Songwriter Robert Lopez won his second Oscar last night, alongside his wife and writing partner, Kristen Anderson-Lopez. This makes him the first person in history to have won at least TWO each of an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony — a DOUBLE EGOT!

The duo won the award for Best Original Song for "Remember Me" from the movie Coco.

While becoming the first double EGOT is a huge deal, this is not the first time Robert Lopez has made history with his impressive awards collection, so let's break it down.

In 2014, he won his first Oscar for cowriting the song "Let It Go" from Frozen, making him the youngest person to complete an EGOT at the age of 39.

If THAT wasn't enough, he also made history by taking the least time to win all four awards — just 10 years!


Are you still with me? Because here's where it gets really exciting: Not only does Lopez have two of each award, he actually has THREE Grammys and THREE Tony Awards!

His three Grammy Awards include Best Musical Theater Album (Book of Mormon), Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (Frozen), and Best Song Written for Visual Media (“Let It Go”).

Here he is after winning his second and third Tony Awards, alongside his Book of Mormon cowriters, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

He won his first Tony for Best Original Score for Avenue Q, and he received two Tonys for his work on Book of Mormon — Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
