Remember When We Thought 'Deadpool' Might Get a Best Picture Nomination? Ha! What a Laugh!

When Deadpool started racking up nominations at awards show after awards show, we began to think it actually had a shot at landing in the Best Adapted Screenplay or perhaps even Best Picture category. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. 

No, when all was said and done, only two nominations were doled out to comic book movies: Doctor Strange landed in the Best Visual Effects category and  Suicide Squad nabbed a Makeup and Hairstyling nomination. That's right, folks. Deadpool may have been our favorite CBM of 2016, but it loses the Oscar nomination battle to Suicide Squad 1-0. Woof. 

The big winner was, of course, La La Land, which ties Titanic and All About Eve as the all-time nomination-getters with 14 nominations. In case anyone forgot that Hollywood loves to suck its own cock, the movie musical set in and around Los Angeles got the most nominations this year. Hooray for Hollywood! 

On the positive side of things—I kid La La Land, I liked it despite disagreeing with its thesis statement—Arrival got a lot of love, scoring 8 nominations including Best Picture and Best Director, though Amy Adams was snubbed in the Best Actress category, and the film's brilliant score was ignored so fucking Passengers could get a nomination. You can look at virtually every major category and lament the lack of a nomination for some film or actor. 

My favorite film of 2016, A Monster Calls, got zero nominations, but my number two film Kubo and the Two Strings scored in the Animated Feature category as well as Best Visual Effects, the first LAIKA film to land in that category and the first stop motion feature since The Nightmare Before Christmas. There's plenty of good to go along with the bad this year. For example, I could be upset that Aaron Taylor-Johnson wasn't nominated for Nocturnal Animals, but it's okay because Michael Shannon—who gave the better performance—got nominated instead. It's also nice to see Mahershala Ali, the best thing about Luke Cage, nominated in that same category.
