You know Lady Gaga's inner teenage theater geek is fully LIVING right now.
After winning a Golden Globe (and some Leonardo DiCaprio side-eye) for her performance as The Countess in "American Horror Story: Hotel," Lady Gaga, 29, scored a much-deserved Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for "Til It Happens to You."
Gaga co-wrote the track with Diane Warren for "The Hunting Ground," a shocking expose of rape crimes on college campuses across the US. The film, unfortunately, was shut out of the documentary feature category.
The "Born This Way" singer posted a powerful note on Instagram, dedicating the nomination to "victims & survivors all over the world."
"Thank you to the Academy for recognizing the movement of people who have come together around 'The Hunting Ground' and 'Til It Happens To You' in the name of sexual assault," she said in an official statement. "Diane Warren and I are simply honored to represent the voices of so many survivors.”
Although her Golden Globe won't count toward the much-coveted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), if Gaga wins the Oscar, she will be halfway to securing the ultimate title in Hollywood, shared only by the greats.
She already has six Grammy wins to her name.
The singer just has to beat out "Earned It," from "50 Shades of Grey," "Writing's on the Wall" from "Spectre," "Simple Song #3" from "Youth" and "Manta Ray" from "Racing Extinction."
Sam Smith took home the Golden Globe for his snoozeworthy "Spectre" theme on Sunday, but we have a good feeling Gaga might take home the crown come Oscar time. She is queen, after all.
