Lady Gaga’s ‘Star’ Turn Was Made Possible By Her Trust In Bradley Cooper

Audiences have been singing the praises of Lady Gaga and her performance in A Star Is Born. It’s her first big-screen role as a leading lady, and it comes in the first movie directed by co-star Bradley Cooper. Those two facts are not mere coincidence: Gaga says it was Cooper’s totally fresh approach to working [...]

Which ‘A Star Is Born’ track deserves Best Original Song Oscar: ‘Shallow,’ ‘Always Remember Us This Way’ or ‘I’ll Never Love Again’? [Poll]

Which ‘A Star Is Born’ track deserves Best Original Song Oscar: ‘Shallow,’ ‘Always Remember Us This Way’ or ‘I’ll Never Love Again’? [Poll]
The soundtrack to “A Star Is Born” is dominating the charts just as the film continues to add more millions to its box office total. The music featured throughout, from acoustic ballads to electro pop bangers, is a huge part of “A Star Is Born’s” success, and has very quickly made it the film to beat at the Oscars in the Best Original Song category. Warner Bros. is campaigning three of the film’s tracks for Best Original Song: “Shallow,” “Always Remember Us This Way” and “I’ll Never Love Again.” All three are integral to “A Star Is Born,” a virtual necessity to win in this category, and arguably work well even outside the context of the film.

Sasha Velour Meets World: ‘Drag Race’ Winner Talks Life Before and After Ru
Sasha Velour seems most at ease while lounging in repose, wearing a silky robe in her brand new, two-story home in Brooklyn’s Prospect Heights. It’s noon, and right after her house clears, she’ll begin the hours-long process of beating her face, cinching her waist and dressing up for Rihanna’s Fourth Annual Diamond Ball: a star-studded charity gala hosted by the pop star and entrepreneur at Cipriani Wall Street. The next morning, pictures of her in a gorgeous gown covered in gold metals and colorful jewels — and draped over with red velour,

‘A Star is Born’ would make Golden Globes history with wins for Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper

‘A Star is Born’ would make Golden Globes history with wins for Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper‘s remake of “A Star is Born” looks set to make Golden Globes history. Just two weeks after the news came that the studio was submitting it as a drama, we are predicting that it could sweep the top awards. The blockbuster is closing in on “First Man” for Best Drama while Lady Gaga is rising up the ranks of the Best Actress chart. And Cooper could take home Globes for both directing and starring in this latest remake of the classic tale of Hollywood.

This is the first time that a version of this story is competing at the Globes as a drama. We had thought “A Star is Born” would contend here as musical. But after the decision by Warner Bros., we’ve moved it over to the drama categories in our Golden Globes predictions center. Be sure to update your picks.

A Star Is Born hexes Halloween at UK box office

It’s another week at the top for Bradley Cooper’s music-world drama, which sees off Jamie Lee Curtis’s return in Halloween

Having risen impressively from third place to the top spot at the UK box office a week ago, Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born remains chart champ for another session, resisting the challenge of Halloween. The romantic drama starring Cooper and Lady Gaga fell just 7% in box office from the previous weekend, and now stands at £14.9m after 19 days of play. For context, every other film in the UK Top 10 fell by numbers ranging from 39% (Smallfoot) to 56% (The House with a Clock in Its Walls).

A Star Is Born's Butt Song Isn't Getting Any Oscars Love

A Star Is Born's Butt Song Isn't Getting Any Oscars Love
The original A Star Is Born song "Why Did You Do That?", otherwise known by Lady Gaga fans as the Butt Song, will not be submitted for Academy Award consideration. As far as songs are considered, Warner Bros. chose three originals from the movie, but only one will be eligible for the Oscars when all is said and done.

"Shallow", "Always Remember Us This Way", and "I'll Never Love Again" were the three songs that were chosen. But, "I'll Never Love Again" will probably be the number one pick for the film.

"Why Did You Do That?" is a song that Lady Gaga's Ally and Bradley Cooper's Jackson have a debate about in A Star is Born. The specific line, "Why'd you come around me with an ass like that?" made Jackson Maine offer up a look of disgust, and has been a hot topic of debate since the film hit theaters.

Sorry, Bradley Cooper and Diane Warren, but you won’t get a Best Original Song Oscar nomination for ‘A Star Is Born’

Sorry, Bradley Cooper and Diane Warren, but you won’t get a Best Original Song Oscar nomination for ‘A Star Is Born’
Bradley Cooper won’t get five Oscar nominations for “A Star Is Born” and Diane Warren may have to wait a little longer to get her 10th nomination and first victory. That’s because Warner Bros. has submitted three tracks from “A Star Is Born” for Best Original Song consideration, and none of them are penned by Cooper or Warren.

