Surprisingly the Oscars this year has been a good one! Between Lupita N’Yongo receiving Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave to Pharrell’s energetic performance of his amazing track “Happy” to Pink paying tribute to the Wizard of Oz with “Over The Rainbow”, all in all President Cheryl Boone and the Oscar team has created one for the books!
It happened to be a special night for Brooklyn’s Own Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the originators of the Oscar winning song “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen. Not only did they have one of the most amazing speeches of the night but Robert Lopez has become the twelfth and youngest (39) member of the exclusive EGOT club. EGOT means that they have won an Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy! This is epic and adds to the amazing list of Brooklynites doing such amazing things!
Frozen’s soundtrack recently became the longest-running No. 1 film soundtrack since 2003. The movie has passed The Lion King as Disney’s highest-grossing animated film to date, with $865 million worldwide.
Congrats to Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez from Brooklyn!
