To date, "A Star Is Born" has racked up $417.4M at the global box office.

Lady Gaga credited the film's success to Cooper's leadership abilities, stating at a press event on September 11, 2018 (via People), "Bradley really has been an incredible leader in creating a lovely family". The movie is also nominated for best sound as well as best actress for Gaga (she's also sharing original music credits).

"I was not surprised, I'm never surprised about not getting nominated", he said when asked about the snub during Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations event in NY on Tuesday. "You know, I've had an interesting road, and I've dealt with similar things in my life". I was with my friend at a coffee shop in New York City, and I looked down at my phone and Nicole [Caruso, his publicist] had texted me congratulations on these other [nominations], but didn't tell me the bad news.

"And the first thing I felt was embarrassment, actually", Cooper told Winfrey.

The actor has since broken his silence on the snub, saying that he was "embarrassed" and felt like he "hadn't done" his job.

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.
