Welp, that was anticlimactic. After months of generating Oscars buzz, Lady Gaga’s “House of Gucci” performance failed to receive a best actress nomination for this year’s Academy Awards, meaning all those “father, son, House of Gucci” chants we did for good luck were in vain. The five stars nominated for best actress are Jessica Chastain for “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” Olivia Colman for “The Lost Daughter,” Penélope Cruz for “Parallel Mothers,” Nicole Kidman for “Being the Ricardos,” and Kristen Stewart for “Spencer.”

Gaga famously method acted to portray Italian socialite Patrizia Reggiani, speaking in an Italian accent for nine months and employing a psychiatric nurse to protect her mental health while filming, and yet the Academy only recognized “House of Gucci” in the makeup and hairstyling category. After the Oscar nominees were announced on Feb. 8, the multihyphenate applauded the movie’s hair and makeup team and all other stars who were recognized.

“To all the nominees this year, congratulations on all your hard work, dedication, your nomination and YOUR magic—you all deserve major recognition for what was a truly beautiful landscape of performances and accomplishments this past year,” she wrote on Instagram. Your dedication during Covid, your huge hearts, and your ability to tell amazing stories is a gift to the whole world during what is for many a very hard time. Congratulations my friends. Bravo!
