Oscars cancel ‘Batkid’ segment, Spiderman saves the day


‘Batkid’ was funded by the Make-a-Wish Foundation and saw 5 year-old Miles Scotts’ dream of being Batman for a day come true.

Miles is recovering from lymphoblastic leukaemia. The entire city of San Francisco got involved and even President Barack Obama had a role. See the video above.

‘Batkid’ was supposed to be honoured at this year’s Oscars ceremony.

When the producers of Sunday’s Oscars ceremony were forced to cancel Batkid’s segment, no one was more upset that Andrew Garfield.

It was arranged that Miles and his family would go to Disneyland where Andrew drove down to meet them.

The Academy have taken full responsibility for the unfortunate event saying: “Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production.”

It is not known if this incident has anything to do with Emma Stone’s unexplained absence at the awards ceremony.
