Two “La La Land” songs were up for Best Original Song at this year’s Academy Awards.

One of them took home the Oscar.

“La La Land,” with music by Justin Hurwitz and Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, earned the coveted trophy at Sunday’s ceremony.

It beat out fellow “La La Land” song “Audition,” as well as “Can’t Stop The Feeling” (Trolls), “How Far I’ll Go” (Moana), and “The Empty Chair” (Jim).

— “La La Land” actually swept this year’s music categories; it also won for Best Original Score.
