Shallow Wins Best Original Song At The Oscars
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's track in A Star is Born has taken out the Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.
'Shallow' has been on the airwaves ever since the movie came out last year and now it's won one of the biggest awards in the entertainment industry.
Lady Gaga burst into tears as she accepted the award on stage and she was joined by Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.
The song beat out 'All The Stars' from Black Panther, 'I'll Fight' from RGB, 'The Place Where Lost Things Go' from Mary Poppins Returns, and 'When a Cowboy Trades his Spurs for Wings' from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
A Star Is Born has been nominated for eight awards tonight, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Bradley Cooper, Best Actress for Lady Gaga, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Elliott, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing.
The trophy cabinet for 'Shallow' is getting pretty heavy after the song took out the same category at the Golden Globes and won a Grammy for Best Duo. It's also won at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Satellite Awards, Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society and Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

And if that wasn't good enough, A Star Is Born also won the BAFTA for Best Original Music.
The accolade was specifically awarded to Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Lukas Nelson, who beat BlacKkKlansman's Terence Blanchard, If Beale Street Could Talk's Nicholas Britell, Isle of Dogs' Alexandre Desplat and Mary Poppin's Returns' Marc Shaiman.
'Shallow' was nominated for four Grammys including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
When Gaga accepted the award at the Grammys, she sent out an inspiring message about mental health - which was a huge underlying theme of A Star is Born.
She told the crowd: "I'm so proud to be a part of a movie that addresses mental health issues. They're so important.
"And a lot of artists deal with that. And we gotta take care of each other. So if you see somebody that's hurting, don't look away.
"And if you're hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you."
The song has gone three times platinum in Australia, two times in Canada and one time in France, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, UK and in the US.
