(CNN) — Hugh Jackman shared a plea on Instagram for Academy voters to drop Ryan Reynolds from the nomination list in the Best Song category for his performance in “Spirited.”
In an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol”, Reynolds and Will Ferrell sang “Good Afternoon”, which was nominated for the 95th Academy Awards in the Original Song category.
Jackman explained in a video that a nomination for Reynolds would “make the next year of my life unbearable.”
“It’s 2023 and I really, really wanted to start the year with a positive message, but recent events have made that impossible,” joked Jackman.
Although he gave the film a glowing review, he said that if Reynolds won he would be ecstatic and become unmanageable.
Jackman said, “I just learned that the Academy has chosen ‘Good Afternoon’ for Best Song.” “Now Ryan Reynolds getting a Best Song nomination will make the next year of my life unbearable. I will. I mean, I get to spend a year shooting ‘Wolverine & Deadpool’ with him.”
And he concluded: “So, in short: I love ‘Spirited’, I love Will, I love Octavia, I love singing ‘Good Afternoon’. But please, please, deep in my heart Se, don’t validate Ryan Reynolds like this. Please.”
Reynolds, who jokingly feuded with Jackman for years, replied with a tweet.
“I think deepfakes who sang and danced like me would love to perform at the Oscars,” he wrote in the caption. protects the back: “Y,¿’Wolverine & Deadpool’, dude?”.

“I understand that in the next ‘Deadpool’ movie, even though your character Logan or Wolverine was killed in the previous movie, you will be playing Wolverine for the 10th time. Why?” Wallace asked.
“I mean, you classify it as a ‘Deadpool’ movie. We like to call it ‘Wolverine 10’ in our house,” Jackman joked in response.
The actor said he plans to train for six months to get into physical shape to return to the role, which in the past meant eating “about 19 chickens a day”.
Jackman told Wallace, “I’m healthy. I have a good start.” “And sorry chickens. Run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you.”
