Singer and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda has earned high accolades over his extensive career – including a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur Genius Grant, and an EGOT (not to mention an Academy Award nomination) – but he’ll have one more honor to add to his growing list: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Among the list of 2018 honorees was Weird Al Yankovic, who tweeted this out on the day of the honoree posting:

Miranda first gained enormous popularity after the debut of Hamilton, the hit musical which he wrote and starred in, and continued that fame with his Oscar nomination for his song “How Far I’ll Go” in the Disney animated film Moana earlier this year.
He’ll also be appearing alongside Emily Blunt in the Mary Poppins sequel Mary Poppins Returns in December 2018. Furthermore, he’ll be collaborating with the legendary Alan Menken on a musical adaptation of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
