Gaga is also nominated for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture at the Globes for her Star Is Born song "Shallow."  The Globes will be handed out live on NBC Sunday night at  8 p.m. ET/PT.

So far, Gaga has been named Best Actress by the National Board of Review, as well as by a number of film critics' associations awards.  After the Globes, the next show to look at is the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 27.  Gaga's nominated there as well, and the SAG Awards are often a good indicator of future success at the Oscars.
