Andrew Garfield Became A Meme After His Cringe Reaction At The 2023 Oscars

Internet sympathies were sent to Andrew Garfield when his shoutout during Jimmy Kimmel’s opening speech at the Oscars was received with sluggish applause. The fascinating multiverse action thriller Everything Everywhere All at Once won the Best Picture Oscar this year, and Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan both experienced successful comebacks. Michelle Yeoh also won her first Oscar.

Kimmel joked that the slap wouldn’t happen again while he was in charge of the event and provided the names of several celebrities and fictional characters who would defend him from any harm. Then, the cameras focused on Garfield, who was grinning grimly. There was no apparent applause, in sharp contrast to the reception when the other actors were mentioned.null

The audience ultimately reacted to Garfield’s mention with laughs and cheers as he continued to lean into the uncomfortable situation and shrug. Others said that the audience’s lack of response was due to confusion about which heroic figure Kimmel was alluding to. Tom Holland has been the primary live-action Spider-Man since Captain America: Civil War in 2016, despite Garfield reprising the character in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. Of course, fans enjoyed it as well, making memes about it as the event went on. These are the funniest fan reaction from Twitter listed below:
