Lady Gaga’s absence from the list of performers at the upcoming Lady Gaga Oscar ceremony has left fans and industry insiders speculating about the reason behind her absence. Currently, the pop star is busy filming for her role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming DC Comics movie “Joker: Folie à Deux,” with a release date of October 9, 2024.

Gaga’s portrayal of Harley Quinn in the movie is reportedly that of a psychiatrist who falls for the Joker before turning to a life of villainy. Despite her absence from the Oscars’ performance list. There remains the possibility that Gaga will still attend the ceremony, but not perform. The process of putting together an Oscars performance is often challenging and time-consuming. The Academy is known for keeping a few surprises up its sleeve.
Upon receiving her nomination for “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick,” Gaga expressed her gratitude to the Academy and to her co-writer, Bloodpop, for the honor. While waiting for news about the Oscars ceremony. Gaga dropped a new video for Dom Pérignon titled “The Labor of Creation,” directed by Woodkid with choreography from Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
If Gaga does not perform at the ceremony. She will not be the first to have an original song go unperformed.

As the ceremony approaches, fans and the internet at large will have to continue waiting for any updates on Gaga’s potential appearance or performance.
