I saw Moana over a week ago and fell in love with the music. It’s definitely the best soundtrack of any Disney movie ever, in my opinion (and I love the 90s movies). If it wins the Oscar for best original score, it will give Lin-Manuel Miranda the four big prizes of the arts: the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. I knew he had also won the Pulitzer prize too, which would give him a PEGOT, and was wondering if anyone had ever done that before. So I did a little research and found that one person had, but Miranda has also been awarded the MacArthur grant, which means if he wins the Oscar, he’ll be the first person in history to have all 6 of those awards.
No wonder I’ve been humming “Shiny” all morning.
