Oscars 2018: Filipino-American Robert Lopez Wins Again for ‘Coco’ Theme Song

After winning an Oscar for ‘Let It Go’ in, Filipino-American composer Robert Lopez did it again tonight! Lopez, along with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, won the Academy Award for Best Original song for ‘Remember Me’, the theme song for ‘Coco’.

‘Remember Me’ was the favorite to win the Oscar for Best Original Song this year despite some very tough competition. The theme song from ‘Coco’ bested “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman”, which would have given its composers, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, back-to-back-wins after their victory for ‘La La Land’ last year.

‘Remember Me’ likewise edged out Diane Warren’s ‘Stand Up for Something’ from “Marshall’, ‘Mighty River’ co-written by Mary J. Blige for “Mudbound”, and ‘Mystery of Love’ from “Call Me By Your Name”.

“Pinoy pride!” Robert Lopez told the Inquirer when he won in 2017 for the theme song from ‘Frozen’, and we’re pretty sure it’s Pinoy pride once again for this latest victory.
