Congrats are in order for Lady Gaga as she took home a coveted Grammy award for “Shallow.” She said she wished Bradley Cooper could’ve been there to celebrate the big award, but he was busy at the BAFTA awards in England. However, these A Star Is Born co-stars are definitely rooting for each other from afar.
The powerful ballad won for Best Song Written For Visual Media and Best Pop Duo. “Shallow” is also nominated for Song of the Year and Record of the Year. In addition, the 32-year-old won Best Pop Solo Performance for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?).” Overall, it’s been a hugely successful year for the songstress.
“I know he wants to be here. Bradley, I loved singing this song with you,” the blonde bombshell said during her acceptance speech. “If I don’t get a chance to say this, I just want to say, I’m so proud to be part of a movie that addresses mental health issues. That’s so important.”
The “Born This Way” singer has been gushing about the 44-year-old director all award season long. “At the end of the day, he knows that he’s the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “I know that he’s so happy that we’ve all been nominated and that the film was recognized and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition.”
The American Sniper actor is just as thankful. “Everyone who worked on this film truly risked putting themselves out there — in the hope that in doing so people will connect and feel something deep and personal — the way films have made me feel since I was a kid,” he said in a statement. “When I got this opportunity I knew I had to risk it all because I may never get another chance — so to be here today in a place where people who have seen the film are talking about how it makes them feel, something deep — that simple human thing — that we need each other — and the Academy to recognize that this morning — I just am so grateful.”
