EGOT WATCH DESK: Lin-Manuel Miranda (currently at EGT, and likely to rack up several more Tonys this year with Hamilton) is writing songs for Disney's upcoming Moana. Assuming he wins an Oscar in 2017, that would put him at winning all four awards in 9 years, beating Robert Lopez for fastest EGOT, and if he wins a Pulitzer for Hamilton, would make him only the third person (after Marvin Hamlisch and Richard Rodgers) to EPGOT. He does face opposition from Sara Bareilles, whose Waitress will transfer from Boston to Broadway in the Spring--although she's been nominated for multiple Grammys including both Song and Album of the Year, has yet to win one.
