In an interview with Anthony Ramos for Interview Magazine, Bradley Cooper opened up about his thoughts on the awards season while speaking with his A Star Is Born co-actor. During the interview, talking about the awards season, Anthony Ramos said, “It’s funny, you hit awards season and it can be easy for us to make it about individual people. But on set, you have your call sheet, and even though you have your leads, it’s a team effort. The grips, the director of photography—that movie is not happening without them. Everyone is the star of that movie.”

The A Star is Born actor said, “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.” Cooper mentioned that the awards season is a real test and added that it’s completely devoid of artistic creation. The actor continued, “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.’”
Bradley Cooper opened up about his thoughts on the awards season and further added, “It’s ultimately a great thing because it really does make you face ego, vanity, and insecurity. It’s very interesting and utterly meaningless.” The actor mentioned that the awards season is a great thing ultimately because it really does make one face ego, vanity and insecurity, but continued to share that it’s also very interesting and then called it ‘utterly meaningless’.
