Bradley Cooper will make his directorial debut but the real question is whether a screen star can be born out of Lady Gaga. The singer has been in a few bad action movies, like Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Twitter scoffed after her Golden Globe win for American Horror Story: Hotel. We think she’s a pretentious actress but we think she’s perfect for this role in this era. She is a new generation’s Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland. This movie obviously wants to be an awards contender. Every re-make of the musical has been given nominations from the Academy and I’m sure Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are expecting the same. We don’t expect Bradley Cooper to get a nod for directing but maybe, just maybe, Gaga can get a Best Actress nod after getting snubbed this year for Best Original Song. We still think this could end horribly, but it’s not stupid to say this could be a critical darling and awards contender.
