Lady Gaga’s ‘greatest gift’
“A Star Is Born” actress and pop singer Lady Gaga, nominated for Oscars in both the best actress and best song categories for the film remake, elaborated on how overwhelmed she felt about being noticed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
“I am so humbled and proud to be nominated for two Academy Awards,” wrote the performer in her Instagram story. “There really is no greater honor,” Gaga said, thanking her costars and “Shallow” cowriters.
“Bradley (Cooper) had such a precise vision and perspective, and he created a true family,” she added. “The greatest gift has been how the film has resonated with so many people on so many levels … I’m still in shock.”
A few weeks ago, she and Glenn Close tied for best actress in the Critics’ Choice Awards. The latter won for her performance in “The Wife.”
“Shallow,” Gaga’s duet with Cooper, won a Golden Globe for original song last month.
Cooper is nominated in the Oscars’ best actor category, and “A Star Is Born” is nominated for best picture. —OLIVER PULUMBARIT
