Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Just an Oscar Away From an EGOT

Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Just an Oscar Away From an EGOT

If Lin-Manuel Miranda takes home the prize for best original song at Sunday night's Oscars, he will become the youngest person ever to EGOT: winning Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. The "Hamilton" creator is nominated for writing music and lyrics for the song "How Far I'll Go," from the animated movie "Moana." The term "EGOT" was popularized in an episode of "30 Rock" in which Tracy Morgan's character, Tracy Jordan, dons a diamond-encrusted necklace with the letters EGOT that he says once belonged to "Miami Vice" star Philip Michael Thomas. And, as NBC News reports, Miranda also has a Pulitzer Prize, so technically he has the chance to PEGOT — something only Marvin Hamlisch and Richard Rodgers have achieved. »

Celebrities Launch Pot Brands as California Legalizes Drug

Celebrities Launch Pot Brands as California Legalizes Drug

Country singer Willie Nelson, the children of the late reggae icon Bob Marley and comedian Whoopi Goldberg are just a few of the growing number of celebrities publicly jumping into the marijuana industry and eyeing the California pot market, which is expected to explode after voters legalized the recreational use of weed. Regulators are still scrambling to get California's recreational pot market launched and are racing to issue licenses to growers and sellers by early 2018. Still to be decided is who will receive the first licenses to grow, distribute and sell recreational marijuana. Growers already cleared to sell medical marijuana in California could be the first in line. »

Song and Dance, Protest and Politics to Mingle at Oscars

The 89th Academy Awards should be a very schizophrenic affair: equal parts pomp and politics. The only thing expected to take the stage more often than the frothy front-runner "La La Land" at Sunday's ceremony is protest (and probably some punchlines) over the policies of President Donald Trump. For largely liberal Hollywood, his election has proven a rallying cause-celebre throughout an awards season that has otherwise been a parade of honors for Damien Chazelle's celebrated musical. Just how political things are going to get at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles may be the biggest question of Sunday night's show, to be broadcast by ABC beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST, with red carpet coverage starting earlier. The current forecast for Sunday is only a slight chance of rain, though the inside of the Dolby Theatre is expected to be far stormier. »

The film tells a story about Chiron's journey as a black, gay man living in Liberty City being raised by a mother with a drug addiction. »
