Although Bradley Cooper and his latest film A Star Is Born swept up several Oscar noms, the actor's directorial debut was overlooked in the category of Best Director - a snub that left Cooper fans outraged.

The actor has since broken his silence on the snub, saying that he was "embarrassed" and felt like he "hadn't done" his job.

"I was embarrassed. I was at a coffee shop in New York City and looked down at my phone and Nicole [Caruso, his publicist] has told me congratulations and said what we had been nominated for", Cooper recalled. But the truth is, even if I got the nomination, that should not give me any sense of whether I did my job or not.

The 32-year-old entertainer is nominated for five awards, four of them for her A Star Is Born song "Shallow".

In the preview, Cooper tells Oprah: "The first thing I felt was embarrassment actually". "But it's amusing you ask this, because I've thought about this".
