The 'Hamilton' Cast Made Lin-Manuel Miranda Cry On The Oscars Red Carpet

“I hate you for making me cry before the Oscars have even started."

Lin-Manuel Miranda shed a tear even before he’d stepped into the Dolby Theater for the Oscars on Sunday night.

The 37-year-old star arrived on the red carpet with his mother, Luz Towns-Miranda, and got a touching surprise from Ryan Seacrest during E!’s Live From the Red Carpet. During their interview, Seacrest revealed a pre-recorded message from the “Hamilton” cast in honor of Miranda’s Oscar nomination for Best Original Song for “How Far I’ll Go.”

Seacrest then asked the “Hamilton” creator to send a message back to the cast.

“I hate you for making me cry before the Oscars have even started,” he responded. “That was amazing. Thank you. Thank you for that. That’s incredible.” 

Awwwwwwwww. 
Awwwwwwwww. 

And it wouldn’t be a Hollywood red carpet without a nod to the current political climate. Miranda, like several stars, arrived on the red carpet wearing a blue ACLU ribbon in solidarity with the American Civil Liberties Union

The Oscar nominee explained why he wore the ribbon in a quote tweeted out by the ACLU. “I’m wearing an ACLU ribbon because they’re fighting incredible fights right now for American ideals,” he said.
