A FALSE ALARM, AND THEN AN EGOT
With his Oscar win for Best Original Song, “Let It Go” co-composer Robert Lopez has earned his EGOT.
The term, popularized by the comedy “30 Rock,” describes the act of winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
Earlier in the evening, a reporter committed an Oscar faux pas backstage by congratulating “Frozen” co-director Jennifer Lee on her EGOT. Her film won the best animated feature award, but she hasn’t gathered the other three honors.
Lee had never heard the term, but it elicited groans from the nerdier crowd.
