LOS AN­GE­LES – The

Golden Globe nom­i­na­tions rec­og­nized Lady Gaga and

Bradley Cooper’s tal­ents as ac­tors, but Thurs­day’s an­nounce­ment also came with a nod for their soul­ful duet “Shal­low” from “A Star is Born.”

They join an im­pres­sive roster of mu­sic stars who earned Globe nom­i­na­tions Thurs­day, in­clud­ing Kendrick La­mar, SZA, Dolly Par­ton, An­nie Len­nox and Troye Si­van and Jonsi.

Cooper and Gaga were each nom­i­nated for best drama act­ing hon­ors for their per­for­mances in “A Star is Born,” and Cooper also earned a direct­ing nod.

“Shal­low” co-writer Mark Ron­son re­ceived his first Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion for his work on the song. He told The As­so­ci­ated Press he sent text mes­sages to Cooper and Gaga telling them both, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“When you go into writ­ing a song for a movie like this, you hope that it’s good enough to make it in the film. But to be nom­i­nated is amaz­ing,” said Ron­son, who learned about the nom­i­na­tion af­ter tap­ing a talk show with Mi­ley Cyrus in Lon­don. “It’s just a re­ally good song. The way (Gaga and Bradley) per­formed the song takes it to an­other level.”

Gaga said in a state­ment, “The film has truly been a pas­sion pro­ject for ev­ery­one in­volved and we’ve all be­come a fam­ily.”

La­mar, a Grammy win­ner, and SZA be­came first-time Globe nom­i­nees for their song from the Marvel Stu­dios block­buster “Black Pan­ther.” The su­per­hero film also re­ceived a nom­i­na­tion for best orig­i­nal score along with “A Quiet Place,” ″Isle of Dogs, “First Man” and “Mary Pop­pins Re­turns.”

“It’s a nice sur­prise to be wo­ken up. I thought it was an­other evac­u­a­tion,” said “Quiet Place” com­poser Marco Bel­trami, who had to evac­u­ate from his stu­dio for a week dur­ing a mas­sive South­ern Cal­i­for­nia wild­fire last month.

Dolly Par­ton and Linda Perry were nom­i­nated for “Girl in the Movies” from the up­com­ing film “Dumplin,” while An­nie Len­nox was rec­og­nized for “Re­quiem for a Pri­vate War” from “A Pri­vate War” and Troye Si­van and Jónsi for “Rev­e­la­tion” from “Boy Erased.”

“Black Pan­ther” com­poser Lud­wig Go­rans­son said he was awak­ened by his wife who flashed her phone in his face with the news.

“I’m just re­ally proud, but to­tally sur­prised,” said Go­rans­son, who worked with Child­ish Gam­bino on “This Is Amer­ica.” ″You never want to take any­thing for granted, es­pe­cially in this busi­ness.”
