Stone played herself in La La Land, which has been the main complaint regarding Gaga’s performance in A Star Is Born. The only major difference between their performances is the singing in their musical numbers. Stone’s singing was widely panned, meanwhile Gaga’s vocal chops… they speak for themselves. So why the vitriol for Gaga and not Stone?
Because Stone was better than Gaga in everything but singing. And we’re talking about a Best Actress award. Stone’s performance didn’t rely on her voice, while Gaga’s only noteworthy moments were by far the singing scenes.January 16, 2019 at 10:03 am #1202736390
I still don´t get the purpose on agreeing which one is the bigger hit.24K Magic and That´s What I Like were not the biggest hit and it won so I don´t get your point. Also,All The Stars is not even the second or third biggest hit of the category so following your logic the song doesn´t stand a chance.
This discussion happened because many people keep saying Shallow is going to win because it’s the bigger hit compared to ATS, as if this was between the two of them. But Shallow isn’t the frontrunner because of that(and that’s not even true). And anyway, if the biggest hit wins, God’s Plan is the answer. Even The Middle is probably a bigger hit than ATS and Shallow, so it doesn’t really matter.January 16, 2019 at 9:58 am #1202736380
http://hitsdailydouble.com/news&id=314841&title=GRAMMY-PERFORMANCES%3A-THE-CONUNDRUM Lenny Beer’s repeated insistence that “snubbing” the likes of Ariana, Camila Cabello, and Taylor Swift (with her least liked, least successful album) is on par with what happened to Ed Sheeran and Justin Timberlake is the height of delusion. It’s actually a bit annoying, especially since he routinely shits on people like Janelle, Kacey, Brandi, and H.E.R., dismissing them as simple committee puts who have no business being there.
He really wants the Grammys to be a VMA 2.0January 16, 2019 at 9:51 am #1202736365
Grammys don’t predict the future and they tend to choose bigger hits. We all predict Shallow to beat ATS because of 1) timing 2) the style of the song.
If they were both “conservative” songs and Shallow wasn’t winning the “Best Song” awards in every Oscar precursor, ATS would easily beat it, because Shallow is barely a hit. And even if Shallow ends up being bigger in the future, it’s thanks to the awards it will win, something ATS didn’t rely on, because it was released much earlier. Saying ‘Shallow is a bigger hit than All The Stars in the US‘ is a lie.

The songs that Gaga wrote for her character and performs as said character absolutely lend themselves to her performance as a whole. It is almost comical to assume otherwise. Let’s get serious, folks. Had Glenn’s movie been long forgotten, which many thought it would be, Gaga would be winning in a televised awards landslide. If Emma Stone could do it, so could Gaga.
As if Gaga was as good as, or better than Emma Stone. I have to laugh.
It’s funny how Gaga supporters have to use her singing, her songwriting, her public persona and many other things to say her overall performance was amazing. It’s like the performance isn’t particularly great by itself. Oh, wait…January 16, 2019 at 6:23 am #1202736139
Y’all are delusional to think that anyone other than Gaga could have pulled off the Ally role we’ve all watched. A Star is Born, other than Cooper’s efforts, is a result of Gaga’s talent: her songwriting and her vocal talent. If Demi Lovato, Rihanna, or Beyonce was cast, this would be an entirely different film, and who knows — maybe a bad one. You can have (a wrong) opinion that her performance was mediocre, but to pretend that any other actress could have did this — I have to laugh. Beat it, budget james charles
Anyone could have done this. If it was an actress, she obviously would have a more natural and strong performance(which is not hard, because Gaga’s performance is clearly the one of a newbie, her body language and facial expressions are stiff and don’t tell me it’s intentional because the character is shy: she was even worse in AHS). The singing wouldn’t be so strong, but it just needed to be okay because she wasn’t a singer in real life.
If it was a singer, she just needed the vocals to be just as good or better than Gaga. The rest of the performance would be just as “good”.
It’s funny how you guys keep trying to use the songwriting argument as if this was really needed for the movie to work. First, this doesn’t add anything to Gaga’s performance. Second, she didn’t write any song alone, so we’ll never know how much of it she actually wrote by herself.

It’s always funny how people claim Gaga played herself, because Ally is a female singer. Can we also claim that Glenn is playing herself because she’s a wife too?
Gaga IS playing herself, not because she’s a singer, but because all the “struggles” of the character are exactly the ones she faced 12-ish years ago when she was trying to become famous. The character was written specifically for her, with the big nose thing, “I’m too ugly to be an artist”, songwriter, blah, blah, blah. Everything to make it easier. And still, her performance when she’s not singing is basic af. And that’s the real criticism, not the fact that she played herself alone.January 15, 2019 at 7:05 pm #1202735794
She’s a “pop-star”, but she doesn’t make pop music. She definitely does not belong to be nominated within the pop field.
That’s not what I implied. I was trying to say that the fact that she has 22 Grammys while her contemporaries(Avril, J-Lo, Britney, P!nk, Clarkson, Aguilera) have 0 to 5 is obviously because of that. She’d probably have more Grammys than them anyway(she has more longevity, arguably more talent and star power), but far from 22.January 15, 2019 at 5:44 pm #1202735765
Well everything is possible.I doubted her with ASIB and look where she is now
The thing is, ASIB is the fourth remake of a movie that was always considered for Oscars, even when it was critically panned. Everyone expected this to be a failure because both the director and leading actress were unexperienced. But it always had the “brand”.January 15, 2019 at 4:31 pm #1202735716
Well either Angelina plays it or Gaga competes again with Glenn, that´s obvious I don´t get the purpose of your post tbh but ok you are right
I think he means that Gaga isn’t going to get nominated for an Oscar for anything she does. But that’s obvious for everyone but Meryl Streep.January 15, 2019 at 4:28 pm #1202735710
I have mixed feelings about Roma, for once is in my opinion the best film of the year, on the hand a triumph of Roma represent the triumph of the Netflix model. Cinema belong to theater. I love Roma, i love movie experience a lot more. To those who call Roma boring i dare them to take a deep watch to Boyhood
But the Netflix factor actually kind of helps it. Because it would be unprecedent, something groundbreaking, etc. Obviously, it wouldn’t happen again so soon.
