Shortly after Lady Gaga and co-star, Bradley Cooper took the stage to perform their hit song "Shallow" from their movie The Star Is Born. Gaga won her first-time-ever Oscars for Best Original Song for "Shallow" alongside her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
In her acceptance speech, she said, "Thank you so much to the Academy for this wonderful honor, thank you to every single person in this room, thank you to Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt my co-writers I love them so much. To my sister, my soulmate I love you, my family's here I love you, Mom and Dad. Bradley, there's not a single person on this planet that could have sung this song with me but you. Thank you for believing in us so much.
And if you are at home and you're sitting on your couch, and you are watching this right now, all I have to say is that this is hard work. I've worked hard for a long time, and it's not about, you know, it's not about winning. But what it's about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There's a discipline for passion, and it's not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down, or you're beaten up. It's about how many times you stand up, and are brave, and you keep going. Thank you."
Lady Gaga has won numerous awards in her decade long career but this is her first ever Oscars. She was overjoyed at winning this award and shaking with joy and tears when delivering her acceptance speech.
