While Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds didn’t pick up wins at the Golden Globes, the nominations started some serious conversations about where superhero movies, truly excellent superhero movies (Think Dark Knight/Deadpool) belong when it comes to Hollywood awards. The Golden Globe nominations also kicked up discussions about possible Oscar nominations that began as humorous promoting and morphed into something much more serious. Reynolds is now promising a ” f—ing crazy reaction video” if Deadpool gets the Oscar Nom.
While taking part in THR‘s podcast Awards Chatter, Reynolds had this to say:
We had no idea we would ever get anything beyond an MTV Movie Award best kiss nomination.
If it does end up in that category [Best Picture], I think that’s kind of a cool moment, for not just us, but for everybody — for the people that went to see the movie, the people that made the movie, the studio, even the Academy. I don’t think that any superhero film has ever really broken that glass ceiling, so it would be nice to see one like Deadpool do it. And I can certainly promise one f—ing crazy reaction video online. In the Deadpool suit. Guaranteed.
The podcast is a great listen, Reynolds talks about his career and projects, use the link above to check it out.
The final voting closes February 21st and Reynolds isn’t holding back when it comes to getting the nomination. He sent out notes with the Deadpool screeners.
Let’s all make a wish.
