With so many winners and ecstatic recipients of an award at the Golden Globes, there has to be a big loser that skulks off with their pockets empty.
This award goes to Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born, which managed to lose out in all the categories it was nominated in, except for Shallow which scooped ‘original song’.
There were thoughts that Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were going to sweep aside all those in their way, as their movie wracked up a host of nominations.
It soon became apparent that 32-year-old Gaga was going to be the triumphant from the movie’s team as director Cooper was beaten by Alfonso Cuaron to Best Director for his acclaimed piece, Roma.
Gaga and Cooper then missed out in their Best Actress and Best Actor categories, respectively, with Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody topping off a miserable night for A Star Is Born by beating it to the Best Motion Picture prize.
Bohemian Rhapsody also had a hand in stopping Bradley Cooper scooping the best actor award, with Rami Malek’s portrayal of Queen front man Freddie Mercury, being declared the winner.
These decisions did not sit well with Lady Gaga’s legions of fans. They had thought she was a ‘shoe-in’ for more than just ‘best song’ and have threatened to rebel take direct action if such a snub was repeated at the Oscars.
As the results were announced, Gaga fans took to social media in their droves to call out those who voted against the movie, giving more than a hint as to what their feelings were about this.
One annoyed fan tweeted: "A Star Is Born was snubbed too hard tonight. It’s easily the most acclaimed film of the year and was ignored."
While another questioned whether Bohemian Rhapsody was good enough to win: "A Star is Born was snubbed in the last category. There’s nothing else to be said. Bohemian Rhapsody was a beautiful film, don’t get get me wrong, but not Best Picture."
A third queried the win that Lady Gaga had for Amerian Horror Story compared to her role this time around, tweeting: "Funny how the Golden Globes snubbed Lady Gaga of her well-deserved Best Actress Award for A Star is Born yet they gave her that truly undeserving award for American Horror Story Hotel years ago."
What was clear among the unhappy Gaga followers, was that a repeat of this snub at the Oscars would lead them to ‘threaten to riot’.
So, all eyes will be on Lady Gaga at the Academy Awards to see if she gets what her fans believe are her dues for an acclaimed performance.
