Ok, a little context here. Superhero films rarely ever get Oscar Nominations. Why? Because they’re superhero films, and rarely ever get the consideration they truly deserve. In fact, the only victory for one was Heath Ledger for the Joker, and most agree that was honestly because he died shortly after the film was made. But, that’s not stopping Deadpool from trying to become the first to get one for “Best Picture”.
Yep, Ryan Reynolds, has officially made “For Your Consideration” video “showing” why Deadpool should get an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. Now, before you think, “It’s Deadpool! It has no shot!” You need to consider this. It earned a Producers Guild of America nomination for Best Film not that long ago. And though it’s fair to say he won’t win, there usually is a line of symmetry that happens between events like that and the Oscars. Although, the PGA did nominate The Dark Knight for best film, but the Oscar did not. Maybe they should watch the “For Your Consideration” video…
Now, I know that speaks deeply to you and me, but to the Oscars team? Maybe not. As sad as it is to say, the Oscars ais to be a very “refined” movie presentation show. They try and pick films that are the very best of the best when it comes to visuals and story. And while Deadpool does have both in many people’s minds, they might not be able to get over the crude humor, 4th wall breaking, and other things that made Deadpool…well, Deadpool.
But one can hope, that, and help Deadpool by spreading the word that he SHOULD be nominated for an Oscar. Weirder things have happened right?
