Shortly following the announcement on Tuesday (Jan. 22), Bennett — who joined Gaga onstage days before at the launch of her Jazz & Piano residency in Las Vegas on Jan. 20 — congratulated her on her nominations for best actress and the best original song nomination for “Shallow,” her collaboration with Mark Ronson for the film.
‘I always knew you could do anything at the highest level of artistry,’ he writes on Twitter.
Bennett and Gaga remained close following their dual effort, 2014’s Cheek to Cheek, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. They were spotted entering the same recording studio last May, leading to speculation that their interpretation of various jazz standards could lead to a sequel.
