Whoopi Goldberg pushes back against ‘Barbie’ snubs at 2024 Oscars: ‘Everybody doesn’t win’

Goodbye, Barbie! Whoopi Goldberg has shared her thoughts on the hit film being left out of some top categories at the 2024 Oscars.

During a recent discussion on “The View,” Goldberg, alongside co-hosts Alyssa Farah Griffin, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, and Sunny Hostin, dove into the reaction of “Barbie” star Ryan Gosling to the absence of Oscar nods for co-star Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig. Gosling snagged a nomination for best supporting actor for his role as Ken in the fantasy comedy.

The conversation sparked a spirited debate on the topic of films being overlooked for recognition in the industry, prompting Goldberg to challenge the idea of rejection.

Goldberg stated, “Everybody doesn’t win. They’re not snubs, and that’s what I want to sort of point out. And it’s not the elites. It’s the entire family of the Academy Awards who vote for best picture nominations.”

“Barbie” secured eight nominations at the 96th Academy Awards, competing for best picture, best adapted screenplay, best original song, best costume design, and best production design, along with best supporting actor and actress.

Despite being a producer on the film, Robbie was notably absent from the acting categories.

Goldberg emphasized, “You don’t get everything that you want to get. That’s what you have to keep in mind. Not everybody gets a prize, and it is subjective. Movies are subjective. The movies you love may not be loved by the people who are voting.”

In a statement shared with various outlets, including CNN and The Hollywood Reporter, Gosling expressed his disappointment about Robbie and Gerwig not receiving recognition in the best actress and best director categories.

“There is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally celebrated film,” Gosling remarked. “No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius. To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.”
