Oscars 2017: La La Land Wins Best Song, Depriving Lin-Manuel Miranda Of EGOT

Lin-Manuel Miranda has three Tony awards for In The Heights and Hamilton, one Best Musical Theater Album Grammy for each, and an Emmy for composing the opening number of the Tony Awards in 2013. If “How Far I’ll Go,” his Oscar-nominated song for Moana, had won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards tonight, he would’ve been the 13th and youngest EGOT winner ever. But alas, the La La Land train proved unstoppable, with La La Land repeating its domination at the Golden Globes and taking home the trophies for both Best Score and Best Original Song (for “City Of Stars”). Oh well — I think Lin-Manuel will probably be OK.
