Filmmaker, producer and screenwriter Kevin Smith criticizes the Oscars for Spider-Man: No Way Home because film did not receive a nomination in Best Picture category in Oscar Nominations 2022.
Does ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Deserve an Oscars? This has become a big question after the list of nominations for the recent Academy Awards came out. Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home has only been nominated in the Best Visual Effects category. Fans are not liking this decision of Academy Awards. In this context, one more name has been added to those criticizing the Oscars. The producer and director of the film Clerks, Kevin Smith, has condemned this decision of the Academy Awards.
Kevin Smith says in his FatMan Beyond podcast that,
“I would just like to congratulate the good folks who made Spider-Man: No Way Home for the very deserved Best Picture nomination that I’m sure it got, I didn’t read the nods. Marc, tell me that I’m right. […] What the f-ck? They got ten slots, they can’t give one to the biggest f-cking movie of like the last three years? Man, and they’re like ‘Why won’t anyone watch this show?’ Like f-cking make a populist choice, f-ck, man. You got how many slots? Throw in Spider-Man for God’s sakes. Let him swing in there. F-cking poor kid’s always getting crapped on and sh-t, show Peter Parker some f-cking love. I’m not even being facetious, with as many movies as they have nominated for best picture… Kids, the conspiracy is real. I spoke about Spider-Man not being nominated by The Academy and we got tossed off of YouTube. Tie those two things together the truth lies somewhere out there.“
Apparently Tom Holland’s ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ was released on December 17 last year. The film has emerged as the biggest blockbuster in the Covid-19 crisis. The film has grossed $1.778 billion worldwide at the box office and is still in progress. The audience has celebrated Tom Holland’s superhero flick like a festival. Spider-Man: No Way Home has brought back the splendor of barren theaters. The film was not only appreciated by the audience but the critics also liked it a lot. In such a situation, the nomination of Spider-Man No Way Home was made in the Best Picture category.
