Over the weekend, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper gave an audience at her Las Vegas show a treat as the pair sang the Oscar-nominated “Shallow” from their film “A Star is Born.” Their act could reach a much wider audience next month if the pair perform the song on the Academy Awards.
Lady Gaga may be in a battle with Glenn Close for the Best Actress Oscar but she is all but sure to win the Best Original Song award for this tune, which is at the heart of the film.
While Cooper has been onstage at the Dolby Theater to present, he has never sang at the Academy Awards. Gaga has taken her turn in the spotlight twice, having performed a medley from “The Sound of Music” in 2015 and her nominated song “Til It Happens to You” the following year.
Besides that Oscar, “Shallow” could win Lady Gaga a whopping four Grammys including her first two in the general field — for both Record of the Year and Song of the Year — as well Best Song Written for Visual Media. In addition, she and Cooper could share in the Best Pop/Duo Group Performance prize.
But don’t expect both of them to attend the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. Odds are Lady Gaga will stay stateside while Cooper will jet to London to represent the film at the BAFTA Awards. His remake of the Hollywood classic reaped seven bids, including Best Picture.
