Gaga was certainly surprised by the unexpected praise. Her mouth dropped open when she heard her name and tears rolled down her cheeks as Hill gushed. She was was so overcome with emotion that she rested her face in her hands before taking a deep breath to regain her composure and wipe the tears from her face.

The annual soirĂ©e toasts the year’s nominees with a seated lunch that ends with a class photo. Gaga is nominated for the song “Till It Happens to You” from the documentary.
