Canadians Gosling, Reynolds get Golden Globe nominations

The raunchy, anti-superhero flick was a huge hit with critics and audiences, and now it has the chance to win some coveted major award hardware for both the film (nominated for Best Picture - Musical or Comedy) and Reynolds (nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy).

The film, which Reynolds also produced, is nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy against 20th Century Women, Florence Foster Jenkins, La La Land and Sing Street. While some fans may think it is about time that a superhero movie be nominated for some of the bigger award categories, it may still come as a surprise that Deadpool was the film which was able to pull it off.

"Thank you, Golden Globes", Reynolds wrote on Twitter. "So I would like to dedicate this honour to Make-a-Wish foundation and the SickKids Foundation of Toronto, two incredible organizations that do so much for so many kids in need".

Reynolds also won Best Actor in a Comedy for Deadpool, but lost Best Actor in an Action Movie to Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge. "As we speak, the entire Deadpool team is engaged in a grotesque, early morning tickle-fight".
