The nominations for the 2019 Grammy Awards are here and Lady Gaga's latest hit single "Shallow" with Bradley Cooper is up for four awards, including the major categories Song of the Year and Record of the Year, as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written For Visual Media. Additionally, the piano version of her 2016 song "Joanne" will compete alongside such hits as Camila Cabello's "Havana," Ariana Grande's "God Is A Woman," and Post Malone's "Better Now" for the Best Pop Solo Performance award.
Song of the Year and Record of the Year are one of the four most prestigious Grammy categories. This is only the second time Gaga is competing in these categories—she first scored nods for both awards back in 2009 with her hit single "Poker Face."
Song of the Year is awarded exclusively to the songwriters ("Shallow" was co-written by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt) while Record of the Year is awarded to the performer and production team of a song (the production was handled by Gaga and Benjamin Rice).
"Shallow" is the theme song from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's blockbuster movie A Star Is Born, which has grossed $200 million in the United States alone and is enjoying big Oscar buzz. Its parent album, the A Star Is Born soundtrack, was released after this year's Grammy deadline and will be able to compete in the 2020 ceremony.
