Lady Gaga says writing an Oscar-nominated song was a ‘profound and powerful experience’


Lady Gaga says writing her Oscar-nominated song for Tom Cruise’s hit sequel Top Gun: Maverick was a “profound and powerful experience”.

The Poker Face singer thanked the Academy for her nomination, adding that she was “so grateful” for the magic of music and film.”

Gaga was nominated for her song Hold My Hand and will compete with fellow pop star Rihanna, who was nominated for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Lift Me Up, for Best Original Song in the Oscar nominations on Tuesday.

It’s her second wink, after being nominated for and winning the same accolade in 2019 for A Star Is Born’s Shallow, in which she starred alongside Bradley Cooper.

“Thank you so much to the Academy for nominating my song ‘Hold My Hand’ for an Oscar this year!” Gaga wrote, sharing a photo of herself on Instagram.

“Writing this song for the movie Top Gun: Maverick was a profound and powerful experience that I will never forget.

“So grateful for the magic of music and film. Love you my co-writer @bloodpop I’m on set filming now big love for little monsters!”

Other nominees in the Academy’s Best Song category are Diane Warren’s Applause of Tell It Like A Woman; This Is A Life from Everything Everywhere All At Once and Naatu Naatu by MM Keeravani and Chandrabose by RRR.

Naatu Naatu has held off the titans of pop so far, winning the equivalent categories at the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards earlier this month.

Noticeably absent from the list was Taylor Swift, who failed to land her first nomination for her track Carolina, written for the southern murder mystery Where The Crawdads Sing.
