“Remember Me” from “Coco” has won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez wrote the music and lyrics for the popular earworm, which is performed several times throughout the acclaimed Pixar film about a boy’s musical journey through the land of the dead — Benjamin Bratt, Gael García Bernal, Anthony Gonzalez, and Ana Ofelia Murguía all do their own renditions.

Also nominated in the category were “Mighty River” from “Mudbound,” “Mystery of Love” from “Call Me by Your Name,” “Stand Up for Something” from “Marshall,” and “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.” Elsewhere in the musical categories, “The Shape of Water” won Best Original Score by beating out “Dunkirk,” “Phantom Thread,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
