Margot Robbie says she doesn’t ‘feel sad’ about being omitted from best actress Oscar race

Margot Robbie has shared her reflections on this year’s Oscar nominations, expressing gratitude despite not receiving a nod in the lead actress category for her role in “Barbie.” Speaking at a special SAG-AFTRA screening, Robbie emphasized feeling blessed and proud of the cultural impact that the film had.

“We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact. And it’s already done that, and some, way more than we ever dreamed it would. And that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this,” Robbie stated.

The 2023 blockbuster “Barbie” earned nearly $1.5 billion globally since its July release, making director Greta Gerwig the first solo female director with a billion-dollar movie. Despite the film’s success, both Robbie and Gerwig were omitted from individual nominations, sparking surprise in the industry.

Robbie, recognizing Gerwig’s exceptional work, commented, “Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing.”

While “Barbie” secured eight Oscar nods, including Best Picture, disappointment lingered over the absence of individual nominations for Gerwig and Robbie. Actors like Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera expressed dismay at their omissions.

“To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement,” Gosling remarked.

Despite the Oscar discourse, Robbie maintained a positive outlook, acknowledging it has been an incredible year for all films, according to Deadline.
