Lin-Manuel Miranda followers have been consuming very nicely for the final half a decade plus, and it’s not over but. Six years after Hamilton debuted on Broadway, Miranda’s wildly fashionable musical in regards to the American founding fathers is now nominated for an Emmy Award.
How? As a result of the filmed model of Hamilton, which premiered on Disney+ in 2020, is nominated for a number of Emmys within the “Restricted Collection or Film” class. (And, as Decider’s Josh Sorokach points out, Pals is sort of nominated on the 2021 Emmys. It’s a really bizarre yr on the Emmys.)
One in all Hamilton‘s nominations features a nod for Mr. Miranda himself, who, alongside along with his castmate Leslie Odom Jr., is nominated for Excellent Lead Actor in a Restricted Collection or Film. Understanding that Miranda’s genius stretches throughout many mediums, some followers may be questioning: If the composer wins the Emmy for Hamilton on the 2021 Emmy Awards, does that imply Lin-Manuel Miranda goes to have an EGOT—aka, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony? Properly, not fairly.
Will Lin-Manuel Miranda EGOT for Hamilton on the 2021 Emmy Awards?
Sadly, no. Even when Miranda wins for Hamilton on the Emmys tonight, the composer really already has an Emmy award for Excellent Unique Music and Lyrics for co-writing the music “Larger!” with Tom Kitt for the 67th Tony Awards. Miranda additionally has three Grammy Awards (for In The Heights, Hamilton, and “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana), and three Tony Awards. The one award Miranda is lacking is the Oscar.
Miranda got here near his EGOT goals when “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana was nominated for an Academy Award in 2016, but it surely finally misplaced to “Metropolis of Stars” from La La Land. He’ll have one other shot this yr if In The Heights is nominated on the Oscars for Finest Track, which it nearly absolutely can be, in addition to if the upcoming musical that Miranda is directing, tick, tick… BOOM! will get any Oscar love.
On high of that, Miranda additionally gained the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Hamilton in 2016, which means that if (when) Miranda does win an Oscar, he’ll even have a PEGOT. Solely two artists have achieved such an accomplishment: Richard Rodgers, and Marvin Hamlisch.
It gained’t be tonight that Miranda makes historical past, however that doesn’t imply you shouldn’t root for him. In any case, two Emmy Awards is nothing to sneeze at!
