'Deadpool' and its Star Get Golden Globe Nominationsby HaydnSpurrell
Deadpool has earned itself two nods for 2017's Golden Globe awards, nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, for Ryan Reynolds' performance.
It stands out as the only superhero film to get any nods for the upcoming awards, helped in no small way by its comedic angle. The film however does face La La Land, Sign Street, Florence Foster Jenkins, and 20th Century Women. It would have to do a lot to win out over La La Land, which has become a critical darling.
Reynolds also goes up against Ryan Gosling for his performance in La La Land, as well as Hugh Grant, Jonah Hill, and Colin Farrell. "Thank you, Golden Globes! As we speak, the entire Deadpool team is engaged in a grotesque, early morning tickle-fight," said Reynolds in a tweet.
