Bradley Cooper was immediately ridiculed for the Oscar nominations he had received, and this did not sit well with him.
When he was sitting down with Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Sean Hayes for an episode of the SmartLess podcast, he said that an unknown director had just spoken poorly of his accomplishments. Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Sean Hayes were present.
Over the course of his career, the actor and director has picked up quite a few trophies; however, has he ever been honoured with an Academy Award?
Chance that Bradley Cooper will win an Oscar
Although Bradley has been nominated for a total of nine Academy Awards, he has never been successful in taking home the prestigious trophy.
The actor has received two Grammy Awards in addition to the British Academy Film Award he previously won. In addition, he has been nominated for one Tony Award in addition to his six Golden Globe nominations.
Bradley was nominated for an Academy Award in the categories of Best Actor for the film “Silver Lining Playbook,” Best Supporting Actor for the film “American Hustle,” Best Picture and Best Actor for the films “American Sniper” and “A Star Is Born,” and Best Picture and Best Actor for the films “Joker” and “Nightmare Alley.”
In the podcast, what did he have to say about it?
When the actor was at a CAA party in 2017, a director whose identity was kept secret asked him in front of another actress who had been nominated for three Oscars, “What world are we living in where you have seven nominations and she’s only got three?” The actor was present when the director made the remark.
Bradley was left speechless after hearing the comment. He gave the following definition: “I’m like, ‘dude, why are you being an a*****e?'” That is something that I will never, ever, ever forget. You can go f*** yourself now.
He also recalled another event from 2011, which was when he received his first Oscar nomination for the film “Silver Lining Playbook.” According to reports, an actress gave him the following instruction regarding the time: “I saw your movie. You are deserving of the nomination.”
Not only did he enjoy the tone of the actress, but he also enjoyed the fact that he was able to teach the hosts in it. “I remember thinking, what the f*** is this town?’ Can you even fathom saying something like that to another person?
