Lin-Manuel Miranda Says So Much More Than ‘Thank You’ During His Acceptance Speeches
History has its eyes on Lin-Manuel Miranda, and he constantly delivers.
The “Hamilton” creator is known to win things ― he nearly MacPEGOT’d at the Oscars this year (but lost Best Original Song to “City of Stars” from “La La Land”) ― and his victory speeches are nothing but net.
Never one to shy away from making a statement, Miranda has addressed everything from love and immigration to “senseless acts of tragedy” as he rapped or sonneted his way through a moment.
Now, the lyricist, composer and playwright is taking part in the Facebook telethon Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union on Friday, March 31. The event will stream live on The Huffington Post and Funny or Die Facebook pages, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
