The song was an Oscar favourite from the moment it dropped and was praised for her emotional depth and Gaga’s vocals. Along with Best Original Song, the song has other nominations such as Best Picture and Best Actress, for Lady Gaga’s performance.

Netizens also spoke about how Lady Gaga made history as the only person to win a Golden Globe, a Grammy, a BAFTA and an Oscar in a single year.
