Barbra Streisand snubbed “A Star Is Born” at the Oscars by choosing to instead introduce Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” as a nominee for Best Picture.
After she starred in the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born,” Streisand won the Oscar for Best Original Song for “Evergreen,” the same award Lady Gaga netted with her current hit “Shallow.”
Bradley Cooper’s 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born” wasn’t really all that great, an avid moviegoer and film aficionado has realized.
In a Facebook post, Joseph Willis, 39, said it dawned on him last week that the remake starring Cooper himself and experienced awards show groupie Lady Gaga was “middling at best” after rewatching the 1954 remake that was hailed as Judy Garland’s first great big comeback and universally loved by both the critics and the masses.
Being the first and only black woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress would seem like a watershed moment, but for Halle Berry it means “nothing.”
Congratulations to Viola Davis on her Oscar win for Actress in a Supporting Role for “Fences”!
Chris Rock came out swinging in one of the most anticipated opening monologues in years and took on the diversity controversy from the get-go at the 88th Academy Awards. Last night also saw Brie Larson win Best Actress, Leonardo DiCaprio snag Best Actor in his fifth nomination, Alejandro G. Iñárritu was named Best Director and Spotlight won Best Picture. With all that, the Oscars themselves did not have a great night ratings-wise with a 23.1/37 in metered market results.
