Bradley Cooper, 44, opens up to Oprah Winfrey during her SuperSoul Conversations in Times Square about not being nominated for Best Director for A Star is Born at this year’s Oscars.
“I was with my friend. I was in New York City at a coffee shop and I looked down at my phone and Nicole [my publicist] had texted me and they said congratulations on these other things, but they didn’t tell me the bad news,” he says of the nominations he received for Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture. “I went, ‘Oh wow,’ and the first thing I felt was embarrassment, actually felt embarrassed that I didn’t do my part.”
Oprah then replies, “I’m at least glad you said that. If I were you, I’d be feeling some kind of way about it.”
BCoops responds, “Yeah embarrassment. I went ‘Oh gosh, I didn’t do my job.’”
