Andrew Garfield had been scheduled to attend the 2014 Academy Awards and to present a heroes montage during the ceremony. But when it came time for the Oscars to begin, Garfield -- along with girlfriend Emma Stone -- was not there.

Why did he miss the biggest Hollywood event of the year? Viewers have been wondering for days, since it seems like the drop out happened at the last minute. Sources close to the acting couple told Radar Online that the miss must have been for personal reasons.

"It was disheartening to learn that Andrew canceled on the Oscars," says one insider. "If it were a fight or something between them, one would have just come without the other, but this seemed to be more of something going on with one of their families."

Of course, this is all just a rumor for now and has not been confirmed nor denied by anyone close to Garfield or Stone. If this report is true, the event which took him away from his presenting duties may have had something to do with Stone's family in Arizona. 

"With Emma, it's all family first," the same source claims. "And Andrew is so devoted to her that he wouldn't just leave her in New York dealing with some sort of crisis on her own."

Because of Garfield's absence, Oscar producers had to find someone to fill in quickly and went with actor Chris Evans. There has been no word directly from either Garfield or Stone on this situation.
