Before the first award was handed out tonight at the Oscars, Lady Gaga won the unofficial award for Sweetest Celebrity in the Whole World for literally just being herself.
Gaga was walking the carpet, strutting her stuff in this 🧑🏻🍳chef's kiss 💋 dress…
...when, unfortunately, one of the photographers behind her took a bit of a tumble. On a carpet full of people who didn't quite know what to do, she reacted instantly.
I'm gonna be honest — I feel as if I'd expect most celebrities to politely look shocked from where they were already standing, or maybe even send someone else to help. But Lady Gaga ran over herself to make sure he was OK, and even helped him up.
As a generally anxious person who would've wanted the ~champagne~ (it's no longer red?? confusing) carpet to swallow me whole if I fell in front of thousands of people, this definitely would've taken my whole experience from "Yiiiiiikes" to "Aww!"
Fans online and photographers on the carpet were quick to applaud her for her kindness and quick thinking:
I'm gonna be real with y'all, this tweet joking about her upcoming role as Harley Quinn really got me:
And, in perfect Gaga fashion, she left the whole thing in the cutest way possible, shouting, "We love you!" back to the photographer.
Well, looks as if we simply have no choice but to stan! You can watch the video for yourself here:
