Song for "Shallow", Best Actress in a Leading Role for Gaga, Best Actor in a Leading Role for Cooper, Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Sam Elliot, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing and Best Picture.

During his appearance on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations From Times Square, he added: 'I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn't done my job'. "I was surprised, I got to admit that you weren't nominated for best director", Winfrey said.

"Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen", she said. I'll work on that.

When host Oprah Winfrey asked why he felt that way, Cooper explained, "I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn't done my job..." To date, "A Star Is Born" has racked up $417.4M at the global box office.

To which Bradley responded: "I do".

"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 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. I went, 'Oh, gosh.
