Andrew Garfield Talks ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Oscar Snub
What was clearly one of the best movies of the year has gone with very little appreciation from the Academy, as Andrew Garfield talks about the Spider-Man: No Way Home Oscar snub.
Sony and Marvel crafted what has clearly become the most successful film of the pandemic era, as Spider-Man: No Way Home has established itself as the record-breaking installment of the MCU’s Spider-Man saga.
Bringing back villains and alternate reality versions of the iconic character, Spider-Man: No Way Home felt like a celebration of the character’s 20-year history on the big screen and stood out as one of the best Peter Parker stories ever told.
With Marvel Studios clearly seeking to reach the ultimate filmmaking achievement of an Academy Award for the latest film, it has been revealed that Spider-Man: No WAy Home- and it’s MCU Phase four predecessor, Shang-Chi- each has a single Oscar nomination for 2022.
One of the stars of the film, Andrew Garfield– reprising the role he said goodbye to six years ago in one of the most iconic returns in Marvel history- spoke on the Oscar Snub with a little hesitancy.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Garfield gave his honest opinion on why Spider-Man: No Way Home is so important.
I’m not able to comment on that, particularly. I really love that movie and I really love Amy [Pascal] and Jon [Watts] and Kevin [Feige] and, obviously Tom [Holland], and Zendaya and Jacon [Batalon] and Tobey [Maguire] and all the cast.
That movie has been a kind of juggernaut of proportions that i don’t think any of us really expected.
I can only speak fo myself and i just feel grateful to be a part of something that is keeping cinemas alive right now, keeping cienams full, and helping in that regard and making sure that the live ex[perience or the communal experience of going to the movies remains intact.
Its very, very cool to see audiences still deeply longing for the thing that i know that we’re all deeply longing for. I think Spider-Man is obviously one of those movies right now and that’s so cool, and I’m so, so grateful to be a part of that.
Although the film did get an Oscar snub, it has clearly been adored by fans and has thrived at the box office; which speaks to Garfield’s point, the film has saved an industry devastated by the pandemic.
