Deadpool Crashes the Golden Globes With Two Major Nominations

Deadpool has surprised us all yet again by getting two major nominations at 2017’s Golden Globes Awards! The Merc With a Mouth must be pleased.

A few years ago it looked like Ryan Reynolds was never going to get to make the Deadpool film he so desperately wanted to. In fact, if the screen test footage Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds showed at 2014’s San Diego Comic Con hadn’t leaked, Fox would have pulled the plug on the project. Deadpool came to fruition as a result of hard work of Reynolds and Miller and the fans’ dedication to the cause. Reynolds even had to put some of his own money up to finish the film and pay the writers because Fox refused to. Now Deadpool has broken all sorts of records, becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time earning over $780 million worldwide. All that work has paid off since it has been nominated for two of the biggest awards at the Golden Globes.

Deadpool has been nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and Ryan Reynolds himself was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. This is the first time the Canadian actor has been nominated for one of the big three: the Golden Globes, the Oscars or the Emmys. He most be over the moon right now. Deadpool being nominated for these major awards is a big deal because it marks a change in how the critics perceive superhero movies. They can be R-rated, they can be rude, they can push the envelope, they can be different. Hopefully, thanks to Deadpool, we’ll start seeing more comic book movies try to do things differently. Logan, which will also be R-rated, could also do a similar thing.

Fox must not be believing their luck right now because it they had had it their way, Deadpool would have never seen the light of day. Instead of having a real hit on their hands in 2016, they would have been left with a great big turkey of a movie in X-Men: Apocalypse as far as superhero movies are concerned. It’s no wonder they’ve already greenlit Deadpool 2, which will be helmed by John Wick’s David Leitch. It was a shame to see Miller leave the project, but I’m confident that Leitch and Reynolds will deliver another fine Deadpool film.
