Andrew Garfield was just nominated for his first Oscar for his work in Hacksaw Ridge, but he already knows whom he’s bringing to the big show and shared with E! News.
“I think I’m going to bring my dad out,” Garfield tells me. “I think it’s something he’d love to share with me. It’s a big deal for him and he’s the one who made me fall in love with movies when I was a kid.”
Will there be a repeat of Garfield’s same-sex celebrity kissing at the Oscars à la his recent lip-locks with Ryan Reynolds and Stephen Colbert?
“It depends on who they sit me next to,” he said, laughing. “If they’re smart they’ll sit me next to someone that I’m attracted to.” And who would that be, Mr. Garfield? He laughed again, “In that room, I don’t think there are many misses.”
“It’s f–king crazy,” Garfield said when I note that his Oscar competition includes Denzel Washington. “What do I do? It’s that weird feeling of, ‘When are they going to find me out?'”
Also, Marc Malkin tries hard to get him to focus during an interview about Silence and he could’nt stop laughing. Check out:

Andrew Garfield has been busy this past year, delivering performances in two of the year’s best movies, “Silence” and “Hacksaw Ridge.” The critical acclaim of his turn in the Mel Gibson-directed picture nabbed him an Oscar nomination Tuesday morning for best actor. Shortly after the announcement, Garfield spoke with The Times from London about the recognition:
Where are you now?
I’m in London rehearsing a play, “Angels in America,” at the National Theater on the South Bank in London. I just finished my first morning rehearsal and went to lunch at the canteen and my agent called me screaming. I kind of assumed it was a good scream.
This is your first Oscar nomination. How does it feel?
I’m still feeling it—I can’t describe it really. All actors, before they know they want to be actors, even people who aren’t actors, fantasize about winning an Oscar. The best thing that can happen is to have someone affected by the work you’re doing. I feel very deeply reassured that I’m on the trajectory that I’m supposed to be on. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be with my life at this point. If there was any doubt in my mind —and there’s always a lot — the academy members, whose opinion I value, seem to think I’m on the right track.

Andrew Garfield phoned in to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb from Today Show to talk about his just-announced Best Actor Oscar nomination for the biodrama “Hacksaw Ridge,” in which he plays Desmond Doss, who saved the lives of 75 wounded men during the Battle of Okinawa. He says Doss “lived a life of love, of humility and compassion” and is a “symbol of what the world needs right now.”
“It was lunchtime that the nominations happened. I came into the National Theatre canteen, got my little tuna salad and tried to figure out what was happening on Twitter. But before I could do it my agent was calling me. I thought, ‘Why the (hell) is she calling me? She should know that the nominations were about to happen!’ ” He laughs. “I answered to say I can’t talk right now. But then she was screaming so I thought, ‘Oh! Something good must have happened.”
“I’m really excited for him,” says Garfield. “Obviously, I know Mel in a personal way, and I know that period of time has haunted him for the past 10 years. I think people are finally starting to let go of (it), as he has. He’s moved on from it, he’s done so much work internally with himself and externally with those he needed to do it with, healing work, and that I admire maybe more than anything. He’s showing up as himself, at work and in the world,” Garfield continues. “And it’s a beautiful thing. He’s a gift to filmmaking. So this has been a long time coming for him.”
And yes, Garfield has seen a picture of Gibson’s new baby. Gibson welcomed his ninth child, a boy named Lars Gerard Gibson, with girlfriend Rosalind Ross over the weekend. “He sent me a lovely picture of the mother and the baby and everyone is healthy and happy,” says Garfield.
Garfield’s celebration plans?
“I’m just organizing to see my friends for a drink tonight to have a little bit of a celebration,” he says. “It’s my second day of rehearsing the play that I’m doing, so there’s a lot going on.”

The star of Hacksaw Ridge and Silence joins the Little Gold Men podcast to reveal how he found real Hollywood friends, how he survives the hubbub of awards season, and what Mel Gibson did to make his way back into the center of the industry.
He may not have taken the stage to win a statue for his nominated performance in Hacksaw Ridge, but Andrew Garfield had two moments at Sunday‘s Golden Globes that had everyone talking the next day. First there was the liplock, barely caught by the camera, he shared with Deadpool nominee Ryan Reynolds, just as Ryan Gosling took the stage for his own award. And then, when Gosling’s La La Land co-star Emma Stone won her own statue, Garfield was seen giving her a standing ovation—notable, given that Stone is his ex.
“We care about each other so much, and that’s a given, that’s kind of this unconditional thing,” he says on this week’s Little Gold Men podcast. “There’s so much love between us and so much respect [. . .] I’m her biggest fan as an artist. So for me, it’s been bliss to be able to watch her success and watch her bloom into the actress that she is. And it’s also been wonderful to have that kind of support for each other. It’s nothing but a beautiful thing.”
Garfield also tells hosts Mike Hogan, Richard Lawson, and Katey Rich about the various challenges of awards season and a life in Hollywood, where it’s very easy to “look for love in all the wrong places,” as Garfield puts it. Luckily, the guidance of everyone from Mike Nichols to Jonah Hill has helped him stay grounded. At the Golden Globes, he says, “I was overwhelmed that I had such sincere, authentic Hollywood friends. Which I don’t think is a common occurrence. I had about seven or eight real, true anchors in that room and in the parties following. Emma of course is one, Claire Foy is another, Laura Dern. Eddie Redmayne, Jonah Hill . . . these are people that I actually love in a real, sincere way, and I believe they love me back. I was just struck with this deep gratitude.”
