Why? He came this[]close to a nod for The Social Network (2009). Now that he’s back in the prestige game, maybe this historical drama from Martin Scorsese can snag him that first nomination.

Why not? Internal competition with Adam Driver? Garfield’s post-Social Network endeavors – Spidey, anyone? – have hardly impressed.
