After months of hype and controversy, the big night is finally upon us. The red carpet has been rolled out, the votes have been cast, and host Jimmy Kimmel has rehearsed all his best Matt Damon jokes. At last, the 89th Academy Awards have arrived.
La La Land, duh. Manchester By the Sea, right. Moonlight, you better. Deadpool – excuse me? It’s true, Ryan Reynolds’ superhero movie has just been named one of the 10 best films of 2016 by the Producers Guild of America (via Variety). Many of us thought its Golden Globes nominations were just a result of the HFPA’s always wacky taste, but it seems the Deadpool virus has spread across the nation to multiple voting bodies, from the Writer’s Guild of America to the Producers.
I saw this all over my news feed yesterday and it made me sick to my stomach. Then, last night, I watched Jimmy Kimmel talk about it and actually get choked up. Watch the video and Jimmy's reaction at 4:15. Here is what we know so far;
“Look at those cheeks! They’re so cute I could just eat them.” When grandma says it she only kinda means it. This lioness on the other hand, looks like she’d like nothing more than to smash through the glass and help herself to one heaping plate of adorable, clueless human. You can almost taste the cute.
