Grammy-winner Lady Gaga is now on her way to an EGOT after nabbing Best Song during Sunday's Academy Awards.

Gaga won for "Shallow," the iconic theme from A Star Is Born, which she starred in with Bradley Cooper. Gaga was honored with the award, along with Cooper, who performed it with her, and songwriters Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt, who wrote "Shallow" along with Gaga.

The pop star makes history as one of the few out bisexual stars to win an Academy Award.

Gaga thanked the Academy, her family, and Bradley Cooper, before exclaiming how hard work got her there.

"This is hard work. I've worked hard for a long time. It's not about winning -- what it's about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There's a discipline for passion, and it's not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or get beaten up. It's about how many times you stand up and are brave and keep going."

Ronson thanked Gaga: "I think when you're in the room with this person, you don't have to do that much. She acts, she sings the song. Lady Gaga, we salute you."
