“A tech giant, a decorated soldier, a superhero, and now, with his performances in The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Tick, Tick…Boom!, he has proven that he can do, and wear, just about anything.”

Garfield has already been recognised for his role in Tick, Tick…Boom!, winning best actor in a musical/ comedy film at this year’s Golden Globes.

The film, which is Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut, tells the story of Rent creator Larson’s attempt to enter the industry by writing a new musical.

Also to be honoured at the CDG awards are Spider-Man producers Amy Pascal and Rachel O’Connor who will receive the Distinguished Collaborators award.

Oscar nominated costume designer Sharen Davis will become the 24th CDGA Career Achievement honouree.
