Lin-Manuel Miranda And His Mom At The Oscars Was The Cutest Thing We Saw Last Night

Last night, everybody was hoping Lin-Manuel Miranda would take home the Oscar for Best Original Song and become the youngest person ever to achieve EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Unfortunately, those dreams were dashed when “La La Land”‘s “City Of Stars” by Justin Hurwitz, Justin Paul and Benj Pasek took the honor. But don’t feel bad for Miranda. Even though he didn’t reach EGOT status, Miranda appeared to have the time of his life at the 89th Academy Awards.

Lin-Manuel Miranda gave everyone a taste of his Oscars journey Sunday morning with this “cheeky” picture.


Well, good morning to you too, Lin-Manuel!

Closer to showtime, Miranda started to give fans updates on his ride to the Oscars. ❤️


The two made the same fashion statement: ACLU ribbons.


Miranda also kept things super real by getting his Oscar tux at the same place he got his senior prom tux. #DontForgetWhereYouComeFrom

Miranda and his mother made an adorable red carpet couple.


She looks so happy and proud of her baby boy!

He got a special shout out from Seth Rogen and Michael J. Fox when they presented the award for Best Film Editing. Rogen and Fox sang “The Schuyler Sisters” from “Hamilton”.


And like anyone else in that position, Miranda totally loved it.


?? ?? ??

He also looked hella embarrassed when Jimmy Kimmel called him an “American treasure” and his mom replied, “I know.”


Raise your hand if you’ve ever had to sit there as the adults talk about you. #NoPressure

He gracefully broke the ice and warmed the stage for Auli’i Cravalho to slay as she sang “How Far I’ll Go”.


What can’t this man do?

And, in the end, Miranda did get an Oscar statue…


It’s made of chocolate. He seems just as happy as we would expect him to be.

Oscars: Gael Garcia Bernal is Anti Wall Gael Garcia Bernal: “I’m against any form of wall that wants to separate us.” #Oscars

Posted by The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday, February 26, 2017

Gael García Bernal did so much more than just present an award at the Oscars — he dropped some knowledge.

Before announcing the winner for Best Animated Feature Film, Gael García Bernal and Hailee Steinfeld both shared a few words about the category. While actress Hailee Steinfeld kept her introduction short, Gael García Bernal turned his introduction into a powerful stance on immigration. Considering that all of these films “feature flesh and blood actors,” Gael García made it clear that “as a Mexican, as a Latin American, as a migrant worker [and] as a human being,” he is completely “against any form of wall that wants to separate us.”

People on Twitter applauded Gael García for taking a stance and not letting those 23 seconds go unnoticed.


They were proud of him for taking this opportunity to speak out against the construction of the wall.

They were definitely proud that Gael García used the microphone for more than just a brief award introduction.


He didn’t stay quiet about issues that concerned him, and that’s what people loved about it.

It’s not every day that a Mexican-American is given the opportunity to give a speech at the Oscars.


So if given that opportunity, you’re going to make sure it leaves a mark.

Although Gael García’s speech was not long, people still loved the way in which he delivered his message.


Like many say, “it’s not about quantity, but quality”.

Even with just a few words spoken, people immediately felt touched, inspired and empowered.


So many people could relate to those two sentences he delivered.

Including actress and activist Diane Guerrero, who has always looked up to Gael García Bernal for being such a “Chingon!”.


He is definitely a great example for many.

And these are the type of people who unapologetically support Gael García’s stance 100%.
