Shameik Moore posts a disappointed response to Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’s surprising loss in a major Oscars category.


  • Shameik Moore believes Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was “robbed” of the Best Animated Feature Oscar.
  • Online fans express disappointment with the loss, showing support for Moore’s sentiments.
  • Despite the upset, fans remain devoted to Miles and Gwen’s story, declaring the sequel a winner in their hearts.



Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse lead actor Shameik Moore has taken to in the wake of the Spider-Man animated sequel losing the Best Animated Feature to The Boy And The Heron at the 2024 Oscars. The Marvel actor offered a quick-fire response to the unexpected loss, 6 years after Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse won the same award.

The Miles Morales voice actor said Across The Spider-Verse was “robbed” before following up to admit he was a sore loser, but qualified that the movie touched so many lives that it didn’t actually lose. Ahead of the upcoming trilogy-ender Beyond The Spider-Verse, he also added a positive note of hype.

Meanwhile, writer and producer of Across The Spider-Verse, Christopher Miller shared his own reaction, praising The Boy And The Heron‘s director, the visionary Hayao Miyazaki:

Spider-Verse Fans React On X To Oscar Loss

Moore’s initial reaction has been mirrored by the considerable online sentiment from Across The Spider-Verse fans on, with a consensus that the sequel should have won. Given the fact that Into The Spider-Verse won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, and was similarly lauded with just 2% more on Rotten Tomatoes (97% to Across The Spider-Verse‘s 95%), it was perhaps considered a slam dunk for the sequel to win. That explains the heightened reactions from fans bemoaning the loss…

On a night otherwise mostyl dominated by the favorites winning all of the Oscar categories, it is perhaps understandable that the word “robbed” appeared a lot immediately after the announcement of the winner.

Like Shameik Moore’s reaction, the disappointment was dotted with some counter-balancing praise for Miyazaki, whose The Boy And The Heron is expected to be his last feature film after an illustrious career.
