Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’s “Remember Me” from the animated film Coco has just won the Best Original Song Academy Award.
This latest triumph is Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’s second Academy Award together. The married couple won their first (and until now, only) Oscar for writing the international hit “Let It Go” from Frozen. That song (and the incredibly popular soundtrack it was featured on) also won them a pair of Grammys the following year. Robert Lopez is an EGOT winner, as he has also taken home an Emmy and a Tony Award, making him one of the few talents in history to do so.
“Remember Me” was sung by many different actors throughout the film, but the version that was released as a single was fronted by R&B superstar Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade. The track didn’t become anywhere near as ubiquitous a hit as “Let It Go,” though it was well-received and still did well enough in a few territories.
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez’s “Remember Me” beat out the following four other worthy songs: Pasek & Paul’s “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman, Sufjan Stevens’ “Mystery of Love” from Coco, Diane Warren and Common’s “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall and Mary J. Blige, Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson’s “Mighty River” from the film Mudbound.

“This is a dream come true,” Stormzy said as he picked up three Mobo Awards in Leeds last night.
It represented yet another memorable landmark for the Croydon grime artist who released his acclaimed album ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ this year.
The popular musician, 24, scooped best male, best grime star and best album at the award ceremony at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. Struggling to balance all three awards, Stormzy said: “This ain’t good when you’re drunk is it? Amazing, incredible… You watch the Mobos growing up so this is an honor. I’m so proud.”
He added that claiming the best album award was his most satisfying achievement.
TV presenter, Maya Jama, girlfriend of Stormzy – real name Michael Omari – co-hosted the awards.
The Mobos, which started in 1996, celebrates music of black origin.
Stormzy missed out on the best song category for his hit ‘Big for your Boots’ with J-Hus winning the prize for his single ‘Did you See’.
