She said she is trying to stay on an even keel, preparing for the "best of the worst".
A Star Is Born follows Gaga's character Ally - a girl-next-door who has given up on a music career until she is discovered by grizzled rock star Jackson, played by first-time director Bradley. "Think about it. I felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part". A Star is Born was Cooper's directorial debut.
His co-star Lady Gaga reacted to the news shortly after it was announced, saying that "the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast".
"And the first thing I felt was embarrassment, actually", Cooper told Winfrey. "But it's amusing you ask that because I have thought about this". "So it's like, if I don't get one, it means I have to triple the work and I'm going to keep on until I get one".
She began: 'I would not be standing up here if it weren't for you, Bradley.
Cooper, who directed 2018's A Star Is Born, revealed to Oprah Winfrey at the Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square event on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, that he was initially humiliated when the Academy didn't nominate him for best director. "Oh gosh, I didn't do my job". The movie is also nominated for best sound as well as best actress for Gaga (she's also sharing original music credits).
Despite the snub, he and Gaga are reportedly set to perform the Oscar-nominated bop 'Shallow' at the award ceremony.
"You can never really be so sure", Cardi B told The Associated Press while promoting her new Pepsi "Okurrr" commercial, which will air during the awards telecast.
