Deadpool Oscar

Throughout this year's awards season, Deadpool emerged as a surprise contender, picking up nominations from the Golden Globes, Writers Guild, and Producers Guild (among others). With all the accolades, it became the most critically acclaimed comic book adaptation since 2008's The Dark Knight, and its many fans were hopeful that the Merc With a Mouth could crash the Academy Awards party and maybe get a Best Picture montage of his own. The odds of that happening were low, but that didn't stop Fox from campaigning hard for Deadpool on their For Your Consideration page.
