And 8 overall, not 10. Not that wild for a prolific, well-liked, multi-talented figure in the industry. Also slightly odd to say it’s white privilege then name 3 other white actors as examples of people who haven’t had as many noms. Clearly are systemic issues in the Academy and the industry limiting the capacity of non-white actors and producers being able to tell stories and receive major roles, but I don’t see how Cooper is relevant to that and needs to be brought into the discussion.
A “just fine” actor like Bradley Cooper has 4 acting nominations (two of which absolutely undeserved for mediocre/bad performances), thus the same amount of noms superior actors such as Joaquin Phoenix, Christian Bale, and even Brad Pitt have.
If that doesn’t bother you, or seem weird to you, or doesn’t illustrate you just a shining example of white male mediocrity being over rewarded in Hollywood , then I don’t know what the hell to tell you.June 22, 2021 at 6:16 pm #1204313564This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 22, 2021 at 6:27 pm #1204313574
Dude, it’s just your opinion that Phoenix, Bale, and Pitt are superior actors. AMPAS votes for what it likes. Also there are thousands of white male actors in Hollywood and very few of them have 4 acting nominations like Cooper. Seems like he didn’t get those nominations just for being white.
Cooper gets nominated constantly because he always teams up with Academy darlings and gives baity performances which are in their wheelhouse. It’s inevetable that he will win an Oscar sooner rather than later. Personally I don’t think that will happen this year even though he may snag two nominations. I have more hope with his role in Maestro.June 22, 2021 at 6:46 pm #1204313592
Or being nominated for oscar over another deserving performers:
I’ll never forget this performance getting a nomination over Steven Yeun in Burning.

I have a weird feeling that Focus is going to “Judas” both of Soho ladies by frauding both of them into supporting since race in Supporting is less competitive than Lead (not weak by any means)June 22, 2021 at 9:41 pm #1204313787

The Academy put LaKeith in Supporting on their own. He was always campaigned in Lead.

Exactly. Cooper is an anomaly primarily due to his association with David’ o Russell and choosing the right projects. If you want to make disingenuous arguments like white privilege, you have to back it up as well. If it was white privilege, how does he have zero Oscars and Mahershala Ali have two? It’s more to do with the project that you are attached to.
I agree that the industry has got a lotttt to do in terms of bringing people of colour to at least an equal footing, but stop with this narrative of “white privilege” just because you don’t like Cooper. It does no good in furthering the argument of the importance of equity.
