It was recently reported that Lady Gaga would be attending the Grammys on February 10 instead of the BAFTA Awards on the same day. Now the recording academy and CBS have officially revealed that she will be performing on music’s biggest night. Will she also be a big winner?
Lady Gaga is already a six-time Grammy winner out of 24 nominations she has received over the course of her career thus far. But this may be her single biggest year on the awards scene because she’s not only an awards contender for her music. Her role in “A Star is Born” has also earned her Golden Globe, BAFTA and Oscar nominations for Best Actress, and she won Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Awards (in a tie with Glenn Close for “The Wife”).
“A Star is Born” is also what got her to the Grammys this year. The original song “Shallow,” a duet with her co-star Bradley Cooper, earned her four nominations: Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Visual Media Song. She’s considered a front-runner for Record and Song, according to the combined predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users. And she even has an extra nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Joanne,” the title track from her last album.
If our odds are right it would be Lady Gaga’s first victories in the general field after one past nomination for Record of the Year (“Poker Face” in 2010) and three previous bids for Album of the Year (“The Fame” in 2010, “The Fame Monster” in 2011, and “Born This Way” in 2012). She could be back at the Grammys next year too. While “Shallow” was released as a single just in time to be considered at these awards, the rest of the “Star is Born” soundtrack dropped after the September 30 eligibility cutoff, which means it’ll be eligible for Grammys in 2020. By then she might be an Oscar winner too.
