It’s clear that history has repeated itself in the collaboration of Gaga and Cooper.
A Star is Born is a love story of the ups and downs of love as well as fame. Lady Gaga plays Ally, an upcoming artist who falls in love with an established singer Jackson Maine (Cooper) when his career is spiraling downwards. On the other hand, her star grows. Gaga and Cooper have been nominated for Best Actress and Actor alike. The film has also been nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. Other nominations include Best Cinematography as well as Best Sound Mixing.
Shallow, a song that Gaga plays in the movie has been nominated for several 2019 Grammy Awards. It’s also been nominated for best overall music track and Song of the Year. This focuses on songwriting. Gaga called in a counterculture in many ways. She added that even though the song didn’t fit into the perfect parameters of a commercial track, fans are still connecting with the music, which meant a lot to the artists.
For Heather Parry the executive producer, this movie has represented a vital move into scripted films as well as a natural progression into the television industry after releasing smaller projects with a budget of under $5 million. Such documentaries regarding artists in music embark on their journeys.
Heather Parry also adds that it’s invaluable to take such risks in a movie that highlights the personality of an actor. She adds that A Star is Born entailed risk-taking. When she heard that Bradley Cooper would play a role in the movie, she knew that he would do a great job. She then requested to be part of it. Other movies she has produced include Believer, the Imagine Dragons documentary and Five Foot Two, a documentary for Lady Gaga.
