Lady Gaga isn't letting her Oscar snub stop her from congratulating her "House of Gucci" team, who received a sole nomination on Tuesday, and all those nominated by the Academy.

Taking to Instagram, the "Born This Way" singer -- who failed to snag a best actress nod -- saluted her "House of Gucci" hairstylist, Frederic Aspiras, who was nominated for best makeup and hairstyling alongside makeup artists Göran Lundström and Anna Carin Lock.

Sharing a photo of the two smiling, Gaga expressed, "I could not be happier for a man I call my brother, who I’ve worked with for the last 15 years."

Gaga also shouted out the nominees, writing, "Congratulations on all your hard work, dedication, your nomination and YOUR magic—you all deserve major recognition for what was a truly beautiful landscape of performances and accomplishments this past year."

"Your dedication during Covid, your huge hearts, and your ability to tell amazing stories is a gift to the whole world during what is for many a very hard time," Gaga concluded. "Congratulations my friends. Bravo!"

Many industry insiders considered Gaga -- born Stefani Germanotta -- a shoe-in for a best actress nod at the 94th Academy Awards. This would have been her second time being recognized in the category, after receiving one for "A Star Is Born" in 2019.

Gaga snagged several important precursor nominations in the lead-up to the Oscar nominations announcement, including ones from BAFTA, SAG and the Golden Globes for her showy role as Patrizia Reggiani in "House of Gucci."

Instead, the Academy nominated Jessica Chastain ("The Eyes of Tammy Faye"), Olivia Colman ("The Lost Daughter"), Penélope Cruz ("Parallel Mothers"), Nicole Kidman ("Being the Ricardos") and Kristen Stewart ("Spencer").

Gaga did win an Oscar in 2019 for best original song thanks to "Shallow" from "A Star Is Born."
