‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Oscar nominee interviews: Andrew Garfield and more [WATCH]

It goes without saying that no one has had a better comeback story this awards season than Mel Gibson with “Hacksaw Ridge.” His WWII epic about a U.S. Army Medic (Andrew Garfield) who served during the Battle of Okinawa while refusing to carry a weapon snagged six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor. Garfield recently sat down with Gold Derby to discuss his role in the film.
