Simon Cowell is reportedly livid that One Direction weren’t nominated for an Oscar this year.
The boys have won American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, Brit Awards, Kids Choice Awards and just last week Harry Styles picked up yet another NME award (though it may not have been one he wanted), however none of this is enough for their boss man it seems.
The music mogul apparently expected the band’s movie This is Us – which was made up of footage of Harry, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik as they toured the world with their Take Me Home shows – to be at least nominated, after it broke box office records around the globe, however the film failed to receive even a nod.
Simon has also pinned his hopes on Best Song Ever being nominated for Best Original Song from a movie but the track wasn’t even named in the 75 song long shortlist that was put forward.
A source told The Mirror:
“Simon is disappointed. Some of the tracks on the list are virtually unknown.”
The Oscars take place in Hollywood tonight.
Meanwhile, something that didn’t make it into This Is Us is the crazy parties that went on backstage on the One Direction tour, but according to Harry they most definitely took place.
The Little Things singer has admitted that he loved watching his team and crew getting ‘wasted’ after the concerts, though the hunk insists he abstained, because he’s too young to drink in the States.
The legal age for drinking in most states is 21, and Haz is only 20. He told Fabulous magazine that there was one crazy night in particular that he remembers, when the band treated their crew by hiring out an entire bar and throwing a massive party.
‘It was amazing – seeing all the crew get wasted and having fun was brilliant. That night was a 5 or 6am-er,’ he said.
‘But obviously I wasn’t drinking.’
Harry is currently in LA taking it easy and over the last week he’s been spotted at no less than two Kodaline gigs…he must be a huge fan.
The star has been meeting with fans and Directioners during his stay and one claims that the 1D star ran through four lanes of traffic yesterday, just to sign some autographs at the other side of the road.
