Oscars: ‘Frozen’ Songwriter Robert Lopez Becomes Youngest EGOT Winner

Riding the impressive wave of momentum through to Oscar night, songwriter Robert Lopez, 38, became the latest (and youngest) winner of the EGOT, a collection of the four major entertainment awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

Lopez, who won for co-writing the “Frozen” song “Let It Go” with wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, previously won Grammys and Tonys for writing “The Book of Mormon.” He has won two Daytime Emmy Awards for music direction and composition for the kids TV series “The Wonder Pets.”

Lopez joins a short list of individuals who have achieved the impressive kudo quartet, including Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols and Scott Rudin, the most recent to join the list for winning the Grammy for best musical theater album for “Book of Mormon” (also with Lopez) in 2012.

In addition to winning original song, Disney’s “Frozen” won the Oscar for animated feature.
