We’re not saying they’re dropping like flies, but COVID is getting in the way of the Oscars … at least as far as Lin-Manuel Miranda is concerned.
The “Hamilton” mastermind is staying home Sunday night, after his wife tested positive for the virus.
He said … “Made it to Hollywood … This weekend, my wife tested [positive] for COVID. She’s doing fine. Kids & I have tested [negative], but out of caution, I won’t be going to the Oscars tomorrow night.”
Nonetheless, he was cheering on “Cheering for my Tick, Tick… Boom!” … which could end up with some hardware … Andrew Garfield is up for Best Actor.

There are a lot of nervous actors … to gain entry into the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, they have to produce proof of vaccination and not one but 2 negative PCR tests. There are exceptions — performers and presenters don’t have to show proof of vaccination, which is weird, right?
The requirements go way beyond L.A. County Health Dept. guidelines … most of which have been lifted as numbers continue to go down.
