2014在多伦多影展，Vanity Fair 的影评人Richard Lawson特别喜欢加菲的表演：
Garfield acquits himself beautifully throughout. Like much of the film, his performance is sharp, truthful, unadorned. Given the right push, he could be a dark horse for nominations come awards season.
"99 Homes" has critics raving about Michael Shannon's and Andrew Garfield's performances in the film from writer-director Ramin Bahrani. [省略...] Most critics agree that the film is elevated by stellar performances from Shannon and Garfield.
Andrew Garfield gave one of the year's best performances and you didn't even notice. [省略...] The drama offers a more humanized microscope of the 2008 housing crisis than "The Big Short," which opens next month and gives Steve Carell far better Oscar odds for a far inferior performance. [省略...] Broad Green Pictures, which is distributing the film, seems to have more juice behind Shannon in the supporting realm, but if we can throw our weight behind one dark-horse contender, Garfield is it.
业界标杆 Variety 的奥斯卡评论：
Best Actor: Michael Fassbender, "Steve Jobs" (Runner-up: Andrew Garfield, "99 Homes")
[省略...] Andrew Garfield simply hasn't received his due this year for a moving and at times gut-wrenching portrayal of a son, a father, struggling to keep a roof over his family's head.
觉得加菲是遗珠的影评人真不少，影评网站 http://www.filmspotting.net/ 的创办人可惜他太晚看到《99 Homes》，否则年末某些影评人投票的奖他就投加菲了：
A solid companion to THE BIG SHORT – that I wish I had finished before casting a few critics ballots considering how bereft of compelling performances 'best actor' is this year. The burden of every rationalization and soul-sucking, ethically-dubious choice adds about 10 years to Andrew Garfield's slight frame and boyish face.
A lot of the raves for Ramin Bahrani's drama about the corrupt real estate market have focused on the performances of Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon (as, respectively, a laid-off construction worker and the sinister realtor who hires him to be his right-hand man) and the contemporary relevance of the subject matter. And those things are, indeed, praiseworthy.
From 28 to 31 years of age, Garfield was only the web-slinger. Some think he squandered the promise he showed in Boy A and The Social Network. [省略... 加菲对蜘蛛侠的无力感和遗憾好虐orz]
If 99 Homes is any indication there's no reason to worry. Playing a construction worker who loses his home in the aftermath of the 2008 housing crisis, Garfield is effortlessly affecting as he deals with the shame and grief of losing everything and hitting rock bottom. While he is overshadowed by Michael Shannon's blistering embodiment of "Americana", the movie works because Garfield grounds it with a natural soulfulness that reminded this viewer of Mark Ruffalo at his best.
