Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Can Snap A 13-Year Oscars Cold Streak

  • "Across the Spider-Verse" could be the first animated movie in over a decade to receive a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards.
  • The sequel improves on its predecessor with improved characterization and animation, creating a distinct visual style for each alternate reality.
  • The film deserves a Best Picture nomination for its groundbreaking animation, beloved as both a film and Spider-Man adaptation, and its representation and diversity.
2023’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse could be the first movie in over a decade to receive a specific nomination at the 96th Academy Awards. The film’s predecessor, 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, was a critically acclaimed animated superhero film, managing to be not only a love letter to decades of Spider-Man comic history - and a heartfelt cinematic debut for the Miles Morales version of the web-slinger - but also a groundbreaking film that truly brought the visual language of comic books to the realm of animation. Into the Spider-Verse won an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but Across the Spider-Verse could win a different accolade at the Academy Awards.
The sequel improves on its predecessor in every way, seamlessly continuing the adventures of Miles Morales – by now the only Spider-Man of his reality – and bringing him into unprecedented territory, while elevating Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Woman from supporting character to co-star alongside balancing Across The Spider-Verse's colossal cast. With improved characterization also came improved animation, with Across the Spider-Verse creating a distinct visual style for every alternate reality shown throughout the film’s multiverse-spanning narrative. Considering its improvements over the critically acclaimed Into the Spider-Verse and its overwhelmingly positive reception, Across the Spider-Verse could be nominated for Best Picture.

Across The Spider-Verse Could Be The First Animated Movie To Be Nominated For Best Picture Since Toy Story 3 Only three animated films have ever been nominated for Best Picture. They consist of 1991’s Beauty and the Beast, 2009’s Up, and 2010’s Toy Story 3. The Academy Awards notably introduced the category of Best Animated Feature in the early 2000s, with both Up and Toy Story 3 winning said Oscars in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Should Across the Spider-Verse be nominated for Best Picture in 2024, it would be the first animated movie in 13 years to receive such a nomination.

Why Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Deserves A Best Picture Nomination Although Into the Spider-Verse did not receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture in 2019, this film is groundbreaking for its phenomenal animation and is beloved as both a film and a Spider-Man adaptation, making its Oscar for Best Animated Feature well deserved. Across the Spider-Verse’s many improvements in animation, characterization, and narrative will likely make it at least a nominee for Best Animated Feature, which is itself no light feat. However, the film deserves to also be nominated for Best Picture.
Across the Spider-Verse’s premise may be supermassive in scale, but the growth and personal struggles of Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy (and their respective parents) are as small and intimately human as Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Society is all-encompassing. Across the Spider-Verse also builds on the phenomenal diversity and representation of its predecessor, even intertwining it with its animation, with Gwen Stacy’s universe reflecting her allyship of the transgender community and Gwen herself arguably being coded as transgender. For this, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse ought to be the first animated film in 13 years to receive a Best Picture nomination.
