Even though it missed out on the Golden Globes over the weekend, Deadpool still has a couple of impressive nominations under its formidable belt, including a Critics' Choice Award nomination for Best Comedy, a Writers Guild of America nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay and a nom from the Producers Guild of America. Not bad for a comic book movie 20th Century Fox didn't want to make in the first place, right?

The Merc With a Mouth is now throwing his hat into the ring for the Oscars race, with Ryan Reynolds narrating this hilarious "For Your Consideration" video highlighting the film's liberal use of chimichangas, four pairs of assless chaps (yep, you read that right), nerds, magical unicorns and So. Much. More.

Now, whether all that's going to sway Academy Awards members to include the film on their ballots remains to be seen, but I think at this point it's not out of the realm of possibility for the movie to nab a couple of well-deserved nominations. What do you think?
