Lin-Manuel Miranda definitely did not throw away his shot!
The Hamilton star and creator has added yet another accomplishment to his list: He was named Entertainer of the Year by the Associated Press, beating such celebrities as Adele, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and even Beyonce herself for the title!
“There’s been more than a little good luck in the year itself and the way it’s unfolded. I continue to try to work on the things I’ve always wanted to work on and try to say yes to the opportunities that I’d kick myself forever if I didn’t jump at them,” Miranda told the AP.
Lin is currently filming the sequel to Disney’s Mary Poppins titled Mary Poppins Returns as well as working on a television and film adaptation of The Kingkiller Chronicle. He also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song for “How Far I’ll Go” which he composed for Disney’s Moana.
