Playing Ryan Reynolds Responds to 'Deadpool' Oscars Snub With a 'Regularly Scheduled Tickle Fight'

Ryan Reynolds reacted much like his Deadpool character would to Tuesday morning's Oscar snub.

While Deadpool was predicted to earn a few nominations at this year's Academy Awards, it received zero. "Regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on," Reynolds tweeted after the nominees were announced on Tuesday morning. "Congrats to all the nominees for these brilliant films. #Oscars2017"

Meanwhile, Deadpool fans expressed their disappointment that the film was not recognized, some even calling out that Suicide Squad, another comic book movie that was released last year, earned one nomination for Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling.

"Suicide Squad can be called Oscar nominated but Deadpool can't? What in the world," one Deadpool fan reacted.

"Deadpool was obviously robbed of its rightful Best Picture nomination. ROBBED!!!! #Oscars2017 #deadpool," another Twitter user wrote.

Deadpool was recognized at this year's Golden Globes, with Reynolds earning a nomination for Best Lead Actor and the film itself being up for Best Motion Picture, but lost out to La La Land in both categories.

"No love for Deadpool? Oscars going gaga for La La," one Twitter user said of La La Land garnering 14 nominations at the Academy Awards.
