Margot Robbie recently shared her thoughts on not being nominated for Best Actress at this year’s Oscars for her role in the Barbie movie. She said she’s not feeling down about it because she feels blessed with all the other good things happening in her life. Speaking at a SAG-AFTRA event in LA, she also mentioned that she thinks director Greta Gerwig should have been recognized for her incredible work on the film. But despite the snub, Margot is thrilled about the film’s success and the eight nominations it received at the upcoming SAG Awards. She feels like they set out to make a difference with the movie, and it’s already exceeded their expectations.
Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera, who are also nominated for their roles in the Barbie movie, expressed their disappointment at Margot and Greta not getting nominated. Ryan even said that Margot and Greta were essential to the film’s success.
It’s not all bad news, though. The SAG Awards will have some historic moments, like Lily Gladstone becoming the first Native American woman to be nominated for Best Actress. Despite the snubs, there’s still a lot to celebrate about the film and its impact on representation in Hollywood.
