Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home won its first major set of awards after the character split from Disney.
The awards in questions are the Saturn Awards, which highlights some of the best work in Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror. At the 45th annual Saturn Awards, which took place on Friday the 13th, Tom Holland and Zendaya were treated with a set of awards. Tom Holland received Best Performance by a Younger Actor for his role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home. He beat stars such as Millie Bobby Brown and Asher Angel.
Zendaya, on the other hand, won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Spider-Man: Far From Home. She even bested Avengers stars Scarlett Johansson and Karen Gillan. Unfortunately, Far From Home lost the Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture and Best Special Effects awards to Avengers: Endgame.
As disappointing as it is that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man won’t be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s fantastic to know that the character is strong enough to hold its own and reel in some major awards. Hopefully, this is the first on many awards that the film gets to get now that it isn’t apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Tom Holland was last seen as Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.
