Elton John and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin have won the Oscar for Best Original Song for 'Rocketman's '(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again'.

"Thank you to Bernie, who has been the constant thing in my life. When I was screwed up, when I was normal, he was always there for me", John said.

"David I love you... Taron Egerton - what a performance."

John, who also performed the Oscar-winning track during Sunday night's televised ceremony, added: "This is a dream for us".
