There might be 99 trophies at the 76th annual Golden Globes, but at least one is Lady Gaga’s.
On Sunday, the singer snagged a Golden Globe with “Shallow” from the blockbuster hit A Star Is Born, beating out “All the Stars” from Black Panther, “Girl in the Movies” from Dumplin, “Revelation” from Boy Erased, and “Requiem for a Private War” from A Private War for Best Original Song. Gaga and the co-writers of “Shallow” came to the stage to accept the award from presenters Taylor Swift and Idris Elba. This is the T. Swift/Gaga collaboration we want to see!
“As a woman in music, it’s really hard to be taken seriously as a musician, and as a songwriter,” Gaga said onstage. She was visibly on the verge of tears the entire time. “These three incredible men Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, they lifted me up, they supported me. Thank you also to Ben Rice for working on this song with us, we love you, and Bradley I love you,” she said as they played her off stage, one of the most public displays of homophobia in the last hour.
Gaga said the song was mixed a whopping 18 times but the writers put most of the credit of the project’s success at Gaga’s feet. Understandable! Ronson did give Bradley Cooper a bit of shine though.
“Thank you, Bradley Cooper,” Ronson said. “You took our heartfelt, honest tune and you gave it emotional resonance.”
Here’s to Mother Monster (ok fine, Cooper too), and her next Golden Globe coming in 3, 2, 1 ...
