Lady Gaga is upset that her costar in A Star Is Born didn't get an Oscar nomination for directing the film. Bradley Cooper was nominated for Best Actor in the film and a number of other categories, but Gaga thinks Cooper should have been acknowledged for his role in directing it. Even without Cooper's directorial nomination, the film is nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Picture, and Best Original Song. 

A Star Is Born has plenty of Oscar nominations.

The film is nominated for eight Oscars including: 

Best Adapted Screenplay

Best Picture 

Best Actress

Best Actor

Best Supporting Actor

Best Cinematography 

Best Original Song

Best Sound Mixing

But Lady Gaga thinks the film needs at least one more. 

Bradley Cooper starred in the film and is nominated for Best Actor. But Lady Gaga thinks he should have been nominated for directing the film as well. 

Gaga says Cooper is "the best director."

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Gaga praised Cooper for his role as director. "Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen. But at the end of the day, he knows that he's the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast," she said. "I know that he's so happy that we've all been nominated and that the film was recognized and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition."

Others agree with Gaga.

Fellow actor Rob Lowe also feels like Cooper got snubbed by not being nominated. He says that Cooper was "robbed."

I'm sure plenty of people are screaming internally at the fact Cooper didn't get nominated. This person has just the right GIF to show how so many are feeling. 

This person feels more people than just Cooper were snubbed. Timothée Chalamet is also a name that seems to pop up for being snubbed for his role in Beautiful Boy.

Some people, on the other hand, didn't think Cooper should have been nominated. 

This person didn't think Cooper deserved a nomination for A Star Is Born and feels like if he were nominated, he wouldn't have won. They say they loved the movie, but I guess they didn't love it enough. 

This person has a slightly different definition of the word "snub" and thinks that a snub is when a project or person is nominated but doesn't win an award, even though they deserve it. I think their typo speaks for itself though. 

This person feels the film didn't deserve a nomination. The tweet says that the "female character makes no choices whatsoever and has no journey, but the male lead is 'authentic' in his art simply for being a drunk."

Cooper didn't seem phased by not being nominated.

Even though Cooper didn't get the Best Director nomination, he had nothing but kind words. "Everyone who worked on this film truly risked putting themselves out there—in the hope that in doing so people will connect and feel something deep and personal—the way films have made me feel since I was a kid. When I got this opportunity I knew I had to risk it all because I may never get another chance—so to be here today in a place where people who have seen the film are talking about how it makes them feel, something deep—that simple human thing—that we need each other—and the Academy to recognize that this morning—I just am so grateful," he said in a statement. 

Other people are more concerned with the Oscars' lack of diversity. 

Fans also feel that Ryan Coogler, director of the film Black Panther, was also snubbed for the Best Director Oscar. His film is nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Costume Design. 

This person says: What about the women? A woman has only been nominated for the Best Director Oscar five times in the awards show's 91-year history. No woman is nominated for the award this year, and the only woman to ever win was Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker in 2010.

The movie Crazy Rich Asians got no nominations at all, and fans are upset. Some people are saying that sends "a very clear message" about the Oscars' views on inclusion. 

Who are your Best Director nominees?

Do you think Cooper deserved the nomination, or should it go to someone else? Let us know.
