Conscientious objector Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield) enlists as an Army Medic during World War II and becomes the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot. "It’s about a man who is finally honed and going to the beat of a different drummer, like a salmon swimming upstream against the tide of war and violence", director Mel Gibson told us. "At the worst place on Earth, in the hell of war, when most men descend to the levels of an animal, this guy hones his own level of spirituality, and is able to display love." Hacksaw Ridge has two additional nominations: Best Director (Mel Gibson) and Best Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama, Andrew Garfield.
