Pop icon, bisexual actress, and LGBTI advocate Lady Gaga finally became an Oscar winner at the 91st Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (24 Feburary).

The Academy named Shallow, from A Star is Born, as Best Original Song.

‘I’ve worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about, you know, it’s not about winning’ she told the audience.

‘But what it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it,’ the first-time Oscar winner also said.


A Star is Born – which features Gaga, as well as Drag Race queens Willam and Shangela – was up for eight awards.

The movie depicts the love story of seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) and struggling artist Ally (Gaga). It was also up for Best Original Song, Best Adapted Screenplay and cinematography and sound mixing gongs.

What’s more, Gaga earlier stunned audiences at the red carpet. She wore a black Alexander McQueen gown and Tiffany diamonds.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s performance of Shallow from A Star Is Born was also met with a standing ovation.
