The biggest contender for Best Original Song at the 2019 Oscars just added another plus to its list.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s hit “Shallow” from A Star Is Born picked up the 2019 Grammy Award for best song written for visual media at this year’s ceremony. The Grammy goes to Gaga, along with cowriters Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.

Gaga shared her excitement over the win on Twitter.

“I’m not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight. We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night. I’m in tears with honor and gratitude. Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you,” the pop star wrote Sunday night before the show.

Her longtime collaborator Ronson also tweeted, simply writing: “Yes!!!!$$!$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Shallow” was up against fellow Oscar hopeful “All the Stars” from Black Panther, “Mystery of Love” from Call Me By Your Name, “Remember Me” from Coco and last year’s Oscar winner “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.

Gaga was nominated for five awards at the 2019 Grammys; in addition to winning best song written for visual media, she also took home the best pop solo performance award — for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)” — before the telecast started.

Bolstered by Gaga’s booming vocals and Cooper’s crooning intro, “Shallow” was an immediate hit when it first came out ahead of the movie’s October release. It went on to win a Golden Globe at this year’s show and is the favorite heading into the Oscars on Feb. 24.

Earlier in the evening, “Shallow” also won the U.K.’s BAFTA award for best original music.

“I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music @BAFTA ‘s . I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well. We made a film about music. This means the world to me. Thank u to all our fans we love u so much, we wouldn’t be here without u,” Gaga tweeted.
