Will 'A Star Is Born' Dominate The 2019 Oscars?

What most saw impossible, Bradley Cooper took the chance in recreating a timeless classic "A Star Is Born." Modernizing a 1976 movie can be difficult and challenging but Cooper was up for the task.

Now, the movie hasn't been released yet but the Oscar buzz surrounding it is huge. It just debuted this past weekend at the Venice film festival where critics ate it up and gave it a shiny 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's chemistry at the Venice festival was off the charts and now we want them to be a real couple. Lady Gaga making her first movie debut has also made the buzz of this movie even bigger. Will her acting career live up to her singing career?

Entertainment Weekly just released a sneak peek of an intimate scene between Jackson and Ally. Also released was never before seen shots that give you a little insight into how beautiful the cinematography is.

Cooper is reportedly "that good" as Jackson Maine, while Gaga is "sensational" and an "absolute natural." Could Gaga get her first acting nomination for her first film? Many critics have said yes but only the movie goers will tell once it comes out October 5, 2018.

Not only is the acting being praised, the workers behind the camera are getting the recognition they deserve. Cinematography, editing, sound mixing, and costume design are all open to debate for taking home an award.

We haven't even talked about the soundtrack if Warner Brothers decide to push for all categories the soundtrack could be taking more than one award home. Cooper could expect more than one nomination for his work on the movie.

Kristopher Tapley from Variety says this movie "has the muscle to achieve what only three films in movie history ever have: Win all five major Academy Awards (picture, director, actress, and screenplay)."

Will they be able to take all major awards (picture, director, actor, actress, and screenplay) home?

Is it an Academy Award worthy? Let me know your thoughts and predictions in the comments!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
