LADY GAGA DIDN'T GET THE OSCAR!!!— Carly (@PuckingRockets) February 25, 2019
Though she did not win the statuette for her acting role, Gaga still had a big night on Oscars Sunday as she took the stage alongside co-star Bradley Cooper to perform their hit song "Shallow" from the film.
Gaga also celebrated a big win during the awards ceremony when the song was awarded the big prize for Best Original Song, winning the big prize alongside song co-writers, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.0comments
"I really loved that song when she had first played it for me and it was just finding out the best way to utilize in the movie," Cooper told MTV International of first hearing the song during production of the film, "and then the idea of maybe making it a duet instead, having it be the first time he hears her sing a song that she's written on the spot. So it really ended up being an anchor for the whole movie."
A Star is Born is now available for purchase on Blu-ray and Digital download.
