Robert Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, had struck success again as Academy Award winners. Lopez’s Oscar Award for Best Original Song in Disney Pixar’s Coco (“Remember Me”), though, has placed him in a unique category: that of the only double EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner in history. Lopez is the youngest winner of all four awards, having earned his first set in 2014 by age 39. The Oscar Award the songwriting duo won for Frozen (“Let it Go”) followed two Daytime Emmy Awards for the animated series The Wonder Pets (2008, 2010); three Tony Awards, two for The Book of Mormon (2011) and an award for Avenue Q (2004); and three Grammys, two of which were for Frozen (2015) and another win for The Book of Mormon (2012).
