Lin-Manuel Miranda Performs A Freestyle Song ‘OK Boomer’ And It’s A Hit

There are seldom things to get overly excited about these days but people are still trying to make us all laugh. Conan O’Brien has been doing shows from his home like so many other late show hosts and even “Saturday Night Live.” Thankfully, Lin-Manuel Miranda recently joined O’Brien and it was magic.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Conan O’Brien “collaborated” on a new song and it is already a hit.

“OK Boomer” was born out of two things: O’Brien being able to talk about his day in great detail and Miranda’s musical genius abilities and willingness to listen. At the beginning of the video, Miranda asks O’Brien to tell him about his day. O’Brien delivers a very detailed account of his day and in the end, Miranda took that information and gave us “OK Boomer.”

“OK, Boomer. When are you gonna leave home? I go to the Zoom, I enter the room,” Miranda sings. “I want to see if I look cute and if I can temporarily unmute with the space bar. So, I ask my son, ‘Hey, do I hit the f—ing space bar?’ And he says to me, ‘OK, Boomer.'”

The songs bring the two grown men to fits of laughter and it is clear why. The song is as ridiculous as you need to find some humor during these crazy times. It also shows that not even a quarantine can break the human spirit.

Fans are already loving the song because of what it is about.

The comedy of the song is enough to make people laugh and forget their issues for a short while. Who else doesn’t feel like their life has become so mundane that it is hard to find some humor? Miranda is there to show us all that there are things that will still make you smile and laugh.

Some people want to let it get them through the day.

Just listen to it once all the way through. It is a song that doesn’t get to wild and is hard to get annoyed with. It will make you laugh and smile. It truly shows the selflessness that Miranda embodies on his day-to-day.

Some people just wish they could be as comforted by Miranda.

For people isolating alone, it can be very lonely. With no one to talk to, it is easy to feel so disconnected from the world because we are all just tucked away in our spaces. Imagine being able to talk to Miranda and have him listen to you so intently that he sings you a song that captures what you said. Wouldn’t that just make you feel so seen?

Thank you, Lin-Manuel Miranda.

You are a small piece of the puzzle that helps us make sense and find peace in this whole mess.

Solomon Ray is one of the hottest artists in music right now. The young man is delivering music and lewks that we didn’t know we needed. Let’s take a moment to admire the artist who si giving us some new music.

This is Solomon Ray and he is not shy about showing off who he is.

One of the most iconic quotes from Juan Gabriel and it still rings true today. How many times has someone in your family asked about your sexuality? Like, obviously it is what you suspect it to be so why the third-degree, tía?

He’s a Britney stan, which is still so very important.

She might have one of the most bizarre Instagram accounts ever created, but that’s just part of her. Britney is an American treasure and should be protected and honored at all times no matter what. It’s a good thing that Ray understands the importance of loving the pop icon.

He knows how to give you all of those rancho vibes.

Those chains against the hairy chest are really just everything. Honestly, we should be thanking him for being able to serve us such diverse lewks. We should aspire to have a man that can do both.

Ray even does the thing when he is at work.

Just like mami always said, “You can never be overdressed.” Mom instilled in us the importance of always being well put together no matter what. We dress up to hang out in the living room to hang out when the family comes over. Seems like Ray would be the perfect man to bring around.

Look at him being all chill with Mariah Carey.

Like, we get it. You have famous friends and know people who are just incredibly awesome. Well, if you do know Mariah Carey, let’s go ahead and plan a dinner date. You know, for networking.

‘Hamilton’ Won’t Be Eligible For An Academy Award Next Year

‘Hamilton’ Won’t Be Eligible For An Academy Award Next Year

For years Hamilton has been lauded as a Broadway breakout hit. Having racked up a record-setting 16 nominations at the 2016 Tony Awards, Hamilton and ultimately taking home 11 awards, including Best Musical. The musical also won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. So when it was announced a filmed version of the stage production would be launched on Disney+ many wondered if the play would be a winner that would take all at the 2021 Academy Awards.

Unfortunately, it looks as if that beam of fan hope won’t be happening.

Despite the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ decision to temporarily change its rules to allow movies that originally planned theatrical runs to be eligible for Best Picture nomination, Hamilton will not be a contender.

The change, which came as a result of coronavirus concerns, altered rules which required movies distributed by streaming platforms to play in movie theaters for a minimum of seven days to meet nomination requirements.

Unfortunately, the updated rule excludes Hamilton. Language added to the Academy Awards guidelines in 1997 bars recorded stage performances from taking home nominations.

The addition to the 1997 rule was spurred by a performance by Sir Laurence Olivier who received a Best Actor nomination in 1966 for his blackface portrayal of Othello in a “hybrid stage/film production.” from According to People, James Whitmore also received a nomination 10 years later in the same category for his role as Harry S. Truman in a recorded version of Give ’em Hell, Harry!

Vulture confirmed recently that “as a recorded stage production, Hamilton is not eligible for awards consideration.”

Fortunately, Hamilton will be eligible for an Emmy nomination if it adds its name to the outstanding variety special (pre-recorded) category.

Hamilton is streaming now on Disney+.
