The movie has been richly acclaimed since its release back in October, with Gaga’s performance as Ally Maine being singled out by plenty of critics and film fans alike as being worthy of the highest praise.
Gaga has now been nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role by the Screen Actors Guild, with their 2019 awards ceremony set to take place on January 27 in LA.
As well as a nod for Gaga, A Star Is Born has also been nominated in the following categories: Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role (for Bradley Cooper), Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role (Sam Elliot) and Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
I'm so honored to be recognized by SAG as an actress alongside Bradley and Sam Elliot, and above all completely emotional to be recognized as an ensemble. A real family was built with this cast and I am so grateful. Thank you so very much for these nominations? what a gift. https://t.co/Wh9ToMGxuV

Gaga hailed her cast mates on Twitter last night following the nominations announcement, saying that she was “completely emotional to be recognised as an ensemble. A real family was built with this cast and I am so grateful.”
However, the surge of goodwill for Gaga didn’t stop Madonna from recently accusing the star of ripping off one of her quotes during the press tour for A Star Is Born.
