In 2008, Garfield won a BAFTA TV Award for his portrayal of an adolescent with a troubled past in the made-for-television movie Boy A. He later earned his first Golden Globe nod for his supporting turn as Eduardo Saverin, Facebook's co-founder and chief financial officer, in The Social Network (2010).
