Bradley Cooper shared his sincere opinion on awards season. He has earned 8 Oscar nominations for both in front of and behind the camera.
In a recent conversation for Interview Magazine, Bradley Cooper spoke to Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos about why he finds awards season utterly meaningless.
Ramos explained that if you’re one of the people singled out during the Oscars race, then it’s easy to make the event all about yourself when you’re really a representation of the story that is told by 150 to 200 together. He further made a comparison of ourselves and the walking flag.
Why Cooper finds the award season meaningless?
To this Cooper agreed and expanded that actually The awards season stuff is a real test and It is a set up to foster that mentality.
He continued by saying that It’s ultimately a great thing. This is because it really does make you face ego, vanity, and insecurity. Also, It’s very interesting and utterly meaningless.
Not only this, but Cooper also echoed similar feelings about award nominations ahead of the 91st Academy Awards. In these academy awards, he received nominations for Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Picture for A Star Is Born. But he was ultimately snubbed when it came to a nomination for his directorial debut.
Deadline reported that the streaming service has officially acquired the rights to the film that Cooper will direct and will star in. Further, also for the films that he will produce from the script he co-wrote with Josh Singer.
Furthermore, he shared his views regarding Oscar nominations in a talk with Oprah Winfrey during her SuperSoul Conversation. He said that getting attention for the film was just icing on the cake. Also, Oscar nominations play into things that have nothing to do with creating art.
There was an announcement in January that Cooper is working on a Leonard Bernstein film.
