This was what Bradley Cooper told Oprah Winfrey when he apparently got snubbed from an Academy Award nomination for Best Director for his directorial debut "A Star is Born". "I felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part".
He recalled that he was in a coffee shop when a friend congratulated him for the nominations but left out the bad news.
Bradley Cooper made his directorial debut past year, but despite good reviews and a big box office haul, he's a little disappointed. He went on to tell the host that when he saw the list of Oscar nominations - "A Star Is Born" received eight - he felt embarrassed by the one he didn't get.
This was the actor's first time directing and it's now his fourth getting nominated for an Oscar. However, he added that in the end, it was about making something you believed in and working hard on it.
Bradley Cooper is far from the "Shallow" now.
Appearing on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square yesterday, Cooper was particularly honest. "You know, I've had an interesting road, and I've dealt with similar things in my life". It was also the movie that brought Cooper together with the incredible Lady Gaga.
The movie that had almost everyone who saw it singing and crying has been nominated for eight Oscars but Bradley Cooper has been snubbed by not even receiving a nod at the coveted award show.
"Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen".
Winfrey said she was "surprised" Cooper wasn't nominated for Best Director and asked him about his reaction to the news.
Bradley Cooper was just as upset by his Oscars Best Director snub as the rest of his fans.
