Hugh Jackman vehemently opposes Ryan Reynolds receiving an Oscar nomination.

Hugh Jackman took to Instagram to ask Academy voters not to nominate Ryan Reynolds in the best song category for his performance in “Spirited.”

Reynolds and Will Ferrell sing “Good Afternoon” in a retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol,” which made the 95th Academy Awards shortlist in the original song category.

In a video, Jackman stated that a nomination for Reynolds “would make the next year of my life insufferable.”

“It’s 2023, and I really, really wanted to send a positive message out at the start of the year, but recent events have made that impossible,” Jackman joked.

While he gave the film a positive review, he stated that if Reynolds wins, he will gloat and it will become unbearable.

“I just heard the Academy has nominated ‘Good Afternoon’ for best song,” Jackman said. “Now, Ryan Reynolds receiving a nomination for best song would make the next year of my life unbearable. It certainly would. I mean, I’ve got to spend a year with him filming ‘Wolverine’ and ‘Deadpool.'”

“So, just to recap: love ‘Spirited,’ love Will, love Octavia, love the song ‘Good Afternoon,'” he concluded. But please, please, please, please do not validate Ryan Reynolds in this way. Please.”

Reynolds, who has been mocking Jackman for years, responded with a tweet.

“I believe the deepfakes who sang and danced for Will and I would love to perform at the Oscars,” he wrote, later adding, “Also ‘Wolverine and Deadpool,’ bub?”

In a new interview for CNN’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?”, Jackman also argued that Wolverine would be the true star of his collaboration with Reynolds.

“I understand you’re set to play Wolverine for the tenth time in the next ‘Deadpool’ film, despite the fact that your character Logan or Wolverine was killed off in the previous film. Why?” Wallace inquired.

“I mean, you classify it as a ‘Deadpool’ film. “In our house, we call it a ‘Wolverine 10,” Jackman responded.

The actor said he plans to train for six months to get back into shape for the role, which previously meant eating “19 chickens a day.”

“I’m in good health. “I’ve got a good place to start,” Jackman said to Wallace. “I apologize, chickens. Run one mile. “Run now, because I’m coming for you.”
