Superstar Actor ‘Embarrassed’ By This Oscars Decision

Superstar Actor ‘Embarrassed’ By This Oscars Decision

But in a recent conversation with Oprah Winfrey, even he admits that he was a tad bummed about not getting an Oscar nomination for best director for A Star is Born. "I was embarrassed", he confessed, per People. "They didn't even give me the bad news".

While he may not have gotten a Best Director nod, Cooper will be taking the stage at the 2019 Oscars to perform the film's hit song, "Shallow", with his co-star, Lady Gaga. "I went, 'Oh wow, ' and the first thing I felt was embarrassment, actually felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part".

If there ever was a professional in every way, it is Bradley Cooper. "You know, I've had an interesting road, and I've dealt with similar things in my life".

The 44-year-old actor opened up about being left out on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square on Tuesday in New York City, saying the moment was hard to move past. "But it's amusing you ask that because I have thought about this".

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.

Conley has bounced back from the season-ending injury he suffered in January 2018 and is playing at a high level again. Memphis has also listened to offers from the Utah Jazz , who initiated negotiations centered around Ricky Rubio .

Cooper recalled that while taping one scene in the movie where his character, Jackson, sings, Gaga advised him "Don't try to sing it".

"But you know you did", Winfrey assured him.

"It was the best direction", he said.

While we'll be missing out on the duet we're looking for, hopefully, the actor comes home with some hardware, after being snubbed by the Academy for a director nomination, something Cooper admitted to Oprah Winfrey recently he was "embarrassed" about.
