It is known to all that the award shows repel Bradley Cooper, although eight times he got nominated for Oscar. The actor turned director called it something ‘devoid of artistic creation’.
The actor felt humiliated
The 45 years old actor revealed that he felt much embarrassed when his 2019 film A Star is Born did not receive any nomination for Oscar. He expected at least nomination for the Best Director.
Recently, in an interview, where he was seen to share space with Anthony Ramos, Bradley Cooper shared his opinion about the award shows. The revealed that the award shows are actually ‘meaningless’ to him. In the same interview, the star shared that failing at the award show was quite disappointing to the whole team of the movie. He stated that making it up as an individual was not a difficult task, but making it up as a part of the whole team was really tough for him. The whole cast and crew felt like they were not so special to go there. It was reflecting in every word of Cooper that he believes that the credit of a cinema goes to the whole team, not an individual. He described cinema as a story that was wonderfully described by a team of 150 to 200 people. He called it a ‘walking flag’.
The Star avoided the real issues
Despite all these negativities about the award shows, the Silver Linings Playbook star did not open his mouth about the real issues going on inside the award shows. That year, among the huge number of nominees, there were only four non-white persons to be nominated for the four sections of Oscar: best actor in the lead role, best actor in supporting role, best actress in a lead role, best actress in a supporting role.
