On Monday morning, David Beckham woke up to the news of Sir Elton John winning the Oscar. David and John are longtime friends, so it was kind of obvious the star footballer got really excited over his friends to win, and little emotional as well.
It's the first time in 25 years Elton won Oscar. This time the legendary singer won for the song called 'I'm Gonna Love Me Again' for Rocket Man, while back in 1995, the 72-year-old won for 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' in Lion King.
