The Ryans both gave incredibly acclaimed performances in their respective films. While some critics predict that Colin Farrell will win (or at least should win) for "The Lobster"—the Ryans were big with both critics and audiences.

Ryan Gosling arguably has more Oscar buzz than any other actor nominated in the Best Actor, Musical or Comedy category. 

Most of the buzz goes to the Best Actor, Drama category in predicting which way the Oscars will go. But Gosling might be the best bet for male actors this year. Gosling gave a beautifully, unconventional performance as a male romantic lead. Yes, he played a smooth jazz musician, but his character is also a snarky spitfire. And it doesn't hurt that "La La Land" is a frontrunner to win big this awards season.

But Reynolds performance is pure comedy gold. He literally embodies the character Deadpool. And the film is an unconventionally meta superhero comedy. 

"Deadpool" is Reynolds' passion project. It wasn't easy coming back from the "Green Lantern" mega flop. But he did it. And that's all the more reason why he should win. He's got the acclaim and the box office records. And not to forget to mention, the Golden Globes (or Foreign Hollywood Press) doesn't always pick winners based on which has the most Oscar buzz. Popularity is definitely a factor in the musical or comedy categories. And that's something Reynolds (and Deadpool) has a lot of.
