Spider-Man: No Way Home was officially released on 16th December 2021, and fans are wondering if Tom Holland can bag an Oscar nomination with his brilliant performance. The MCU has now ventured into the multiverse, opening countless possibilities to explore in future titles.

Despite Spider-Man: No Way Home being one of the biggest blockbusters of 2021, Tom Holland's phenomenal performance as the web-slinger will perhaps not be enough to earn him a spot in the Oscar nominations.

Tom Holland will win an Oscar, have no doubt about that folks, just not as Spider-Man or in a comic book superhero movie.

Fans enjoyed Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it's not about fan love. This is about how the actor performed and whether the movie was objectively good.

Peter Parker is not on a holy moral mission, he is a confused teenager who is struggling to maintain the working-class superhero persona. Tom Holland has his moments of sheer maturity in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but its brevity makes the emotion ephemeral and superficial. Almost all the problems faced by the protagonist are turned into a plot device to explain the overly complicated nature of the multiverse.

While a section of the community believes that Tom deserves that Oscar nomination, some others claim that he had a better chance of getting it for "The Devil All The Time."

Tom's mature performance in the psychological thriller showed his true range as an actor. It is perhaps difficult to emulate that range of emotional maturity as a superhero character like Spider-Man. Nevertheless, Spider-Man: No Way Home is by far the best superhero movie in a long time, and perhaps the only one that can be compared to Avengers: Endgame.

Do you think Tom Holland really deserves an Oscar for his performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home? Did Spider-Man: No Way Home take it too far with fan service?
