Lady Gaga‘s first major motion picture, A Star Is Born, delivers a searing performance from the triple-threat — and audiences are already campaigning for her to win big as award season approaches.
After A Star Is Born opened nationwide on Friday (Oct. 5), many hit screenings of the film and tweeted about it to basically demand that the Academy just hand over the little gold statuette to Gaga already as soon as they walked out of the theater.
Even Ellen DeGeneres is hopping on the Oscar For Gaga bandwagon, as she straight-up declared that the pop star would take home film’s most coveted honor for her performance. (Gaga was gracious and humble and stressed that it wasn’t about the recognition, but that the reward for her was making something that “moves” audiences. Ellen called bulls–t, but the compliment stands.)
Aside from Ellen’s, here are some of the most passionate endorsements for Gaga’s performance (and red carpet glam, which was so well received it deserves award recognition of its own) to hit over A Star Is Born‘s opening weekend.

How do I explain to my parents/teachers that I’m dropping out of school so I can completely devote my time to campaigning for Lady Gaga’s Oscar?

The question isn’t if L. Gaga will win the Oscar, but which nominee will yell out “yaas Gaga” from the front of the Kodak.

Before I saw A Star Is Born, I felt certain Lady Gaga was going to win an Oscar. I could not have been more wrong, she’s gonna win two.
