In a year where many might have thought Captain America: Civil War would be the first comic book film to score some big time nominations for Oscar gold, a new contender has emerged with a lot more clout than anyone had thought. Wade Wilson's mouth has gotten him into the big time, as Deadpool has been racking up nominations at the Golden Globes, as well as the Writers and Producers Guilds. Tell us you saw that coming!

It's not hard to see why the film has been steaming ahead on a train that's blazing a trail no other four-panel film adaptation has been down. In fact, there are some safe cases that can be made for various major Oscar nominations to fall into the laps of those responsible for Deadpool and all of its nutty glory. And we're going to make a case for each and every one of them, as we're totally behind Ryan Reynolds and company being honored for the work they've done in redefining the comic film landscape.

The Case For Best Adapted Screenplay

Best Adapted Screenplay is almost a given, considering the writing is what's probably the strongest point of Deadpool's total package. Everything lives or dies by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick's script, as it not only has to make sense of the fourth-wall breaking/smart-assed humor Deadpool is know for, it also has to keep up with the cast's fast mouths. It pokes fun at comic films without having to remove itself too much from the comic book fray. Also, it's drop dead funny, and humor should count for something in a screenplay.
