"Think about it, I felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part", he told Winfrey.

He recalled that he was in a coffee shop when a friend congratulated him for the nominations but left out the bad news. But the truth is, even if I got the nomination, that should not give me any sense of whether I did my job or not.

Liam Neeson Admits To Rape Revenge Fantasy
The day after the original interview was published, the 66-year-old went on Good Morning America to insist: "I'm not racist". There's a pause. "I asked, did she know who it was? No. 'What color were they?' She said it was a black person".

ET has learned that the "A Star Is Born" director will not be in attendance at the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, where his onscreen love, Lady Gaga, is expected to perform "Shallow", their now-iconic duet from the movie, which is nominated for both Song and Record of the Year at the show.

The movie is also nominated for best sound as well as best actress for Gaga (she's also sharing original music credits). "It was the best direction". He is up for three Oscars for A Star is Born, including nominations for best actor, best picture and best adapted screenplay alongside Eric Roth and Will Fetters. "It's just when I sing... like acting, I'm actually talking".
