Since Streisand made Academy Awards history, nine female composers have followed her up to the podium. The most recent of those, Kristen Anderson-Lopez , won twice for songs she co-wrote with her husband, Robert Lopez: “Let It Go” from “Frozen” (2013) and “Remember Me” from “Coco” (2017).

The following year, Buffy Saint-Marie and co-composer Jack Nitzsche as well as lyricist Will Jennings won for “Up Where You Belong” from “An Officer and a Gentleman.”
