'Coco's Best Original Song Win at Oscars Makes Songwriter Robert Lopez a Double EGOT Winner

Coco not only picked up two awards at the 2018 Academy Awards last night — but it also did something else amazing.

It made songwriter Robert Lopez, who wrote “Remember Me” with wife Kristina Anderson-Lopez, a double EGOT winner!

An EGOT honor is a distinction given to those who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award — and Robert, has done it twice!

Robert actually won his first Oscar, also with his wife, for the song “Let It Go” from Frozen, and then added two Daytime Emmy awards for his work on the animated children’s series Wonder Pets.

His three Grammys are for Best Musical Theater Album (Book of Mormon), Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (Frozen) and Best Song Written for Visual Media (“Let It Go”); and he’s actually won every Tony he’s been nominated for too; three in total.

Pretty impressive, right? But, then you can add that Robert is the youngest person ever to complete an EGOT, and the quickest to win all four awards — 10 years.

If you missed it, check out the spectacular “Remember Me” performance from the Oscars below!
