Songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez (L) and Robert Lopez accept Best Original Song for 'Remember Me' from 'Coco' onstage during the 90th Annual Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018 in Hollywood, Calif.

The dynamic songwriting duo of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez took home their second award for Best Original Song at the Oscars on Sunday, March 4, for "Remember Me" from the animated film Coco. The Lopez' first won in this category for Frozen's hit song "Let It Go."   


Earlier in the night, host Jimmy Kimmel joked that the whomever delivered the shortest acceptance speech would take home a brand new jet ski, and though Kristen said the two were "going to go for it," she pointed out, "but we're from Brooklyn." She continued to say how the nominees in this category are nearly equally represented in terms of gender, and hopes that other categories will soon mirror it.    

Coco took home the award for Best Animated Feature.
