Lady Gaga has received a nomination for Best Original Song at the 2023 Oscars. In nominations announced yesterday afternoon by Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams, Gaga was named as one of the five nominees. Lady Gaga gains her fourth Oscar nomination overall for Hold My Hand, the emotive 80s synth-ballad taken from blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick starring Tom Cruise.

Gaga was previously nominated for Best Original Song in 2016 for Til It Happens To You and 2019 for A Star Is Born's Shallow, as well as a Best Actress nomination for that film the same year. Gaga did triumph in 2019, although she was passed up in favour of Olivia Colman for Best Actress, she did nab the Oscar for Shallow, her first win the competition.

Gaga wrote Hold My Hand with frequent collaborator BloodPop, and the two produced it alongside Benjamin Rice (who also won an Oscar in 2019 for helping to compose Shallow).
