The irreverent anti-hero flick, which boasted perhaps the most compelling movie marketing of 2016, received no nominations at the awards angering some fans, even the poorly received Suicide Squad received more with a nomination in Makeup and Hairstyling.
It comes after the studio even went to the bother of creating the most insincere Oscar pitch the Academy may ever receive.

Responding to the news, still in character, Ryan Reynolds warned that the tickle-fights would continue.

The awards saw Holywood style musical La La Land dominate with 14 nominations tying Titanic and All About Eve for most nominations ever, including nominations for best actor, best actress and best director.
There is a sequel in the works over at Fox, so maybe some years down this line, Reynold's Deadpool will seize an Oscar. At least it won a couple of Clios last year.
