Sing it with us now: hoo, huh, uh, huhh-ow, huh, huhh-huhhh. Ever since we heard Lady Gaga belting out the “Shallow” bridge in the first trailer for A Star Is Born, we had a feeling we’d see her at the 91st Academy Awards.
But Mother Monster isn’t just a nominee for Best Original Song: This morning’s nomination announcement revealed she’s also in contention for the Best Actress statuette. In fact, she’s the second-ever person to get an acting nomination and an Original Song nod in the same month, following in the footsteps of only Mary J. Blige.
While we count down the minutes until the 2019 Oscars — which air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET. on Sunday, February 24 — check out how Twitter is celebrating Stefani Germanotta’s big honor in the tweets and memes below.
