"I don't know if they ran out of time, or if there was something about the segment they didn't like," she said. "It got pulled so quickly that we didn't have a lot of insight into what was going on."
Garfield did not take part in the show. The New York Post reported that the segment was dropped after Garfield and the show's producers clashed over the segment, after which the academy paid for Miles and his family to go to
An academy spokesperson provided a statement to E! News that said, "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." The statement added, "Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott [Batkid] and his family."
