The smash hit “Shallow” by A Star Is Born has not only honored the charts, but also received some of the biggest awards in the industry.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper can add a Grammy to the ever-growing Trophy Cabinet after winning the Best Pop Duo / Group award
When Gaga accepted the prize, barely able to ward off tears, she took the moment to convey an important message about mental health.
She told the crowd, “I’m so proud to be part of a movie that deals with mental health issues, they are so important.
“And many artists are involved with it, and we have to be careful.
“So if you see someone who hurts, do not look away.
“And if it hurts, even though it may be hard, try to find that bravery in yourself, dive deep and tell someone and take him in your head.”
It is an inspirational message that formed the core of the film. Bradley Cooper’s character kills in the end.
The film shows how Jackson’s thoughts continue to grow into depression and self-hatred, as well as the effects that suicide can have on friends and family. Undoubtedly, the Gaga message will be true for many people around the world.
Gaga had spent the night after winning not only a Grammy for ‘Shallow’ but also one for her album Joanne for Best Solo Pop Performance.
She wrote on Twitter: “I will not be able to wear makeup tonight, we just won our first Grammy nomination for the night.
“I’m in tears of honor and gratitude, thanks, @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-authors and Bradley, I love you so much, thanks.”
And if that was not good enough, A Star Is Born won the BAFTA for Best Original Music.
The award was specifically given to Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Lukas Nelson, who defeated Terence Blanchard of BlacKKKKlansman, Nicholas Britell of Beale Street Could Talk, Alexandre Desplat of Isle of Dogs and Marc Shaiman of Mary Poppins Returns.
“Shallow” has been nominated for four Grammys, including “Record of the Year”, “Song of the Year” and “Best Song for Visual Media”.
It has also won the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Movie Awards and Satellite Awards. All eyes will be on the Oscars to see if she can win other big prizes.
We can imagine the party going wild in Camp Gaga tonight. Well done.
