It was news that left the whole world shocked ...

That despite receiving SEVEN Academy Award nominations, Bradley Cooper missed out on a Best Director nod for his directional debut on A Star Is Born.

And the 44-year-old actor has since revealed he was left feeling "embarrassed" by the snub.

Speaking at Oprah Winfrey’s SuperSoul Conversations yesterday, he confessed: "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."

"They didn’t even give me the bad news."

"I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn’t done my job."

Previously his co-star, Lady Gaga, spoke out about how she felt when she heard Bradley hadn't received the nomination he deserved.

"Well, you know, you never know what's going to happen. At the end of the day, he knows that he's the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast. I know that's he so happy that we've all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition."

The revelation comes following the news the Hangover star will make his award show singing debut at the Oscars ceremony on February 24 when he takes to the stage with Lady Gaga to perform the Best Original Song-nominated single, 'Shallow'.
