“Deadpool” may have scored the biggest opening weekend in February box office history and become the highest-grossing film in the X-Men franchise, but star Ryan Reynolds has his eyes on another prize: the Oscars.

On Twitter, Reynolds joked that there were still a few hours left to conduct a write-in campaign for “an ineligible movie.” His Tweet included a graphic with a whole bunch of fake accolades for the film, like “Best ‘Leaked’ Footage” and “Winner 4 Golden Girls.”
