Though you may not know Robert Lopez by name, you certainly know his work. Teamed with his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez, he’s responsible for infecting your kids with the tune “Let It Go” and all of the other original songs from Disney’s hit animated musical Frozen. Last night Lopez added more acclaim to his career by making awards history after winning yet another Oscar.
Robert Lopez and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez won the Oscar for Best Original Song (again) for their work on the song “Remember Me” from Coco. While this is an honor in itself, it turned out to be an even bigger deal for Robert, because he became the first person ever to get a double EGOT. That’s right, at 43 years old, Lopez has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony twice. Read More »

Last night, the 68th Annual Emmy Awards handed out trophies to some of the best talents working in television today. Broadcast live on ABC, the 2016 Emmys really showed off their diversity, not only with their large roster of presenters, but also with those who took home awards last night.
The show’s host Jimmy Kimmel said at the top of the show that if your show didn’t have a dragon or a white Bronco in it, you should just go home, and the winners pretty much made that true. American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson took home some big awards along with Game of Thrones, but shows like Master of None, Transparent, Veep and Saturday Night Live got plenty of love too.

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.
On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.
Hit the jump for the full list of winners.
