“Wow, Mr. Lively couldn’t be here to accept this broken Emmy so he sent me on his behalf. First and foremost, Wrexham, we love you. Thank you for letting Rob and the other guy tell your story. Cymru am byth, b******. I’d also like to thank The Academy for this honour and for not asking us to attend the televised awards show with the real celebrities. I’d also like to thank FX and Disney for their support and in exchange, Mr. Lively promises not to f-ck up my next movie.”

He started by stating that Reynolds could not make it to this event, so Deadpool would be filling in for him, referring to him as Mr. Lively. He then thanked Wrexham for giving the actor and McElhenney the honor of being able to tell their story. He also thanked the Emmy Awards for recognizing their efforts and not inviting those involved in this project with the rest of the “real celebrities”. He ended this by threatening the Oscars and telling them to nominate Deadpool 3 next year in the VFX category for the amount of work being put into editing Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s faces.
