Could Lady Gaga Score An Oscar For ‘A Star Is Born?’

Lady Gaga is already generating tons of Oscar buzz for her award-worthy performance in the yet-to-be-released film A Star is Born, the directorial debut of her co-star, actor Bradley Cooper.

Gaga portrays the role singer Barbra Streisand made famous in the hotly anticipated remake of the 1970s classic film.

Bradley Cooper stars as the singer’s love interest and leading man.

Critics who had an early screening of the film are raving over Gaga’s performance, calling it “Oscar-worthy” and “powerful.”

This is the fourth time the movie has been remade since the original film debuted in 1937.

The remakes included a 1954 musical, starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and a 1976 rock musical, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

A Star is Born was shot over 42 days and is set in the country-music world, depicting the romance between Bradley and Gaga’s characters, a washed-up alcoholic singer and a young, female aspiring musician.

During filming, the actors and singers performed at the Stagecoach Festival and at Glastonbury in front of 80,000 people to have authentic live footage for the film.

“Gaga is a revelation,” Bradley said at The Tribeca Film Festival, as reported by IndieWire.

“I relied on her. She said right from the beginning that this is going to be a barter: ‘I’m gonna rely on you to get a performance out of me, and I’m gonna make sure you’re going to be a real musician.’”

Gaga decided that she and Bradley should sing live and not rely on pre-recorded tracks.

“We’re going to sing everything live. The only way this is going to work is live. I can’t stand when I watch movies and you know its pre-recorded and I can see people lip-syncing.” said Bradley in the interview.

Film critics took to Twitter to share their feelings about their high expectations for the film.

“I mean, the trailer for A Star is Born just made me cry. Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours,” said one critic.

“First trailer for A Star Is Born gave me chills. Lady Gaga’s Hollywood moment is far from over. Music is phenomenal,” lauded one critic.

“Huge applause for the first trailer for A Star Is Born, which feels like it could definitely be an awards player. Both Cooper and Gaga look great in it. First fall-movie preview I’ve seen where awards will for sure be in the conversation,” said another.

A Star is Born will be released in theaters on October 5.
