The 2022 Academy Award nominations are in, and Netflix’s adaptation of the late Jonathan Larson’s rock monologue, tick, tick…BOOM!, has received a nomination under the Best Editing category. The film will go up against Don’t Look Up, Dune, King Richard, and The Power of the Dog for the category.
Andrew Garfield also received a nomination under the Best Actor in a Leading Role category for his performance as Larson in the film.
tick, tick…BOOM! marks the directorial debut for Grammy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. Written for the stage by Jonathan Larson originally as a rock monologue and penned for the screen by Steven Levenson, tick, tick…BOOM! tells the story of Jon (Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer in New York City. Jon, much like many others in the big city, dreams of writing the next great American musical. Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a performance that could launch his career or destroy it, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere, especially those close to him. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and must figure out what he, like all of us, must do with the time given to him.
tick, tick…BOOM! is available to stream on Netflix now.
