Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga stole the Oscars last night with their performance of Shallow from their movie, A Star Is Born.
The two ended up also taking home the award for Best Original Song, which was handed out just a short while after their performance received a standing ovation.
Here’s what standing ovation looked like inside Dolby for @ladygaga and Bradley Cooper after their “Shallow” #Oscars performance. Irina Shayk was first up out of her seat. Before Bradley walked up to perform, Jennifer Lopez patted him on back to encourage him. Super sweet pic.twitter.com/eF69IOYToY

Even though last night marked Lady Gaga’s first Oscar win, the song has actually already earned a few awards.
It also won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song in 2019 and won the award for Original Music at the BAFTA Film Awards. Along with the success of the song, A Star Is Born also won the AFI Award for Movie of the Year, and won the AAFCA Award in the Top 10 Films category.
Lady Gaga herself won the AFCC Special Award for Breakthrough Performer at the Atlanta Film Critics Circle. The movie has won several other awards both for the acting and music.
