Despite Spider-Man: No Way Home being nominated under the category of Best Visual Effects at the Oscars 2022, fans are upset about its snub from Best Picture. Yesterday, the 94th Academy Awards nominations were out, though a lot of people rejoiced to see their favourite movies and actors on the list, some were left disappointed.
Marvel and Sony promoted the movie massively and pushed it to make amongst voters. Even though the movie has only received one nomination, it has become a blockbuster, which will soon cross Avatar at the highest-grossing films of all time in the US and the sixth in the entire world.
Released in December last year, Spider-Man: No Way Home opened to an amazing weekend and easily climbed up the ladder to become the biggest film of 2021. One of the biggest reasons behind this was the involvement of the former Spideys. For the unversed, not only Tom Holland but Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire appear in the Marvel flick.
Though their appearance was kept a secret, a lot of people started to speculate about it. Tom Holland was also quite enthusiastic about Spider-Man: No Way Home being nominated for Oscars 2022. Now, the fans are taking to Twitter to express their disappointment for the movie to get snubbed from the Best Picture category.
Check out their reaction here:
Yes, I DO feel #SpiderManNoWayHome deserved a Best Picture nod. Same with Endgame.
Problem is, the Academy is run by a buncha 90 year old dinosaurs who don't respect genre movies like comic book, fantasy, sci-fi, etc and don't take them seriously with very few exceptions.

However, a few people didn’t think that the movie deserved the Best Picture nomination.
The only real reason people thought Spider-Man: No Way Home should get a best picture nom is because it made a lot of money. Sorry, but that's a really bad reason to give an award to a movie. https://t.co/qvN9Qge2LE
