In case you missed it, Gaga and Cooper’s performance began with the dynamic duo sitting in the front row of the Dolby Theatre, then walking hand in hand up to the stage without even an introduction. Cooper sang the first verse directly to Gaga, who then sat down at the piano and belted out her part of the song. Following that, Cooper casually walked around the piano and sat down next to her as they finished singing cheek-to-cheek.
Lady Gaga ended up winning the Oscar for writing “Shallow” along with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. She was also nominated for the Best Actress trophy, which ultimately went to Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”) in a shocking upset over front-runner Glenn Close (“The Wife”).
Cooper went into the ceremony with three nominations, but left empty-handed. He lost Best Picture to “Green Book,” he lost Best Director to Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”), and he lost Best Adapted Screenplay to Charlie Wachtel & David Rabinowitz and Kevin Willmott & Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”).
Lady Gaga is no stranger to performing on the Oscar stage, having first popped up at the 2015 ceremony to give a tribute to the 50th anniversary of “The Sound of Music.” One year later she performed the nominated song “Til It Happens to You” (“The Hunting Ground”), which was co-written by Diane Warren. Speaking of Warren, she lost her 10th Oscar on Sunday when “Shallow” beat her own “I’ll Fight” (“RBG”).
