American singer-actor Lady Gaga was named best actress for 2021, on Friday, by the New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) for her performance in 'House of Gucci'.

Following big hit movie 'A Star Is Born', which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, Gaga plays the real-life Patrizia Reggiani who was convicted of plotting the assassination of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci.

Gaga recently told The New York Times that working with director Ridley Scott on 'House of Gucci' was unparalleled, praising the director for his collaborative approach to filmmaking.

"I have to say this, Ridley: There's not a lot of men that are directors who would empower a woman to be ugly on camera," the pop star said.

"When I aged and had scenes where I was in this embarrassing, desperate state, he embraced the ugliness of this character and that should be commended, because it is ugly to be disposed of for your looks, it is ugly to be left for a younger woman," she added, "So I appreciate that Ridley took something that was sort of a 'sexy murder' and he let it be ugly."
