Along with A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody, Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman and If Beale Street Could Talk were nominated in the best film — drama category.

A Star Is Born did take home the award for Best Original Song — Motion Picture with its popular track, “Shallow.”






Lady Gaga joined her fellow songwriters on stage to accept the award, fighting back tears as she spoke.

“I just have to say, as a woman in music, it is really hard to be taken seriously as a musician and a songwriter,” she said. “These three incredible men … lifted me up and supported me. Bradley, I love you.”
