You have been missing out on so much in life if you haven't watched Deadpool. The 2016 smash hit about Marvel's 'Merc with a Mouth' exceeded expectations and placed Ryan Reynolds on a new pedestal with his smart-alecky portrayal of the unlikely superhero.
After being shot down by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, better known as the Oscars, last year, Reynolds has been actively canvassing for the film to be considered for the 2017 Oscars.
Superhero and comedy films don't usually make the cut in the Big 5 (Best Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay and Picture), winning accolades only in categories such as VFX.
Reynolds however, wants to change that, and has posted this 'For Your Consideration' trailer for Deadpool on his Twitter page.
Reynolds has been vocal in his discontent about the Oscars not according due consideration to comedies, which, many would agree, are difficult to execute. In a recent interview, he also lauded the Golden Globes for nominating Deadpool alongside acclaimed films like La La Land for Best Motion Picture.
While many factors govern the nomination of films for the Oscars, here's hoping, whatever the possibility, that the investment put in by Reynolds in his character, and in his film,pays off. #OscarForDeadpool!
