Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were presented with a scenario no less dilemma-infused than Sophie's Choice. With the BAFTAs and the Grammys happening pretty much on the same night in two different countries, they had to pick one. At the BAFTAs, Lady Gaga has been nominated as Best Actress for her role in Bradley Cooper directorial, A Star is Born. At the Grammys, her song, titled 'Shallow', from the same film has been nominated in three categories - Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media. Not just that her song Joanne, from her fifth studio album, has been nominated in the Best Pop Solo Performance category.
Well, Lady Gaga has made the decision and picked one of two glitzy affairs. If you placed your bets on Gaga attending the Grammys, you have won. As per a report by Daily Mail, the singer/actress will be snubbing the BAFTAs taking place in Sunday, for Grammys happening the next day as per IST.
We would have loved to see her attend both ceremonies. But some things are impossible for even Lady Gaga. She has already won accolades for her performance in A Star is Born. She bagged the Best Actress prize at the National Board of Review Awards. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Surprise Audience with First LIVE Performance of Shallow from A Star Is Born - Watch Video.
On the other hand, Bradley Cooper will be attending the BAFTAs giving Grammys a miss. He is nominated for Best Actor and Best Director at the former, while he has been nominated in several musical categories at the latter. This sure sounds like a joint decision between the two colleagues of A Star is Born. But don't you worry. We will get to see them on the same stage at the upcoming Academy Awards, where they will be performing their song, 'Shallow', live in front of the audience.
