Variety has confirmed with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that “recorded stage productions are not eligible for consideration.”
The Hamilton movie was originally supposed to be released in theaters in October 2021, but Disney decided to put the film on Disney+ to give fans some amazing content while movie theaters are shut down due to the pandemic.
Actor James Whitmore earned a Best Actor nomination at the 1976 Oscars for his performance in a recording of the one-man stage play Give ‘em Hell, Harry, but rules were changed in 1997 to make these types of performances ineligible.
The cast and crew of Hamilton has already been awarded plenty of prizes. The show won 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, as well as a Grammy Award and a Pulitzer Prize.
The Hamilton movie still has a shot at being nominated for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) category. The “the principal host for variety series and the principal host/performer for variety specials are eligible to be entered with the program categories. Secondary performers are not eligible.” This means that Lin-Manuel Miranda will likely be eligible alongside the producers in this category.
