Lady Gaga had an emotional moment at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Sunday as she received a standing ovation for her performance in Hollywood film ‘A Star Is Born’. Touted as an Oscar contender, the film has been directed by Bradley Cooper who also co-stars in the film with the singer. 

The 32-year-old singer was at the Q&A panel at the TIFF as she lauded her cast members and director, 43, for putting “every last drop of blood from their heart and their veins on set every single day.”

As Gaga broke into tears, she said, “I watched (Cooper) work tirelessly on this film, giving it everything, and you never stopped. Nobody here did.” Lukas Nelson, son of music icon Willie Nelson and co-writer of songs on the film, told her, “You just destroyed every single scene you were in”, to which she couldn’t stop getting emotional.
