Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow’ wins Golden Globe but A Star Is Born snubbed

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s ‘Shallow‘ only winner for A Star Is Born

The Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper duet ‘Shallow‘ won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song last night.

The song is from A Star Is Born and interestingly, although the blockbuster movie was nominated in several other categories, the Gaga/Cooper track was the only thing from the film that won in its category.

Shallow’ was co-written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando. The song beat out Annie Lennox’s ‘Requiem For A Private War‘, Troye Sivan’s ‘Revelation‘, Dolly Parton’s ‘Girl In The Movies‘ and Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s ‘All The Stars‘.

A Star Is Born was passed over for a Golden Globe in the Best Motion Picture — Drama category — with Queen biographical film Bohemian Rhapsody taking home the award.

Lady Gaga herself lost in the Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama category to Glenn Close, who took home the Golden Globe for her performance in The Wife.

Bradley Cooper was passed over in his category — Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture — Drama, with Rami Malek winning for Bohemian Rhapsody.

Cooper was also nominated for Best Director, but that award was given to a very well-deserving Alfonso Cuaron for Roma.

Overall, last night’s Golden Globes was quite a substantial snub for A Star Is Born, as the film was expected to dominate the event and, thus, be set up well for several Oscar nominations on January 22nd.

However, the snubbing of the film seemed to by-pass Lady Gaga, who was thrilled in her acceptance speech for her win for ‘Shallow‘. She took the stage with and thanked Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson for “standing with me, they lifted me up, they supported me”.
