Cooper sat down with Winfrey for "Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations", which will air February 16 on the OWN Network, and opened up about the nominations he got - and one he did not.
After the nominations were announced, Cooper's co-star, Lady Gaga, spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the snub and shared that she supports Cooper regardless of any nomination or lack thereof. "I know that he's so happy that we've all been nominated and that the film was recognized and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition".
"You never know what's going to happen".
The actor has since broken his silence on the snub, saying that he was "embarrassed" and felt like he "hadn't done" his job.
Bradley Cooper talks to Oprah Winfrey about "A Star Is Born", which earned eight Academy Award nominations. He responded, "I do". He also acted in the movie and received three Oscar nods for his work, including Best Actor, Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. "Her best advice. she came up to me and whispered and said, 'Don't try to sing it, '" Cooper revealed.
"Shallow" is nominated for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
The Academy may not have shown Cooper any love, but he's getting plenty of praise from Lady Gaga. "It was the best direction". "When he took the last breath, I honestly felt like it went into me, and I've never seen anything the same since".
