Sunday night will be an Oscar ceremony unlike any that we have ever seen before. No host, non-actors as presenters, and negative feelings about the Academy’s attempts to shake up the ceremony will make for an interesting telecast. With that in mind, I have little doubt that my 2019 Oscar predictions could be wildly off.
I spent a lot of time in movie theaters in 2018. Whether it was Ocean’s 8 or A Star Is Born, there were a lot of movies that tried to tell memorable stories. Not every film succeeded. Many stood as platforms for terrific acting performances, but came up short as art and entertainment. All made for a great collective experience as a moviegoer.
The 2018 remake of A Star Is Born is defined by incredible talent. The artistry goes beyond the big screen, however, as A Star Is Born’s soundtrack boasts one of the best original music compilations for a film in recent memory.
A Star Is Born is the third remake of a premise that first made its way into movie theaters in 1937. Even though the film has already been tweaked for Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, the latest iteration proves how talent elevates a story. Stunning acting by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga keeps the 2018 cut of A Star Is Born relevant.
Warner Brothers released the trailer for the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga movie A Star Is Born yesterday. The film will be the third remake of a 1937’s A Star Is Born and is Cooper’s directorial debut. If the trailer is any indication, this will be an immensely popular movie that generates considerable Oscar buzz.
