No matter what, Bradley Cooper is an Oscar-worthy director of Lady Gaga .
On Tuesday, the 201
While the Blast was a standout, Cooper celebrated his nominations and the nod of his movie with grace. "Anyone who has worked on this film has really risked taking a seat out there in the hope that people will connect and feel something deep and personal, just like movies have made me feel since childhood I've got this opportunity, I know I knew I had to risk everything because I'd never get another chance – so here today, in a place where people who watched the movie talk about how he treated himself feeling something deep – that simple human thing – that we need each other – and the academy to recognize this morning – I'm just so thankful, "he said in a statement.
Meanwhile, his famous co-star had the perfect answer when asked about the fool in an interview with The Los Angeles Times . "Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen, but by the end of the day, he knows he's the best director in my eyes, and in his eyes, as his cast," she said. "I know he's so happy we were all nominated and the movie was recognized and we all feel really overjoyed for the recognition."
Needless to say that they are both the consummate professionals.
With Cooper's Oscar nominations of up to seven, Gaga also collects an impressive nomination list. Having won her second Golden Globe award earlier this month, this time for the best original song, Gaga is now a three-time Oscar nominee, earning her first nominee for the Actors and her second Best Original Song title this year.
"There is really no award higher in acting than the Oscar, and it's also very special for music," she told The Times . "When I was a little girl, I've always admired all the artists who put so much hard work and passion into filmmaking – when I look at the award ceremonies, I cried with them – it was always like I was them. Even though I was not there, it has always been big business for my family. "

Now the threefold threat is back among the contenders – though initially she thought that was not the case. As Mother Monster told the newspaper, as she is about to go to sleep late for her shows in Las Vegas, her fiancé Christian Carino leaves her notes on any nominations. On Tuesday, however, a note was missing.
"I woke up and there was no note, so I thought I did not get a nomination – or we're not allowed to get a nomination, so I called my manager Bobby – because Bobby is good with bad news – to see What was And then he told me all the nominations and I started crying, "she told the Times .
Do not fret – the newspaper confirmed that later a note was actually found.
