"A Star Is Born" did in fact birth a constellation of stars (a loveable dog, endless bottles of self-tanner and the film's unsung hero, Gail), but perhaps none shone as bright as Bradley Cooper who made the impressive leap from actor to director for the film.
He recalled: "I was embarrassed". "I was with my friend at a coffee shop in New York City, and I looked down at my phone, and Nicole [Caruso, his publicist] had texted me congratulations on these other things but didn't tell me the bad news".
It seems the 32-year-old and her co-star Bradley Cooper have chose to split up so they can attend both events.
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.
Cooper received directing nods at this year's Golden Globes and the Directors Guild of America Awards. "I didn't do my job".
"I was not surprised, I'm never surprised about not getting nominated", he said of the snub.
"Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen", she said. It was also the movie that brought Cooper together with the incredible Lady Gaga. "It's like acting, I'm actually talking". 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.
