The singer and actress burst into happy tears as she picked up the Best Original Song Oscar for 'Shallow', the stand-out track from A Star Is Born and delivered a heartfelt speech while collecting her award.

The singer, songwriter and actress was flanked on stage by co-writers, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

During her acceptance speech, she encouraged her fans: "If you're are at home and you're sitting on your couch, all I have to say is that this is hard work. I've worked hard for a long time and it's not about winning but what's it's about is not giving up. if you have a dream, fight for it.

"There's a discipline of our passion and it's not about how many times you get rejected, it's about how many times you stand up and are brave and you keep on going."

Jennifer Hudson nodded encouragingly along in the audience and mouthed: "Yes."

Sorry, we're not crying we've just got something in our eye.

Lady Gaga had earlier received a standing ovation after a moving performance of the track alongside Bradley Cooper.

It was the singer's first public appearance since it was revealed she'd ended her engagement with Christian Carino. Meanwhile, Bradley arrived his mum Gloria and his girlfriend, Russian model and mother of his child, Irina Shayk.

Despite Cooper and Shayk looking adorably loved up on the red carpet, Twitter users couldn't stop commenting on the chemistry between Cooper and Gaga, with many speculating that they're "secretly in love."

The song beat out 'All The Stars' from Black Panther, 'I'll Fight' from RGB, 'The Place Where Lost Things Go' from Mary Poppins Returns, and 'When a Cowboy Trades his Spurs for Wings' from The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and after that performance it's not hard to see why.
