Awards season is "utterly meaningless" and "devoid of artistic creation" says Bradley Cooper



- While having a discussion for Interview Magazine with “A Star is Born”, “Hamilton” and “In the Heights” actor Anthony Ramos about their careers, Coopers states this about awards season:

“That awards season stuff is a real test. It’s set up to foster that mentality. It’s quite a thing to work through, and it’s completely devoid of artistic creation. It’s not why you sacrifice everything to create art, and yet you spend so much time being a part of it if you’re, in quotes, “lucky enough to be a part of it.” It’s ultimately a great thing because it really does make you face ego, vanity, and insecurity. It’s very interesting and utterly meaningless.”

- Cooper has said in the past that after he didn’t get an Oscar nomination for Best Director for “A Star is Born” he said he felt like he was tricked into “thinking the snub meant he did not do his job on the movie” and the insight left him “embarrassed” and demonstrated to him that “even if I got the nomination, it should not give me any sense of whether I did my job or not. That’s the trick, to make something that you believe in.”

- Bradley has three Oscar nominations for Best Actor (“Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Sniper,” and “A Star Is Born”) and one supporting (“American Hustle”). He’s also has been Oscar nominations as a producer (“American Sniper,” “A Star Is Born,” and “Joker”) and a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination as co-writer for “A Star Is Born”.