As posted on its Fyc site, the three tunes are “Shallow” (duh), “I’ll Never Love Again” and “Always Remember Us This Way.” All three are co-written by Lady Gaga. “Shallow” was also written by Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. “I’ll Never Love Again” counts Natalie Hemby, Hillary Lindsey and Aaron Raitiere as its other songwriters. Hemby, Lindsey and Lori McKenna also penned “Always Remember Us This Way.” The Oscars has a two-song limit per film, so all three won’t make the cut.

‘A Star Is Born’: Lady Gaga Could Become a Triple Oscar Nominee as Warner Bros. Selects Best Original Song Contenders

‘A Star Is Born’: Lady Gaga Could Become a Triple Oscar Nominee as Warner Bros. Selects Best Original Song Contenders
A Star Is Born” is looking to dominate this year’s Oscar race for best original song by campaigning three tracks for the prize. According to its Fyc page, Warner Bros. is submitting “Shallow,” “I’ll Never Love Again,” and “Always Remember Us This Way” into the original song race for the 91st Academy Awards. Oscar rules state there can only be two nominated songs from one film, so Warner Bros. is hoping to maximize their chances by submitting three songs for consideration.

The Oscar for best original song is presented to the songwriters behind each track, which bodes well for Lady Gaga. The musician is a credited songwriter on all three “A Star Is Born” songs being submitted for the Oscar. Should Warner Bros. manage to get two songs nominated, Gaga could earn a total of three Oscar nominations next year since she’s also a frontrunner for a best actress nomination.

Whose Oscar chances does Olivia Colman’s lead campaign hurt more: Glenn Close’s or Lady Gaga’s?

Whose Oscar chances does Olivia Colman’s lead campaign hurt more: Glenn Close’s or Lady Gaga’s?
The Best Actress Oscar race appeared to be a two-person battle between eternal bridesmaid Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), the It girl from the It movie of the season thus far. But just like Emma Stone‘s arrival in “The Favourite,” her co-star Olivia Colman has crashed the party, opting to campaign in lead instead of supporting, and now we have a potentially very interesting three-person race. This isn’t good news for any Best Actress contender — Colman’s already shot up to third in our odds behind Gaga and Close — but should Close or Gaga be more worried about Colman’s presence? Let’s take a closer look.

Close had been the season-long frontrunner until two weeks ago, when Gaga shifted to the No. 1 spot in our predictions. A six-time nominee, she has the overdue narrative, otherwise a seventh loss would

Bo Report: Dazzling debut for Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga in ‘A Star is Born’

A Star is Born.’ (Photo: Warner Bros)

While Hollywood films usually open day-and-date in Australia, staggering the release here can a smart tactic, and so it proved last weekend for A Star is Born.

Warner Bros’ musical romance took $42.9 million in its first weekend in the Us three weeks ago, an impressive figure that was dwarfed by Sony’s unforeseen blockbuster Venom, which grabbed $80 million.

Avoiding that head-to-head confrontation in Oz paid off handsomely as the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga movie had a stellar debut, WB’s biggest of the year so far.

Meanwhile romantic comedy Badaai Ho drew plenty of Bollywood fans and Lorna Tucker’s biopic Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist and Ukrainian dark comedy Donbass failed to cut through.

Stephen McCallum’s crime drama 1% had a modest start but is already a big success commercially, with sales to the Us and more than a dozen major markets,

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack held firm to the Number One on the Billboard 200 for the second straight week as the album added another 143,000 total copies to its tally.

As Billboard notes, A Star Is Born is now the second Lady Gaga album to spend more than one week in the top spot, and the first to do it since Born This Way in 2011; all of Gaga’s other Number One albums only enjoyed a one-week cameo atop the Billboard 200.

How the 2019 Best Actress Oscar race could mirror 1987: Is Lady Gaga this year’s Cher?

How the 2019 Best Actress Oscar race could mirror 1987: Is Lady Gaga this year’s Cher?
“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film ‘Moonstruck’ right now,” proclaimed Lady Gaga upon accepting her Golden Globe for “American Horror Story: Hotel” in 2016. Little did she know how true that may be just three years later. Gaga has earned some of the best reviews of her career for playing Ally, a singer on the rise, in “A Star Is Born.” This attention has translated into early Oscar buzz for 2019, with some declaring her the frontrunner to win Best Actress even over much more seasoned actresses. One of those thespians is Glenn Close, who may see a bit of history repeating 31 years after losing for one of her most iconic roles.

