Andrew Garfield Oscars No Show Baffles Fans

When the Academy announced the official list of presenters for the 2014 Oscars, Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield was on the list. A little over a week ago, Entertainment Weekly made a huge deal about an exclusive interview with Oscar Producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan.

In the interview, EW quoted Meron as saying, “Andrew Garfield is going to be part of what we hope is a very moving moment in the show, which will illustrate the theme of how movies have inspired. He is going to induct a new superhero into the fraternity of superheroes.”

Since the induction was played up like it was going to be one of the most memorable moments of the Oscars, this quote got picked up by a number of other news sites including Comicbook.com, TheWire, and Digital Spy.

However, during the actual Oscars, Andrew Garfield didn’t appear as a presenter at all. Chris Evans introduced the movie heroes segment of the Oscars. We’re assuming that Evans was subbing for Garfield, since Evans wasn’t on the original presenters list.

The heroes segment included movie clips from several superhero movies, but no new superhero was inducted into the fraternity of superheroes. Several fans have been turning to social media asking why Garfield and the superhero induction segment did not appear on the show, but no answers have yet been provided.

i really like andrew, but was anybody even checking for him idk

also those random movie segments just made the thing longer and really made little to no sense
lady_mercury 3rd-Mar-2014 01:45 pm (UTC)
They've been showing those genre segments for a few years though.
mistress_f 3rd-Mar-2014 01:47 pm (UTC)
really? i didn't even notice the past few years lol
miwa201 3rd-Mar-2014 01:39 pm (UTC)
who cares. the spiderman movies are so irrelevant (yes i know the first one earned a lot of money, but the sequel has little to no buzz)
grande_latte 3rd-Mar-2014 02:16 pm (UTC)
as much as I'm meh about the reboot I think come premier time it'll do well and the hype is laying low I think cuz captain America is coming out first and that's the one that's getting all the hype rn but Spider-Man will get love soon too
audrey 3rd-Mar-2014 01:41 pm (UTC)
hello this article said the word super hero enough for me to materialize here expecting to see henry cavill's butt where, wheeeerree is it i'll find it where's it hiding
kobewife1 3rd-Mar-2014 01:43 pm (UTC)

You're not missing much tbh.

I watched it a couple days ago and thought it was terrible. :( Like it had all the ingredients to be a good movie but just...wasn't.

don't listen to these heretics. tas was really good. it brought spiderman alive and made peter more relatable. it had everything. the only bad part about it was the score.

the amazing spiderman is good. its easy to watch and has a lighter feeling to it than the TM flims.

It was bad.
lady_mercury 3rd-Mar-2014 01:44 pm (UTC)
The Japanese telecast still labeled Chris Evans as Andrew Garfield I was confused for a moment.
xpirate_queenx 3rd-Mar-2014 01:49 pm (UTC)
As much as I loved the segments, I felt they were a little disjointed. I was kind of hoping superheroes/comic books would get their own montage.
justyourfaceha 3rd-Mar-2014 01:51 pm (UTC)
I swear there were two scenes from Spider-Man in that montage regardless. There wasn't really a need for him to be there.
kwikimart 3rd-Mar-2014 01:52 pm (UTC)
What...you mean the shippers of him and Emma?

No one was checking for him lbr

He was probably in a coke binge and was like 'EXCUSE ME SIS BUT I AM VERY BUSY RN' or eating leaves off a tall tree, idk what giraffes do

I'm only disappointed coz I was hoping to see Emma, he's sucking up all her powers and youth

Hell, even Chris Evans made time to come with his brother and get that good Oscars after-party yayo.

People are checking for Emma even less these days, but it was Jennifer Lawrence that did the sucking.
immaflirt 3rd-Mar-2014 04:41 pm (UTC)
Yeah my interest to Emma just went out bloop like that.
lovebats 3rd-Mar-2014 06:31 pm (UTC)
and margot is coming for them too
soul_amazinn 3rd-Mar-2014 04:46 pm (UTC)
Lol at people still shipping them

or eating leaves off a tall tree

lmfao you need to go IN on these ppl more, i miss it
mrcumberbatch 3rd-Mar-2014 01:58 pm (UTC)
lmao i'm a fan and i completely forgot about that
black_swan87 3rd-Mar-2014 01:59 pm (UTC)
did everyone saying "who's checking for him" not see all the commercials where they said he was going to be there and doing something big?
grande_latte 3rd-Mar-2014 02:13 pm (UTC)
nope. I didn't even know he was supposed to be there until I read this article
knighthowl82 3rd-Mar-2014 01:59 pm (UTC)
The superhero thing was so sad. All men.
tx5mym5 3rd-Mar-2014 03:39 pm (UTC)
Five women. Five. There were more robots. And the POC....thank for adding Bruce Lee and Will Smith, y'all.
orion_black 3rd-Mar-2014 02:04 pm (UTC)
I waited and waited and waited and it never happened

Okay then
latexana 3rd-Mar-2014 02:06 pm (UTC)
I thought it was awful they didnt show Cristopher Reeves in the supehero montage.
And soooo little women. Which I guess was the point of this year's theme.
mandramoddle 3rd-Mar-2014 02:07 pm (UTC)
That's okay, I'd rather much prefer to have seen Chris Evans' gorgeous face instead of Andrew's.
sugar_beach 3rd-Mar-2014 02:21 pm (UTC)
Nice icon
mandramoddle 3rd-Mar-2014 02:22 pm (UTC)
Why, tanx. :D
tx5mym5 3rd-Mar-2014 03:40 pm (UTC)
Totally correct. The right call was made.

Where are all these random Andrew haters coming from? He's a fantastic actor who has been too complacent since Spiderman and has loyal fans as well as comic book fans who prefer his Spidy to Tobey's.

He was probably out walking his dog in New York like he's been doing for the past 2 years.
who_love 3rd-Mar-2014 05:00 pm (UTC)
He's a talented sweetheart and the haters can gtfo tbh
