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.
