If Tom Holland is this year’s Oscar host, he could very well hand out an award to fellow Spider-Man and good friend Andrew Garfield for his Golden Globe award-winning performance in Tick, Tick… Boom! (2021).

Interestingly enough, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are campaigning for Spider-Man: No Way Home — which has grossed over $1.5 billion globally and currently sits at a historic 8.9 rating on IMDb — to be considered for every Academy Award nomination category, including the prestigious Best Picture.
