But it wasn’t meant to be. Neither Cooper nor his star, Lady Gaga, prevailed in their respective categories Sunday night, and “A Star Is Born” was kissed off with an entirely predictable song award for its signature tune, “Shallow.” And speaking of shallow, the top film prizes went to “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a dumb-and-dumber cinematic combo that feels like a blight even on the Globes’ long and frequently inglorious history. Has the HFPA ever served up a more embarrassingly retrograde pair of winners in the same evening than these two, a more bumbling double dose of cinematic mediocrity? After a few minutes scanning Wikipedia, I feel fairly confident in saying no.
