Before last year, we would have given you the biggest odds on 'Deadpool' getting any awards season love but after how 2016 turned out, all bets are off.

Having made his mark at the Golden Globes, everyone's favourite merc with a mouth is now pitching for Academy Awards and doing so in the most 'Deadpool' of ways.

Will it get nominated in any of the big categories? Probably not, but that hasn't stopped Ryan Reynolds and Fox creating the most tongue-in-cheek and knowing wink of a 'For Your Consideration' video for the film which will hopefully resonate with enough members of the academy to ruffle some feathers come nominations day.

Plus what's an awards show without Ryan Reynolds? Boring, that's what.
