While the latest addition to the Spider-Man franchise gained over $1.7 billion in earnings globally, becoming the biggest box office hit since the start of the pandemic, it couldn’t make those box office records into awards gold.
However, the movie—which has the three Spideys Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield, and Tobey Maguire as stars portraying Peter Parker—did end up as an Oscar nominee for Best Visual Effects.
“No Way Home” was always a hundred-to-one shot in the Best Picture Category; a comic book bouncing to a multiverse isn’t really a standard Academy fare. Even in recent years, only a few superhero films have gained traction in a major Oscar award besides the conventional technical categories.
The first ever Marvel movie to secure a Best Picture nomination is “Black Panther” (2018), and DC preceded with “Joker” (2019). In 2019, Miles Morales, another Spidey, snagged an Oscar with “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” for Best Animated Feature Film.
Even then, following “No Way Home” swinging to the box office summit and slinging in outpouring good reviews, a few fans and awards enthusiasts thought that these would lead up to awards recognition.
But there is still a great deal of celebrating to be done in the multiverse: “No Way Home” will contend in the Best Visual Effects category, together with MCU’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
The film earned a good amount of praise and titles, while the cast individually earns attention from the Oscars. Garfield is a Best Actor nominee for his latest Netflix Originals “Tick, Tick… Boom!” On the other hand, Spidey costar Benedict Cumberbatch snagged a Best Actor nomination for “The Power of the Dog” as well. J.K. Simmons, who is casted in the movie as J. Jonah Jameson, also secured a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “Being the Ricardos.”
