Songwriter Robert Lopez becomes double EGOT victor after Oscars success

This year, he added another Oscar to his crowded mantle with his win for "Remember Me" from "Coco".

If he's even got room for them all, you'll also find his three - yes, THREE - Grammys for best musical theatre album (Book of Mormon), best compilation soundtrack for visual media (Frozen) and best song written for visual media (Let It Go).

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have the Oscar touch: the husband-and-wife songwriting duo won their second Academy Award for best original song. He was only 39 when became the 12th person to competitively win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

Coco's Remember Me beat stiff competition at last night's Oscars from four other masterful songs: This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, Mystery of Love from Coco, Stand Up for Something from Marshall and Mighty River from Mudbound.

But with the raw speed Harvick had and the variable of lapped traffic, Busch was never able to erase a three-second deficit. You're talking 23 races between now and then for cars to evolve and setups to evolve and things like that.

On accepting the award with Kristen Anderson-Lopez Sunday, the pair thanked the team at Pixar for letting them "be a part of this important celebration of Mexico, music and family", in addition to those who helped contribute to the song. The songwriter is now 43 years old, which means he's young enough to do it all again a couple more times. He has won two Daytime Emmys for his work on Wonder Pets, an animated children's series. He was the co-creator of legendary Broadway musicals "Avenue Q" and "The Book of Mormon", winning Tony Awards for both. Only a dozen people, such as Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, and Whoopi Goldberg, have accomplished that feat.

Keep an eye on Robert Lopez and maybe we can learn a thing or two from his award-winning ways.
