Lady Gaga delighted fans around the world when she dropped her powerful anthem 'Hold My Hand' from the Top Gun: Maverick soundtrack.

And now the 36-year-old pop star has received her fourth Oscar nomination – her third in the best original song category – for the track.

Following the news, Gaga took to social media to share her thanks for the Best Original Song nomination.

Alongside a photo of her holding a bouquet of flowers, she wrote: "Thank you so much to the Academy for nominating my song 'Hold My Hand' for an Oscar this year!

"Writing this song for the film Top Gun: Maverick was a deep and powerful experience that I will never forget. So grateful for the magic of music and cinema. Love you my co-writer @bloodpop I’m on set filming now big love to little monsters!"

Gaga will go up against Rihanna's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever song 'Lift Me Up', Son Lux's 'This Is a Life' from Everything Everywhere All at Once, the RRR song 'Naatu Naatu' and the Diane Warren–penned 'Applause' from Tell It Like a Woman.

Gaga previously won Best Original Song at the 2019 Oscars for 'Shallow,' which she recorded with Bradley Cooper for their acclaimed romantic drama A Star Is Born.

She was also previously nominated for 'Til It Happens to You' from The Hunting Ground in 2015.

The first Top Gun won the Oscar for Best Original Song for Berlin's 'Take My Breath Away'.
