He has won multiple Tony awards and is now a major movie star, but Lin-Manuel Miranda has truly made it now he's been immortalized at the Minnesota State Fair.

The "Hamilton" creator and star was the subject of a crop art entry by Linda Paulsen, of Hackensack, at the recently-ended State Fair.

Although Miranda was in the U.K. and thus unable to see his likeness in seed form personally, it was brought to his attention upon his return to the U.S., prompting the following tweet on Thursday.

It was a blue ribbon winner too, so you can add that to Miranda's ever-growing list of accolades.

It prompted a flood of replies from his followers, predictably many of them Minnesotans looking to share in his admiration of a State Fair staple.

"This is an official Minnesota Hall Pass," Kevin Murphy tweeted. "You are welcome anywhere, any time. Fish Fry is every Friday. Meat Raffle is every other Thursday at the Legion Hall."
