Tom Holland is ready to host the Oscars if Zendaya is his co-host
Since its December 17th release, Spider-Man: No Way Home has made waves and broken records.
Dubbed one of the best Marvel movies of all time, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has a fresh 94% rating and a 99% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Many reviewers have given the superhero film a thumbs up for its exquisite blend of humor and action, and this has been reflected in staggering box office revenues.
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” broke pandemic records
As previously reported by The Blast, âSpider-Man: No Way Homeâ exceeded all expectations and grossed a whopping $ 253 million on the opening weekend.
On the Friday it premiered, the film grossed $ 121.5 million, earning the title of the second largest opening day of all time after Avengers: Endgame.
Among the numerous post-pandemic films released, the Marvel superhero film ranks as the highest opening record. Internationally, âSpider-Man: No Way Homeâ generated US $ 334.2 million from 60 countries, which corresponds to worldwide sales of US $ 587.2 million.
All of these records suggest that Spider-Man: No Way Home is a great movie, but is it Oscar worthy?
Tom Holland thinks Spider-Man is Oscar-worthy
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Holland, the title character of “Spider-Man,” spoke about the possibility that the film will make it to next year’s Oscar nominations despite its usual exclusion from superhero films. Holland said:
I’ve made Marvel films and I’ve also made films that were talked about in the Oscars world and the only difference really is that one is way more expensive than the other. But the way I break down the character, the way the director cuts the arc of the story and the characters – it’s all the same, just on a different scale. So I think they are real art.
Holland was referring to fellow Marvel colleagues Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson, and Robert Downey Jr., who all made superhero and Oscar-worthy films. âThey’ll tell you they’re the same, just on a different scale. And there is less spandex in ‘Oscar films’, âsaid Holland.
“The Impossible” actor would love to host the Oscars
On the subject of the Oscars, Holland raised the issue of hosting the prestigious award ceremony. When asked by the interviewer, the 25-year-old remarked that he was too busy with the âUnchartedâ promotional tour and other film projects at the moment.
âSo maybe one day in the future. But no, not now. To be honest, I just don’t have the time, âsaid Holland. Minutes later, however, the British actor took his words back and expressed his excitement about hosting the Oscars.
Of course I would host the f-king Oscars! ‘ I just went into the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror and thought, ‘What fucking idiot wouldn’t host the Oscars?
When asked if he would like to go alone or have a co-host, Holland indicated that he would love to work with his co-star and girlfriend, Zendaya. He quipped, âAlone would be great, and it would be even better with someone I love. I think a shared experience is always better than a solo experience. “
If he could convince Zendaya to be his co-host, Holland promised to try but gave no assurance.
