The Latest Outrage From Spider-Man: No Way Home Fans Is Getting Pretty Intense

Long before Robert Downey Jr. donned carefully trimmed facial hair and a fancy chest plate to match, there was a time when rage levels bubbling from various fandoms were pretty low. Now, we can't seem to go a month without a fury-infused hashtag or online petition being pushed to let studios know just how gosh-darn outraged they are. Chances are a red mist could be quickly forming now following the recent announcement of this year's Oscar nominations, which is lacking a distinct amount of spider webbing.

While many fans of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" were prepared to not see Marvel's latest box-office monster obtain recognition for the Academy, the film actually did earn a nomination. Along with "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," the action-packed threequel that arrived in December of last year earned a nomination for Best Special Effects, a routine category that comic book films always manage to check the box for. However, "Spider-Man: No Way Home" fans had their eye on another category for the prestigious awards show, and they've been quick to express their outrage that the nomination didn't happen.

Fans are in an uproar over No Way Home missing a Best Picture nomination

As is the natural course of action when things don't go fans' way, Twitter was practically aflame with disappointment that the Academy didn't come to their spider-sense and give "Spider-Man: No Way Home" a nomination for the highly sought after Best Picture award. @TheDenofNerds had their hopes dashed following the announcement (or lack thereof), saying, "maybe I'm just a fanboy, but 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' made me feel things with a crowd few other movies have... I wanted it to get a Best Picture nod."

The snub hurt even more for some, given the other contenders in this year's awards that made the cut. @ruesholland took to Twitter saying, "ain't no way 'Don't Look Up' and 'West Side Story' got a Best Picture nomination but 'No Way Home' didn't? Something's not adding up." The tweet was accompanied by an image of one of the many confused looks "Spider-Man: No Way Home" star Zendaya gives in the current second season of HBO's "Euphoria."

Many other fans on Twitter, such as @zendayasdate, basically said the same thing, noting that they think "No Way Home" is more deserving of a nomination than Adam McKay and Steven Spielberg's films. @REYSKYGOAT even stated that while they're "never the person in favor of the MCU," they don't understand the Academy's choices, saying, "if you seriously think 'Don't Look Up' deserves a Best Picture nomination over 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'..." Turns out, the Academy isn't so in favor of the MCU either.
