Jan 24, 2017

Twitter, of course, is having none of it—especially since the superhero movie Suicide Squad did receive a nomination (for Best Makeup, but still). Here's a roundup of the best responses of outrage and surprise, expressed in appropriately cheeky fashion. (Even Reynolds himself had something to say.)

UPDATE: Reynolds himself also took to Twitter to express his alternative plans for Oscar evening in a typically funny and gracious manner.
