Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel is disappointed Deadpool wasn’t nominated for Best Picture

22 February 2017 4:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony is quickly approaching, and to promote the festivities Jimmy Kimmel took part in an interview with Variety. One of the topics touched upon was the Academy’s lack of nominating bigger budget films and under appreciation of the comedy genre, specifically Deadpool.

Kimmel stated: “I would have liked to have seen Deadpool get nominated. I do think there’s a certain type of movie that’s not considered for awards. It’s a shame, because there’s nothing serious about the movies; they’re an escape… I think comedies are also underappreciated. There’s maybe too much gravity applied to the nomination process.”

Deadpool was being written during the filming of Green Lantern

Deadpool has become a surprise awards contender, landing a Producers Guild of America nomination and now has the possibility of receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. In the wake of all this fun and chaos, Ryan Reynolds sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for their Awards Chatter podcast, detailing just how far back production goes on this rousing success story:

“The weird plot twist was, somehow, some way, Deadpool got reinvigorated at Fox while [Green Lantern] was happening. … What a lot of people don’t know is [writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick] flew to New Orleans and, while I was shooting Green Lantern, we were actually all together writing Deadpool.”

Can “Deadpool” really become an Oscar nominee?

11 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of the most interesting developments during the recent part of the precursor season is the surprising strength that Deadpool has shown. From the Golden Globes to the Writers Guild to yesterday the Producers Guild, this odd little blockbuster has popped up in a number of places. Not only has it given rise to plenty of folks speculating about its Oscar chances, some are even making the case that a Best Picture nomination could be coming its way. That’s silly, but it does seem likely that the Academy could nominate the film somewhere. Just a few months ago, that would have been inconceivable. Deadpool is certainly one of the little movies that could this time around. A quick summary, for those still in the dark about it. The flick is perhaps the most meta comic book tale we’ve ever seen. Sure, this is also an origin story about »
