With this nomination, Miranda is close to capturing the EGOT — the prestigious title for those who've won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony. At 37, he'd be the youngest person to achieve such an impressive feat.

He'd be following in the footsteps of EGOT winners like Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, Liza Minelli, and others.

Miranda has some stiff competition, especially since two songs from La La Land were nominated as well. But people are still rooting for Lin.

And while there is a severe lack of Latinos being nominated this year, it's cool that we can see artists like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Rodrigo Prieto (cinematographer) rise above and represent!

Congrats to ALL the Latinos nominated for Oscars this year! Lin Manuel Miranda and Rodrigo Prieto. All both of them… https://t.co/h5kTvGM6D8
