Oscars #EGOT

1

Robert Lopez and with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, won Best Original Song for the song “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen” at Sunday night’s Oscars. Becoming the 12th (and youngest) person ever to win an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) Winning all four awards has been referred to as winning the Grand Slam of Show Business!

Fun fact: The “let it go” singer Idina Menzel was introduced to the stage by John Travolta as Adele Dazeem or Dazim whatever your prefer, at this point it does not really matter … #lol
