The Marvel blockbuster was released to huge success late last year, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2021 and sixth-highest grossing of all time.
Sony Studios subsequently initiated a campaign to get the film an Academy Award for Best Picture, but ultimately only landed a Visual Effects nomination.
In a new interview with The Daily Telegraph about the supposed “snub”, Garfield was asked how he felt about the film not being recognised for Best Picture.
“I don’t know. I mean, it’s the sixth biggest movie in the history of movies. Making a film that a gajillion people want to see together is a miracle. Making a film that an awarding body loves is also a miracle,” he said.
“Sometimes those miracles overlap, and sometimes they don’t. But I personally feel pretty satisfied with the audience response. I think that’s plenty,” he added.
Speaking further of this year’s awards, in which he landed a Best Actor nomination for his role in Tick, Tick… Boom!, Garfield added: “Honestly, how some people vote is none of my business.”
“I think they acknowledged some great people. But do I think Olivia Colman gave one of the best performances of the year? Yes, I do.”
