A Star Is Born - Winner's Acceptance Speech, Original Music, EE British Academy Film Awards in 2019

10 February 2019

Winner's acceptance speech by Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born in the Original Music category


Well, I got to fulfil a dream that I never thought would ever happen, to compose and arrange music, and I got to do it with the greatest musicians in the world, Lady Gaga and Lukas Nelson, who I share this with tonight.  

This music was the heartbeat of this film and we had so much help from people all over the country, Brandi Carlile, Mark Ronson, Hillary Lindsey, Jason Ruder and the whole sound team, Steve Morrow, Alan Murray.  It wouldn't have sounded like that without you.  Ben Rice, the Village Studios in Santa Monica, the engineers.  

Most of all I have to thank Irina for putting up with me, for all the music I was trying to make in our basement for a year.  

Thank you very much.  Thank you.
