The composer won his most recent award for best original song in a children’s, young adult or animated program. Specifically, he won for a song he composed for the Disney Channel’s “Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure.”
Menken is the 16th person to reach EGOT status.

He has eight Oscars, winning for scores from the animated hits “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin” and “Pocahontas.”
