Lady Gaga's 2019 Oscars Acceptance Speech: "If You Have A Dream, Fight For It"
Lady Gaga can add "Oscar winner" to her many accolades.
The GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter's song "Shallow," performed with Bradley Cooper and written with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, won the Oscar for achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original Song) at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Gaga's emotional acceptance speech included words of encouragement for anyone who has a dream: "All I have to say is that this is hard work. I've worked hard for a long time and it's not about winning, but what it's about is not giving up. If you have a dream fight for it ... and it's not about how many times you get rejected ... it's about how many times you stand up and are brave and you keep on going. Thank you," she said.
"Shallow" is a part of the soundtrack for A Star Is Born. Other song nominees were "All The Stars" from Black Panther, "I'll Fight" from RBG and "The Place Where Lost Things Go" from Mary Poppins Returns.
The songstress and Cooper also had a chance to perform their Oscar-winning and GRAMMY-winning ballad at the 2019 Oscars, where Gaga played the piano as Cooper sang across from her.
