Lady Gaga could win an Oscar

Bradley Cooper is a very smart man. Most directors would be wary of yet another remake of this story. In fact, after Barbra Streisand’s last joke of film, the idea should have been dead in the water, never to take another breath. But Bradley breathed life back into it, and brought it back to the silver screen.

His genius was hiring Lady Gaga to play Ally opposite his Jack. She makes this movie feel authentic, and she can certainly sing.

 

I suppose we should not have been surprised, since Gaga’s stage productions and videos are all about performance art. But she is stripped down (sometimes literally) and (emotionally) vulnerable in a way that is almost shocking, at least to me.

When Oscar time rolls this way again, I believe Lady Gaga has a definite chance at the Best Actress award. Let’s see if I’m right.
