Marvel actor Andrew Garfield can do it all. The superhero can act, write, dance, sing, and sing. The latter half led him to his first Golden Globe win:

This is Garfield’s third Golden Globe nomination, with The Social Network (2010) and Hacksaw Ridge (2016) previously earning him two nominations.

Surprisingly enough, Tick, Tick… Boom! (2021) earned the Marvel character actor his first Golden Globe win, but many fans felt he earned awards years ago for the previously mentioned films (especially The Social Network):

OMG this is Andrew Garfield’s MOMENT!! first NWH and now this. Next stop Oscars!

It seems that every Marvel fan is campaigning for Garfield to earn the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role at this year’s Oscars. Given previous Oscar snags, actors who earned a Golden Globe in a significant category like Andrew Garfield typically win the Oscar as well (at the least a nomination!).

Unfortunately, the Golden Globes were not broadcast live, so fans aren’t able to see any acceptance speech from Andrew Garfield.

Though Andrew Garfield stole the show in Spider-Man: No Way Home with Tobey Maguire when their iconic Marvel characters swung into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the Multiverse, it’s Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tick, Tick… Boom! that’s garnering Garfield’s Golden Globe gain!

Here’s an official synopsis of Tick, Tick… Boom!:

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with tick, tick…BOOM!, an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who revolutionized theater as the creator of Rent. The film follows Jon (Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical. Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have? tick, tick…BOOM!
