The 2018 remake of A Star is Born is a surprise to many, but intriguing with Bradley Cooper taking the director’s seat for the first time and Lady Gaga in her first leading role in a feature film.

This is the fifth film adaptation of A Star is Born but this adaptation stands on its own due to the creative, modernized changes showing the current state of the music industry, shining a light on depression and its effects. The movie features original songs written and performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Gaga’s powerful voice amplifies the emotional scenes and Cooper displays an impressive vocal talent.

The film has gotten praise from audiences and film critics. The film is nominated for four Golden Globes for Best Actor, Best Motion Picture, Best Director and Best Actress for Lady Gaga’s performance. The film also received five Grammy nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop/Duo Group Performance and Best Song written for visual media.

A Star is Born is an unexpected remake that was made during a time when remakes aren’t memorable as compared to predecessors, but this film stands out and makes its mark.
