Bradley Cooper may not have gotten an Oscar nom for Best Director for A Star Is Born, but there’s another awards organization recognizing him for his directorial debut: PETA’s Oscat.
Yes, you read that correctly. We’re talking about the animal rights group PETA, who (believe it or not) has a film and TV division that awards films and stars who promote animals through story lines and live imagery.
So you might be asking yourself, why did Bradley Cooper get recognized and what did he win? On Tuesday, the organization released its second annual awards, and Cooper took home the award for Best Director.
“For his enlightened decision to cast his own canine companion in A Star Is Born, rather than using one supplied by a notorious animal exhibitor,” PETA released in a statement.
