They had one job. Okay, they had multiple jobs. But in this particular scene, Lady Gaga and Anthony Ramos, playing the roles of Ally and Ramon in the already iconic remake of A Star Is Born, had one job. That job was to not pop the champagne bottle. Anyone who has scene the movie knows… they failed.
In the first hour of the story, country star Jackson Maine, dazzlingly played by Bradley Cooper, has fallen hard for Ally and he sends a private plane to pick her up and fly her to the gig he’s performing at. She brings her friend Ramon along, and the two, overwhelmed by the lap of luxury, board the aircraft. Quickly they bounce all over the plane, which had been rented for the shoot. The champagne bottle in question was supplied by the company that owned the aircraft and the cast and crew was warned… don’t touch it.
But according to Anthony Ramos…
“Stefani and I were bugging out.”
Soon the bubbles were flowing.
“That reaction was a real reaction. We’re like, ‘Oh shit, we popped the bottle in this jet.’ You could just see the dude that was actually the captain of the plane was just like [Ramos shakes his head]. I felt so bad, but it was such a good moment, man. After we cut it, I was like, ‘Yo, I hope they keep that because we didn’t pop the bottle in the other takes.'”
Luckily, it made for a great shot.
People have been living for this movie all weekend…

People lived for the performances…
Just came back from seeing A Star Is Born.
Bradley Cooper might just be the greatest actor of our generation.
Lady Gaga brought perfection and one of the most beloved portrayals in history to the screen.
Give them their Oscars and Grammys now.
It’s THAT good. pic.twitter.com/CfoDcTGVQ2

Before I saw A Star Is Born, I felt certain Lady Gaga was going to win an Oscar. I could not have been more wrong, she’s gonna win two.

Cried like a baby watching A Star Is Born, it’s such a beautiful amazing movie! The chemistry between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper is probably the best I’ve ever seen!

And people were casually tossing around words like ‘Oscars’…
A Star Is Born is good enough to sweep the top categories at the Oscars

A Star Is Born deserves a fucking Oscar and I’ll riot if it doesn’t get one

A STAR IS BORN may have finished #2 in this weekend’s box office derby but my sources in Tinseltown tell me that Cooper’s playing the long game here: as wild a ride as VENOM was, that’s not the flick Oscar voters will be showering with prizes this February. They’re going Gaga

I’m calling it, both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper WILL win an Oscar for best actress and best actor for A Star Is Born.
The acting, the songs- the fact Mr Cooper directed it. It’s one of the best films I’ve seen in a long while. I loved every minute! pic.twitter.com/Ja7DfIuIr3

if gaga doesn’t win an oscar for her performance in a star is born then I’ll know I’m living in a simulation
— (@nicolejscammer) October 8, 2018
A STAR IS BORN (2018, Cooper, ***1/2) Yeah, so this is gonna make a bazillion dollars and win all the Oscars and I’m totally cool with that. Wept buckets.

A Star Is Born is currently playing in theaters. Go see it! Now! Yes, it is that good.
