"Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds holds no ill will after his R-rated superhero movie got shut out of the nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards.

"Regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on," the actor tweeted on Tuesday morning. "Congrats to all the nominees for these brilliant films. #Oscars2017."

"Deadpool" was always a long shot for an Oscar nomination, but the film had a lot going for it thanks to a range of other major awards nominations. It was nominated for two Golden Globes, one for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and another Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Reynolds.

The film was also nominated for an ACE Eddie Award, and a Writers Guild Award for Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick in the Best Adapted Screenplay category — a category in which 14 of the 25 nominees in the last five years have gone on to Oscar best-pic nods.

And the film won two Critics' Choice Awards and two MTV Movie Awards and two Teen Choice Awards and two Golden Trailer Awards.

Yet Reynolds is probably not taking this sting too badly. After all, the film — which had a reported budget of $58 million — has grossed an astounding $783 million worldwide.
