The Wolverine actor asked the Academy not to recommend Ryan Reynolds for an Oscar for Best Original Song in a video message shared on Twitter wishing everyone a happy new year. Soon after, the Deadpool actor answered.
Hugh Jackman, an actor, pleaded with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences not to include Ryan Reynolds’ musical number “Good Afternoon” from the movie Spirited in the Best Original Song category in a video that he shared on Wednesday. He threatened to make Ryan’s life “insufferable” if the Logan actor received a nomination.

As he uploaded a video of himself to the microblogging site, the Logan actor said he wanted to spread a message of hope for the coming year. He said, “Hey everybody, it’s 2023 and I wanted to send out a positive message at the beginning of the year. But recent events have made that impossible.” Hugh specifically made fun of Ryan Reynolds, whose song Good Afternoon was included on this year’s Oscar shortlist for Best Original Song, heightening the pretended competition.
“Now, Ryan Reynolds getting a nomination in the Best Song category would make the next year of my life insufferable. I have to spend a year with him shooting [the third] Deadpool [film]. Trust me, it would be impossible. It would be a problem,” he stated with a glum expression.
Just to recap, love ‘Spirited,’ love Will, love Octavia, love the song ‘Good Afternoon,’ love Benj and Justin,’ Hugh said as he said goodbye to the video. However, I sincerely ask that you refrain from endorsing Ryan Reynolds in this way. Please,” Hugh said at the end of his video. Hugh Jackman intentionally made Ryan’s nomination a disappointment because he has experience in musical theatre. Hugh had recently finished performing as Harold Hill in The Music Man’s Broadway revival. The Greatest Showman, a hit musical movie from 2017, featured the Academy Award-nominated star of another musical, Les Miserables.
Ryan Reynolds swiftly objected to the Logan actor’s remark, reposting the video and tweeting, “Disagree. I think the deepfakes that sang and danced for Will and I would love to perform at the Oscars.” As he did neither affirm nor deny Wolverine and Deadpool being the title of Deadpool 3, Ryan Reynolds also left some room for speculation.
Hugh Jackman, who is reprising his legendary role as Wolverine, and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will engage in a confrontation in Deadpool 3. It will start shooting this year with a November release scheduled for the following year.
