The world's tiniest violin is playing for him.
Fans of Bradley Cooper and A Star Is Born feel the 44-year-old has been snubbed by the Oscars for not nominating him in the Best Director category.
Bradley is nominated for A Star Is Born, the 2018 movie in which he directed and starred in, in three different categories: Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Picture.
The actor was not recognised in the Best Director category for the film, which is his directorial debut.
Fans were horrified at the apparent “snub”, and now Bradley himself has commented on how he feels about the situation.
Bradley 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.
“I was embarrassed. I was at a coffee shop in New York City and looked down at my phone and Nicole [Caruso, his publicist] had told me congratulations and said what we had been nominated for,” he recalled. “They didn’t even give me the bad news.”
He added, “I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn’t done my job.”
We don’t think Bradley should feel too hard done by, he still has lots of time to take the award home for Best Director in the future.
