Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have the potential to make Oscars history during the 2019 Academy Awards according to a popular Hollywood polling site for their smash movie A Star is Born.
The twosome is favorited to get nods for both Best Actor and Actress for the film, as well as Best Director for Cooper and Best Song for Gaga for either "I'll Never Love Again" or "Shallow."
In Academy history, according to Goldderby, there have only been seven occasions in Oscar history where the Best Actor and Best Actress awards have gone to a duo from the same movie.
Despite many actors and actresses from the same motion pictures being nominated, it is quite rare for both to score a golden statuette for their work in the same film. The site also predicts that Sam Elliot as Cooper's on-screen brother and foil Bobby Maine will also get a nod for Best Supporting Actor.
Goldderby noted that just two years ago, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were both nominated for La La Land. Stone won and Gosling lost to Casey Affleck for Manchester by the Sea.
The last time two actors from the same film won was in 1997 for the film As Good as it Gets. Both Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt won in their respective categories for that film.
