Lady Gaga’s transformation from pop heavyweight to Hollywood leading lady continues with the “Shallow” singer taking out the 2019 Critics' Choice Award for best actress in a tie with Glenn Close.
Gaga was left in tears as she accepted the prestigious honor Sunday night for her portrayal of struggling artist Ally in A Star is Born.
Inviting Close to join her at the mic, Gaga read from a prepared speech: “I’m so honored by this. I went to places in my mind and in my heart that I did not know existed…this is a tremendous honor. I feel recognized not just for my performance but for the inner work it took in the creation of this character.”
