Last night Lopez added more acclaim to his career by making awards history after winning yet another Oscar.

Celebrities attend 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party at Sunset Plaza.

If you're after the facts that'll really make you feel crap about yourself and all of your achievements, Robert is the man who's responsible for Frozen's iconic Let It Go (yep, you've got him to thank for that one), which bagged him his first Oscar. His three Grammys are for Best Musical Theater Album (Book of Mormon), Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media (Frozen) and Best Song Written for Visual Media ("Let It Go").

Lopez completed the feat at Sunday's Academy Awards, where he picked up a Best Original Song win (with Kristen Anderson-Lopez, his frequent collaborator and wife) for "Remember Me" from Coco. That's right, at 43 years old, Lopez has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony twice. There are now 12 people who have achieved an "EGOT"-winning an award per body". He owns two Daytime Emmy awards for his work on the animated series Wonder Pets. The musician shared his 2018 Oscar for Best Original Song with his wife and songwriting partner Kristen Anderson-Lopez. That includes Best Original Score for Book of Mormon and Best Original Score for the R-rated puppet comedy Avenue Q. The songwriter is now 43 years old, which means he's young enough to do it all again a couple more times.

Robert Lopez dedicated the win to his late mother.

During the couple's acceptance speech, Anderson-Lopez noted the impressive diversity of those nominated in their category, as they beat acts including Mary J. Blige, Sufjan Stevens and Common.
