Cooper opened up about this experience, magically conjuring an orchestra of the world's tiniest violins, on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square.

However, Cooper told Winfrey that while having coffee in NY, a friend texted him congratulations about the nominations (the movie bagged seven in total), but did not tell him "the bad news" that he was not part of the Oscars Best Director nominees.

The filmmaker doesn't have any regrets about directing the movie, however, adding, "But the truth is, even if I got the nomination, that should not give me any sense of whether I did my job or not".

He continued: "I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn't done my job". Cooper, Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott received nods for Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor, respectively.

A Star Is Born is bound for Oscars glory after landing a whopping eight Academy Awards nominations.

Winfrey did her best to comfort the star, revealing that she would also be "feeling some kind of way about it" had she been in his position.

'I know that he's so happy that we've all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition'.
