Lady Gaga was positively overwhelmed by her her nominations at the Academy Awards.
The singer and actress is up for Actress in a Leading Role for ‘A star is Born’ and Best Original Song for ‘Shallow’, a song she produced for the same movie.
Lady Gaga had not set an alarm for 5.30 am when the nominations were announced on Tuesday (22.01.19), so it was down to her manager to break the news she’d been shortlisted for both the Actress in a Leading Role for ‘A Star is Born’ and Best Original Song for ‘Shallow’ once she’d woken woken up.
Gaga – who is in Los Angeles for a brief break before her Las Vegas residency resumes – told the New York Times newspaper: ”I’ve been trying to get some sleep because I’m on showbiz time.
”I woke up around 8:30 and I didn’t know anything about it. My manager told me and I just burst into tears.”
Gaga is the first person to be nominated for the two Academy Awards in the same year and she’s very proud of her achievement.
She said: ”To be recognized as the lead actress and a musician at the same time, I can’t tell you what that means to me.”
