    A Star Is Born is undoubtedly one of the films of 2018, bagging Critics’ Choice awards and a Golden Globe earlier this month, and we’re only two ceremonies into award season.

    There’s no surprise however, with Bradley Cooper’s directional debut receiving an extremely positive reaction, from Lady Gaga and Bradley’s beautiful love story as Ally and Jackson to their writing and singing the songs live.

    The public breathed a huge sigh of relief therefore when both Gaga and Bradley were given an Oscar nomination for their leading performances in the film.


    And while receiving an Academy Award nod for his acting is no new feat for Bradley, previously nominated for his roles in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and American Sniper, for Lady Gaga this is a first.

    The 32-year-old who has already taken home the Critics’ Choice award for best actress this year, opened up about the moment that she heard of her Oscars recognition, and unsurprisingly – we like her even more.

    According to the singer, she slept through it all.


    ‘I’ve been trying to get some sleep because I’m on showbiz time,’ she explained to the New York Times when explaining why she slept through the 5am announcement.

    ‘I woke up around 8:30 and I didn’t know anything about it,’ she continued, going on to call her manager who told her the good news.

    ‘I just burst into tears,’ she explained – and we don’t blame her!

    Gaga’s Oscar nod comes as one of A Star Is Born’s whopping seven nominations.

    Monday 25th February can’t come soon enough!
