Oscars 2014: “Let It Go” From ‘Frozen’ Wins Best Original Song, Robert Lopez Becomes An EGOT

dae34198392dd01c439aa779250f61e7 Oscars 2014: “Let It Go” From ‘Frozen’ Wins Best Original Song, Robert Lopez Becomes An EGOT

Disney’s Frozen was a multiple winner at the Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2), as the film with the chart-topping soundtrack took home awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez‘s composition “Let It Go,” the original song in question, was performed live at the event by Frozen cast member Idina Menzel…or, as John Travolta introduced her during one of the night’s most eyebrow-raising moments, Adele Mazim. Okey-doke.

Upon winning the Oscar, Robert Lopez earned his EGOT status — that is, he’s now an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award winner. In addition to Frozen, Lopez previously collected various statues for his work on musicals Avenue Q and The Book Of Mormon, as well as the Nickelodeon TV series Wonder Pets.

This week the Frozen soundtrack climbed up to top ofthe Billboard 200 for a fifth non-consecutive week, earning it the honor of being the soundtrack with the most weeks at #1 since Titanic‘s epic 16-week stint atop the main chart in 1998. The longest stay at the top for a soundtrack in the SoundScan era (since May 25, 1991) was the 20-week reign of The Bodyguard.
