Oscars: Elton John, Bernie Taupin Win Best Original Song

The rousing, life-affirming “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from Rocketman (Paramount) won the Oscar for best original song at  the 92nd Annual Academy Awards, reports Billboard.

 Elton John co-wrote the song with his long-time collaborator, Bernie Taupin. It’s John’s second Oscar win; Taupin’s first.

Both songwriters saluted their long partnership in their acceptance speeches at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. “Thank you to Bernie who has been a constant in my life, when I was screwed up, when I was normal, he’s always been there for me,” John said.

Taupin also thanked John’s husband, David Furnish, who is one of the producers of Rocketman: “Your tenacity and dedication has driven this train all the way here.”
