'Frozen's "Let It Go" Wins Oscar For Best Original Song, Because Of Course — VIDEO
It may be one of the more ignored Oscar categories, but it's certainly one of the most auditorily pleasing. Last year, Adele's memorable "Skyfall" won the Oscar for Best Original Song, and, this year, the 2014 Oscars awarded Frozen's "Let It Go" the Oscar for Best Original Song. The other nominees were “Alone Yet Not Alone,” Alone Yet Not Alone, “Happy,” Despicable Me 2, “The Moon Song,” Her, “Ordinary Love,” Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
"Alone Yet Not Alone" was disqualified for sketchy campaigning.
"Let It Go," performed by Idina Menzel in Frozen was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Frozen's win was preceded by a performance of the song during the ceremony, which featured Idina Menzel belting her Broadway best. Of course, it was as close to perfect as it could be.
The Lopez and Anderson-Lopez thanked rhymed their way through an adorable acceptance speech — arguably one of the best of the night — which made it all the more beautiful that Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell's names rhyme.
The best thing about the win? Now the whole world can feel incredibly smug that they've already been belting out "Let It Go" for months. You can listen to the Best Original Song winner below — again — as well as the acceptance speech.
