Believe it or not, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez's first major award for Frozen was Best Original Song for "Let It Go" at the 2014 Oscars. Revisiting the moment for A.frame's "Behind the Oscars Speech" series, the couple and creative partners say their win felt like "getting married again."
"It certainly felt great to walk down the aisle," Lopez shares. "I felt like getting married again, because this is my wife. It reminded me of that same moment, you're just like, 'This is really happening. Our work just won the Oscar.' It's amazing."
"I think that's why I turned to you and kissed you," Anderson-Lopez adds. "I just have to have this moment of connection with him."
Anderson-Lopez also had a moment with presenter Jamie Foxx.
"I asked Jamie Foxx to hold my purse, because I didn't know how I was going to hold my speech and hold the Oscar. So, I was like, 'Would you hold this?'" she remembers. "And then I was like, 'Ah! I asked Jamie Foxx to hold my purse!'"
The couple found a clever way to thank their Frozen collaborators, calling out their names in a catchy rhyme. While Lopez and Anderson-Lopez wrote the songs for the animated film, Christophe Beck composed the score. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee directed Frozen, based on a screenplay by Lee. Peter Del Vecho produced, while Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana voiced Frozen's main characters. In addition to Best Original Song, Frozen also won Best Animated Feature at the 86th Academy Awards.
