Lady Gaga

It is an awarding weekend for Lady Gaga.

The A Star Is Born star picked up major accolades at the BAFTA Awards and the Grammy Awards, which she responded to on social media.

At the 2019 BAFTA Awards — the British version of the Academy Awards — A Star Is Born received seven nominations and won in the category of Best Original Music for "Shallow."

Gaga is currently in Los Angeles to attend the Grammy Awards on Sunday evening; costar and director Bradley Cooper accepted the honor at the BAFTA ceremony. However, she provided an image Saturday of her emotional response on Twitter. 

"I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music @BAFTA ‘s," wrote the 32-year-old entertainer, who shares the award with Cooper and writer Lukas Nelson. "I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well. We made a film about music. This means the world to me. Thank u to all our fans we love u so much, we wouldn’t be here without u #BAFTAs."

Shortly afterward, Gaga won Best Song Written for Visual Media and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Shallow," as well as and Best Pop Solo Performance with "Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)" at the Grammy Awards. "Shallow" may earn several other accolades later this evening, as it is nominated at the Grammy Awards in the categories of Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

"I’m not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight," Gaga tweeted. "We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night. I’m in tears with honor and gratitude. Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you."

At the Grammys, Gaga repeated the message of A Star Is Born, which centers on a character who struggles with internal demons. "I’m so proud to be part of a movie that addresses mental health issues," said Gaga, who encouraged those suffering from them to seek out help.
