Little Monsters are about to declare December 6th a national holiday. With today’s Golden Globe announcement, Lady Gaga scored two huge nominations thanks to her role in A Star Is Born, with the woman formerly known as Stefani Germanotta up for Best Actress In A Drama and Best Original Song for “Shallow.” The musical remake also earned a Best Actor and Best Director nomination for Gaga’s co-star Bradley Cooper, with the fifth iteration of the famous flick earning a Best Motion Picture – Drama nomination.
Today’s Golden Globe nominations make Lady Gaga the only artist in a decade to score a Golden Globe nomination trifecta, with Gaga earning nominations in film, TV and music. We can’t forget Gaga’s first win, which came in 2016 for her role as The Countess in Ryan Murphy’s America Horror Story: Hotel. The Grammy winner’s speech was beautiful and moving, but what we really remember is this.
Unfortunately, Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t nominated this year, but we have a feeling Gaga’s (inevitable?) win(s) will still produce some quality gifs. Rah rah, Mother Monster.
Should Gaga win for her role as musical ingénue Ally in A Star Is Born, she’ll make history as the first singer to take home the Golden Globe for Best Actress In A Drama. We’ve bolded the ‘Drama’ part because that’s where history could be made.
Fellow singer-turned-actor Cher has won two Golden Globes, including Best Supporting Actress In A Drama in 1984 for Silkwood and Best Actress In A Comedy or Musical for Moonstruck in 1988. Madonna also took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress In A Comedy or Musical in 1997 for Evita, with Barbra Streisand winning the same award in 1969 for Funny Girl.
Streisand also took home two Golden Globes for the same role as Gaga in the 1977 version of A Star Is Born, including Best Original Song for “Evergreen” and Best Actress In A Comedy or Musical, but Gaga’s inclusion on the Drama side could help her make history.
As predicted, Gaga’s huge and devoted fan base is shook over Thursday’s Golden Globe announcement and the singer’s chances of making award show history.
