32-year-old superstar Lady Gaga just opened up about receiving two Oscar nominations for her role in ‘A STAR IS BORN!’
Gaga is nominated for a Best Actress award as well as Best Original Song for her co-writing of the song ‘Shallow.’ Gaga just told the New York Times that she missed the announcement because she slept in, and only found out about the announcement around 8.30am PST after being phoned by her manager Bobby Campbell. She says: “I’ve been trying to get some sleep because I’m on showbiz time. I woke up around 8:30 and I didn’t know anything about it.” When she heard the news she says she “just burst into tears.”
She also slept through all of the congratulatory texts and calls she got in the morning, adding: “The ones that mean the most to me are the ones that come from my family. These are not Oscar nominations for me, these are Oscar nominations for the Germanottas. I come from an Italian-immigrant family, and this feels like a very big win for them. This film was a lot of hard work, and I wouldn’t know that hard work if I didn’t know the hard work of the lineage of my family.” To read the entire interview with Lady Gaga click here.
