With the love and hype everyone’s favorite wall slinger is now experiencing, is recognition at the Oscars that far out of reach?
Spider-Man: No Way Home could be up now in contention for one of Hollywood’s prestigious awards after becoming one of 2021’s most important and record breaking films. The third installment of the Marvel Studios and Sony production starring Tom Holland has already grossed more than $1.3B at the box office. The film currently grossed around $621M domestically and $759M internationally. Along with this huge success came highly positive reviews from critics and fans, not to mention intense hype and promotion.
The return of many past villains – including Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Thomas Haden Church’s Sandman, Rhys Ifans’ The Lizard, and Jaime Foxx’s Electro – added to the excitement, not to mention Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning as respective Spider-Men cementing No Way Home one of the most iconic films of 2021. But nabbing nods at the Oscars might be the biggest surprise yet.
How Do The Oscars Fit Into The Spider-Verse?
Due to the film’s success both critically and box office wise, it’s been rumored that Sony Pictures has already started its Oscars campaign for No Way Home to get a Best Picture nod. It received a Rotten Tomatoes score of 94% with an audience score of 98% due to great writing and performances – especially given Willem Dafoe’s iconic return as Green Goblin, with some saying Dafoe stole the show.
This information comes from a twitter post shared by @mavericksmovies, which contains two images of the final battle of No Way Home along with “For Your Consideration.” It looks like both studios are trying to nab Oscars for No Way Home with high hopes to win best picture. If No Way Home does win any Oscars, it will be the second Marvel Studios film to win one since Black Panther in 2018. Hopefully everyone’s favorite Wall-Crawler can finally make film history and win cinema’s most prestigious award.
