Ryan Reynolds got the Entertainer Of The Year Award in the "Critics Choice Awards" on Sunday. The award ceremony was in Santa Monica on December 11. "Deadpool" proved to be a successful movie of his career."Deadpool" was an 11-year odyssey for me to get up here, and it resonated with a lot of people," Reynolds said

."The character had cancer and some of the people that this character resonated with were sick kids. I would like to dedicate this honor to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Sick Kids Foundation of Toronto, two incredible organizations that do so much for so many kids in need."He continued, "I would also like to dedicate this award to the memory of my friends Connor McGrath and Grace Bowen," the Woman in Gold actor continued. "They didn't lose the battle, but they started a fight and it's up to us to finish it." (McGrath and Bowen were two young children who died of cancer). 

The protagonist of the movie "Deadpool" suffered from cancer due to which he went to an organisation that claimed to heal his cancer. But it turned out to be something else. They did various experiments on him, gave him a lot of pain and made him ugly. The pain that is seen on Reynold's face, when he comes to know that he is actually having a deadly disease, shows the real plight of cancer patients.

When Ryan was asked about his life with his kids and Blake Lively he said, "I don't have time for anything - I'm amazed I remembered pants!" he said with a laugh. His life has become a very busy one with the kids "This is, like, a 45-minutes procedure - and that's on a good day," he said. "If I have to do one, sometimes it's hours. It's a terrible process." And continued "I'm going to actually nap in the awards show," he added. "That's where I'll get a little rest!"
