“Shallow” is a pivotal moment in A Star Is Born, since it speaks about Ally and Jackson’s conversations. Collaborated by singer Lady Gaga and American actor and filmmaker Bradley Cooper. However, Gaga wrote it from Ally’s point of view with the self-aware lyrics asking each other if they are content being who they are.
A rock power ballad, the song finds Gaga and Cooper trading verses and gradually moves towards the climactic final chorus with a vocal run by Gaga. The recording is interspersed with the sound of audience noise and applause. Gaga premiered it on DJ Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show while giving an interview about the film.
An accompanying music video was also released, showing both Gaga’s and Cooper’s characters singing “Shallow” together onstage, interspersed with scenes from A Star Is Born.
“Shallow” received acclaim from music critics, who commended Gaga’s vocals, the dramatic nature of the composition and the songwriting. Commercially, the song topped the charts in more than twenty countries and reached the top ten elsewhere.
It received numerous accolades, including the Academy Award for Best Original Song, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, the BAFTA Award for Best Film Music and the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Song.
It garnered four Grammy Award nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year while winning for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media. As of February 2021, it is currently the 30th most streamed song on Spotify

A brilliant performance.
This was an amazing film very deserving of its awards I think. This was such great casting as well. Lady Gaga rocked it and, well, lets just say I have had a crush on Bradley Cooper since his movie, “Limitless,” he did an amazing job as well. Amazing film!!!! Hugs and love and coffee coming your way my friend. Love Joni
