And we get it.
In fact, Bradley Cooper’s directional debut has emerged as one of the Oscars’ frontrunners, raking in a whopping eight nominations, including Best Picture, Best Cinematography, Best Film and of course the Best Actor and Actress nods.
But while the public breathed a huge sigh of relief that Gaga and Bradley were given an Oscar nomination for their leading performances (something that Lady Gaga admitted reduced her to tears) and of course their song ‘Shallow’, Cooper was snubbed of a Best Director nomination, something Lady Gaga addressed.
‘At the end of the day he knows that he’s the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast’ she explained when asked about her thoughts on the oversight, and no, she didn’t go on to repeat her ‘100 people’ line.
But she needn’t have worried about comforting her co-star, as Bradley seems far more concerned about the upcoming ceremony for another reason, his scheduled performance.
Yes, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are set to perform the Oscar favourite, ‘Shallow’, from A Star Is Born live at the Academy Awards – and Bradley is said to be very scared.
‘I’m sure I’ll be terrified,’ Bradley told E! News when asked about the performance, going on to recall his nerves from his recent performance with Lady Gaga at her Las Vegas residency.
‘That was terrifying,’ he explained. ‘I just had to zen out and just pray that I wasn’t gonna ruin her show. She just crushed it for two hours. I thought, “Please let me just be on pitch.”’
Monday 25th February can’t come soon enough!
