With his nomination for “How Far I’ll Go”, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his way closer to the coveted EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Miranda won his first Tony in 2008, his first Grammy in 2009, and an Emmy in 2014. If “How Far I’ll Go” takes home the golden man on February 26th he will become the youngest and the fastest person to win all 4 awards being only 37 and collecting them in only 9 years.
