Tom Holland recently discussed Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s Oscar chances on the press tour for Uncharted.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has soared at the box office, becoming one of the most successful movies of all time. In addition to the film’s commercial success, No Way Home has earned plenty of critical acclaim, with Sony pushing the film to score some nominations in the major categories at this year’s Oscars. In a recent interview with Kevin McCarthy of FOX 5 Washington DC, Tom Holland spoke about Spider-Man: No Way Home’s chances at the Oscars:

“We’re all incredibly proud of the film. It would obviously be a huge honor if it was nominated for an Oscar, but that’s not how we like to validate ourselves. We like to validate ourselves with the love we receive from the general public, and so far that has been through the roof. So for me, with this film and this character, I’ve already achieved everything I would like to.”

Tom Holland went on to talk about the fan reaction to one of Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s biggest crowd pleasing moments and explained why that’s enough for him:

“You see these fan reactions of Andrew coming through that portal, and I’ve never seen anything like that in the theater before. I’ve never seen that kind of audience reaction. And to be a part of that was so emotional. I can’t watch those videos without getting really, really emotional. At the premiere, I was in floods of tears at the end of that movie. It was a combination of how proud I am of the movie, how great the movie was, how emotional I was about the kind of end of this chapter, and what we’ve all achieved. So whether it is an Oscar movie or not, it sort of has no bearing on me. It would be amazing if it is, but if it’s not, I’m so proud of what [director] Jon Watts has achieved.” 

Here is the synopsis for Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man: No Way Home:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
