As of last night, show business has its first-ever “double EGOT” winner, who not only has won the Emmy, the Oscar, the Grammy and the Tony, but has won each award at least twice.

Variety reports that Robert Lopez accomplished the feat with his Oscar win Sunday night for co-writing — with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez — “Remember Me” from the Pixar film “Coco.”

“Lopez, who had already achieved EGOT status by winning every major show-business award — the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, alphabetically — by 2014, has since that time earned two more Grammys and now a second Oscar,” Variety reports. “The tally now includes two Oscars (for ‘Let It Go’ from ‘Frozen’ and ‘Remember Me’ from ‘Coco’), two Daytime Emmys (for songs in the children’s TV series ‘Wonder Pets’), three Tonys (score for ‘Avenue Q,’ book and score for ‘Book of Mormon’) and three Grammys (two for ‘Frozen’ and one for ‘Book of Mormon’).”
