Lady Gaga is having a pretty great week.
This morning the singer was nominated for an Oscar in the best original song category for “Til It Happens To You,” a collaboration with Diane Warren that appeared in “The Hunting Ground.” It will compete against the likes of Sam Smith’s “Writing’s On the Wall,” from “Spectre.” The nomination is hot on the heels of her Golden Globes win Sunday night for her role as the Countess in “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
Gaga tweeted an image of a note she had typed on a typewriter.
“This nomination lends a voice to victims & survivors all over the world,” Gaga said. “Thank you to The Academy for recognizing the movement of people who have come together for this film & song in the name of sexual assault. Myself and Diane are simply honored to represent the voices of so many survivors.”
