Lin-Manuel Miranda Explains Why He’s Turned Down The Opportunity To Host The Academy Awards

Lin-Manuel Miranda just had a massive year. He put out a movie version of his first musical In The Heights, he was part of writing the music for two original animated musicals and he made his directorial debut with Tick, TickBoom! With that in mind, you’d think he might be in the running to host the Academy Awards this year. As the multi-hyphenate creative has now shared, he has thought it through and the Oscars hosting gig is not for him. 

As Miranda celebrates a fruitful 2021 and the Oscars still on the search for a host, the Hamilton playwright got candid about why you can count him out of fronting Hollywood’s biggest night: 

I have said no in the past. I really don’t think that that’s my skill set. It’s not something I’m comfortable doing, hosting, mainly because I’ve been lucky enough to work with incredible hosts. I’ve written for Neil Patrick Harris, I’ve written his opening numbers and closing numbers for the Tonys. That is a whole other thing. He is a genius at that, he and Hugh Jackman. I actually don’t think… that’s not something I feel confident in.
