to say that Spider-Man: There is no room for home Success may be to reduce things. Tom Holland’s third solo hike as web header is a file Multiverse fracture hit It is currently expected to cross $1 billion at the box office by the end of the weekend. But that’s not enough for Marvel, whose films this year have been mostly good Box office successes. They want gold, baby, they want…Oscar!

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios and Sony President Tom Rothman believes the film deserves a chance to earn a Best Picture nomination, which has only been done once previously with Black Panther At the Oscars 2019. (lost to green book That year, she inspired her star, Mahershala Ali, To ask Marvel if can be dull.) Rothman has argued that There is no place for home The box office success and being a “great movie industry” can’t be ignored coming awards season. “It’s really hard to do high-quality business… and that’s what the Academy needs to keep in touch with.” Meanwhile, Feige likened this movie to return of the king, Saying that this movie was a “celebration for us Homecoming trilogy and one of the five other incarnations of Spider Man that happened before.”

Earlier in the month, Feige We talked about How he thought the Academy had a bias toward head-turning films, saying that the studio “always has a deficit because of the Marvel logo and because of the genre bias that surely exists.” It’s a sentiment shared by Rothman and co-producer Aimee Pascal, with the latter stating that all movies matter, even those that have strangely dressed characters hitting each other in them. Furthermore, she is hopeful that since many of the Academy Board members have grown up with Spidey’s previous films, they are more likely to give the film its supposed due. “I think it would be great if the academy got to know all kinds of movies. I hope that since there are 10 guaranteed movies, and since there is a brand new membership, maybe they will.”

To help with this process along, Sony and Marvel are planning to have an active For Your Consideration campaign, from the add-on There is no place for home To the Academy members only live broadcast, to the targeted screenings and interviews that these pandemic times will allow. Previously, Marvel attempted to launch a FYC . campaign Avengers: Endgame, But the Academy said “no” too often outside of its Visual Effects nomination, which it lost to it 1917. Due to some pre-release hype eternity Director Chloe Chow shared as he blew Feige’s mind with hands-on locations and natural lightingIt seems they were hoping who – which One to be their Oscar movie, but then the kind of movie vanished. but with There is no place for home Being box office smashers, maintaining movie theaters around the holidays, and easily delivering what fans want, the two companies are now putting all of their eggs in this basket.

Whether or not you think there’s a bias against superhero movies at the Oscars (there is kind of, at least for the Upper class Awards), studios may have eyes larger than their stomachs on this front. While There is no place for home It’s so good, it doesn’t do anything outside of its own genre over the past decade, and the fact that it’s pre-existing with about a dozen other films doesn’t do anything. The producers and Rothman could argue that There is no place for home It’s about “personal sacrifice” and the “common good,” but it’s a movie that basically exists to sell something – whether it’s the things you remember arguably proudly on the day, or something that will strike in another two years and sell you else Something.

We will find out if the academy accepts or not There is no place for home She deserves to be nominated for non-technical awards, let alone win any, in the coming months. In the meantime, tell us: Do you think the movie is capable or worthy of getting any Oscar, and which one?
