The husband-and-wife songwriting team picked up their second Oscar March 4 for Coco's "Remember Me." The two won in 2014 for the Frozen anthem "Let It Go"; in their acceptance speech this year, Lopez gave a shout-out to the cast and creative team of the Frozen stage adaptation, now in previews at the St. James Theatre. On hand to present the trophy were Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Mary Poppins Returns co-star Emily Blunt.

With the "Remember Me" win, Robert Lopez becomes the first person to "EGOT" twice, earning multiple Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards.
