It’s been years since many celebs, be it Bollywood or even Hollywood, have been questioning the authenticity of the annual award shows. A Star Is Born actor Bradley Cooper has recently slammed the annual saga labelling them as ‘utterly meaningless’.
Cooper was recently seen having a joint chat with hid A Star Is Born co-star Anthony Ramos. There, the stars opened up about various interesting things about cinema. One thing that sticks with many was Cooper criticising the award shows. For the unversed, Ramos played John Laurens for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical-magic Hamilton.
In their conversation with Interview Magazine, Ramos said, “It’s about me. I’m the only one here from my cast, so it’s only me.” This was his reply to Bradley Cooper’s sarcastic response, “I must be special.”
Bradley Cooper added to the conversation, “That awards season stuff is a real test. It’s set up to foster that mentality. It’s quite a thing to work through, and it’s completely devoid of artistic creation. It’s not why you sacrifice everything to create art, and yet you spend so much time being a part of it if you’re, in quotes, ‘lucky enough to be a part of it’.”
“It’s ultimately a great thing because it really does make you face ego, vanity, and insecurity. It’s very interesting and utterly meaningless,” Bradley Cooper concluded.
As we said, Hollywood is not any less affected about the authenticity of award shows, and this statement by Bradley Cooper is definitely in-line to the same.
