Ryan Reynolds pushes for Deadpool Oscar recognition

Ryan Reynolds is a big fan of his riotous, raunchy smash hit film Deadpool. Now, the Canadian hunk is campaigning to get the movie Oscar attention.

The Golden Globe nominee released a half-minute video on Twitter showcasing some of the film’s highlights, such as “600 lbs. of chimichangas, 4 pairs of assless chaps…117 script pages, 456 ad libs, 2 nerds, 7 magical unicorns…42 rejection letters from Fox, 1 leaked video and 783 million fans.” It’s being dubbed a “For Your Consideration” tool directed at Oscar voters.

At this point, experts believe Deadpool‘s best shot for an Oscar nomination is in the Best Adapted Screenplay category.

Aside from two Golden Globe noms and two wins at both the MTV Movie Awards and Teen Choice Awards, the Tim Miller film just scored a Producers Guild Award nod this week and will be gunning for two People’s Choice Awards come Jan. 18, 2017.

Shot in Vancouver — Ryan’s hometown — Deadpool has generated over $360 million at the domestic box office.

We’ll see if the actor’s bid to earn the film Oscar recognition is successful when the Academy Award nominations are announced Jan. 24.

Check out Ryan’s tweet (video included) below.

    I love Deadpool! It’s a cult classic in the making. Ryan Reynolds is great. I think it should be nominated for an Oscar. Just because it is raunchy, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be considered.

    I didn’t love Deadpool, but it’s different. At least that’s something. Oscar worthy? Maybe not, but it’s better than a lot of crap on screens.

    I liked Deadpool and I thought Ryan Reynolds was great in it.I think it could win some awards at the Oscars, but it’s not Best Picture material.

    Deadpool was clever and continuously entertaining. It did not disappoint. Hope he continues the story line . Ryan Reynolds was over the top funny!
