Miranda posted the news on Twitter, saying that he’ll be self-isolating due to his wife, Vanessa Nadal, testing positive for the virus. Fortunately, he and his children have so far received negative results but are skipping the ceremony to err on the side of caution.
Miranda is nominated for his second Oscar tonight, thanks to his work on Encanto‘s “Dos Oruguitas”, which is nominated for Best Original Song.
Celebrities have been reaching out to Miranda to wish him well, with Mark Hamill replied to Miranda’s post, saying that the Oscars are “twice much more fun from home”. Actress Kristen Schaal also replied to the post, wishing for Miranda to have a good night even if he’s watching from home.

Tick Tick Boom is up for two awards tonight, with Andrew Garfield earning a nomination for Best Actor, as well as the film receiving a nod for Best Film Editing. Meanwhile, Encanto is nominated for Best Animated Feature, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song with “Dos Oruguitas”.
If “Dos Orugitas” does take out the award, singer-songwriter Sebastián Yatra has expressed his intent to hug fellow Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio if he wins the award.