‘Venom’ Licks $461M Global; ‘Star Is Born’ Strums Past $200M; ‘Halloween’ Takes $92M Ww Bow – International Box Office

  • Deadline
Updated, Sunday writethru: Sony’s Venom continues to lead the international box office, scoring a hat trick at No. 1 with $32.3 million this weekend for an offshore cume of $290.7M and a global total to date of $461.2M — and that’s with China and Japan still on deck. In second, Warner Bros’ A Star Is Born rocked out to $22.8M to push the offshore total to $74.7M and the worldwide tally past the $200M mark.

Behind those overseas is Universal/Miramax/Blumhouse’s Halloween. The pic’s offshore rollout is staggered with Jamie Lee Curtis’ badass Laurie Strode striding into 23 markets this session, including only three majors. The reboot-sequel slashed away at $14.3M in its debut. Coupled with the movie’s scary good domestic opening, that lifts the worldwide bow to $91.8M.

‘Venom’ Rules International Box Office Again, ‘A Star Is Born’ Crosses $200 Million Worldwide
“Venom” remains a force to be reckoned with overseas as the Tom Hardy superhero movie topped the foreign box office for the third weekend in a row.

Sony’s “Venom” secured the No. 1 spot abroad with $32 million from 65 markets, taking its international total to $290.7 million. It earned $18.1 million in North America for a worldwide total of $460.2 million.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros.’ “A Star Is Born” continues to do monster business of its own. The acclaimed musical drama starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga generated an impressive $22.8 million from 75 overseas markets, bringing its tally to $74.7 million overseas and $201 million globally. “A Star Is Born” opened in Australia with $4.7 million in 536 venues, as well as Hong Kong with $629,000 in 58 locations. Top holdovers include the United Kingdom ($3.9 million on 846 screens), Italy ($1.5 million on 614 screens), and France ($1.5 million on 353 screens). It debuts next in Japan on Dec. 21.

‘A Star Is’ torn: Readers divided over the film’s categorization at the Golden Globes

‘A Star Is’ torn: Readers divided over the film’s categorization at the Golden Globes
It wasn’t on “The Martian” scale of “Lol Wtf” when Warner Bros. opted to submit “A Star Is Born” in drama instead of comedy/musical at the Golden Globes, but it did start a heated debate: Where should it go? Is it a drama? Or a musical? (It definitely isn’t a comedy.) In a recent poll, our readers were almost evenly split, with 56 percent believing the film should be in comedy/musical and 44 percent declaring it a drama.

If the Hollywood Foreign Press Association rejects Warner Bros.’ submission, then “A Star Is Born” will compete in comedy/musical just like the 1954 and 1976 versions did; those films won multiple Globes, including acting prizes for Judy Garland, James Mason, Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

“It’s definitely a musical,” user na digga wrote. “I can’t see the globes not placing ‘star is born’ and ‘the favorite’ [sic] in comedy/musical

Halloween Slaughters the Box Office with a Huge $77.5M Debut

Blumhouse's Halloween easily scored the number one position at this weekend's box office. The impressive opening of $77.5 million domestically is the franchise's best by far, beating Rob Zombie's previous 2007 opening of $26 million, and also scoring the second highest R-rated debut behind Andres Muschietti's big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. It arrives as the second best October weekend opening of all time, just barely missing the record set by Venom a few weeks ago. Overseas, the horror film brought in an additional $14.3 million, making for a grand total of $91.8 million for the weekend. Blumhouse only spent $10 million to make the film, which pretty much guarantees that a sequel will be made.

Following behind Halloween this weekend is A Star is Born and Sony's Venom, with $19.3 million and $18.1 million, respectively. The Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga-led movie is continuing to be a box office draw, having earned $126.3 million domestically to date.

Box Office: ‘Halloween’ Slashes Franchise Record With $77.5 Million Launch
“Halloween” made a killing in North America, earning $77.5 million when the slasher film launched in 3,928 locations.

David Gordon Green’s “Halloween,” a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, obliterated the franchise record opening of $26 million, previously held by the 2007 Rob Zombie reboot. “Halloween” also notched the second-best start for an R-rated horror film following “It’s” $123 million launch. It now ranks as the second-highest debut for an October release, set earlier this month by “Venom” with $80 million.

Overseas, “Halloween” generated $14.3 million from 23 markets for a global start of $91.8 million. “Halloween” cost just $10 million, marking another win for Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions, who co-financed the film with Miramax. “Halloween” surpassed “Paranormal Activity 3” ($52.5 million) for the best debut to date for Blumhouse.

“I am enormously proud of this film,” Blum said in a statement. “‘Halloween’ brings the franchise back to life in a fresh, relevant and fun way that
