Watch Ryan Reynolds Give the Crazy Reasons ‘Deadpool’ Deserves All the Oscars

He’s not wrong.

Deadpool was an award-worthy movie. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association certainly thought so, that’s why the R-rated superhero romp netted Golden Globe nominations for star Ryan Reynolds

Now it looks as thought Reynolds isn’t satisfied with his Golden Globe nom. The actor is ready to shoot for the moon, which in Hollywood, of course, is the Academy Awards. So Thursday he posted the video above on his (often very funny) Twitter account. It details why Deadpool merits the Academy’s consideration for some golden statues. 

Reasons listed for Deadpool nominations include: “600 lbs. of chimichangas,” “4 pairs of assless chaps,” and “7 magical unicorns.”

We say he should get it on the strength of the chimichangas alone. 

The 89th annual Academy Awards air on February 26. We’ll be watching and rooting for the merc with a mouth all the way.
