Have only seen Bradley's performance so far but he was exceptional! Am interested to see Dafoe's performance...

I loved A Star is Born, don't get me wrong. I gave it a 9. But I'm not surprised a bit by how good Cooper, Gaga or Elliott were... yes, they are all talented are right, but you can tell this is a film directed by an actor, he gave every character at least four or five "juicy" scene: the scene where the actor cries, the scene where he/she gets angry, the anger scene, the silent stares, the musical performance, the drunk scene, the funny scene, the love scene, it's a terrific film but a real "acting Oscar" bait. Cooper knew what he was doing, even in the few scenes Elliott had, his voice broke two times and he had to shed a few tears...

Definitely, I think his role specifically was his way of showing the Academy (or anyone who ever doubted him) his acting chops ... but honestly, I give him so much credit for making what many are saying to be the best Star is Born yet. I gave it a 9 as well - the music and acting totally exceeded my expectations but I can see how you would see the 'baity' nature of it.

I think there's always something 'baity' in excellence, being a teacher for a few months, I know that there's always an expectancy of reward behind a good work.

Still, I was impressed by Cooper's job but wasn't sure about his nomination chances, then came the infamous "incident" and the "I'm sorry" scene, I knew he could expect that nomination. Not saying he made this film solely for the rewards but he knew what he was doing. I think I most appreciate his directing job because it wasn't too flashy and exuberant (he wasn't trying to imitate Scorsese etc.) yet it was remarkable in a general way. 

Of course, it's easier when you have good material to work on, the story of "A Star is Born" calls for a remake every generation and it was the smartest move for a directing debut to work on a story with a timeless appeal and have a talented and popular actress (who proved she could act) as the lead singer. I don't know whether it was Cooper or Gaga who drew the audiences before the positive word-of-mouth started, but the strategy sure paid off.

Cooper and Washington would be extremely undeserving.
Dafoe would be wonderful.
But I'll be cheering for Malek all the way.
