A Star Is Born ... literally. Because Lady Gaga took home a Golden Globe for her hit song, "Shallow," from A Star Is Born. The award was presented to her and Mark Ronson by Idris Elba and Taylor Swift.
"Shallow," with music and lyrics by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, won the award for Best Song In A Motion Picture. Taking the stage to accept the award was Lady G and Ronson, with Mark saying, "You took a heartfelt honest tune and you gave it emotional resonance that we could've only dreamed of." He added, "Seriously, the way you weaved the lyrics into the film and the narrative of your beautiful heartbreaking film is why we're standing up here tonight, I believe."
Gaga was visibly emotional while learning of the Golden Globe win as she shed a few tears while still in her seat.
This isn't Lady Gaga's first Golden Globe win. In 2016, she won an award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Television Film for her role in American Horror Story: Hotel.
This year, Lady Gaga was also nominated for Best Actress In A Motion Picture Drama, while A Star Is Born scored several Golden Globe nominations including for Best Motion Picture - Drama and more. The movie's Bradley Cooper was also nominated for Best Director and Best Actor in a Motion Picture.
Earlier in the night on the red carpet, Gaga opened up to Ryan Seacrest about working with Bradley Cooper on set during A Star Is Born and how he helped her. She told Seacrest, "My very first scene with Bradley, I was in my head. Something was going on. [After I said my line,] he said something back to me that wasn't the line I thought was he was going to say, and I just said my same line again. Then he said something else, and I just said the same line again."
She added, "I started crying, I couldn't let it go. The scene happened as written, and it happened in a much more organic way. Bradley taught me how to be present, had to work really hard to be this character. She’s nothing like me."
