Whoopi Goldberg Says Margot Robbie, Greta Gerwig Weren’t Snubbed by Oscars for ‘Barbie’: “Not Everybody Gets a Prize”

Whoopi Goldberg weighed in on the Academy Awards nominations during a recent episode of The View, offering her thoughts on the apparent snubs of Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig in the Best Leading Actress and Best Director categories for the Barbie movie.

Speaking as an EGOT winner, Goldberg shared that in the world of awards, not everyone comes out as a winner, and she stressed that the exclusion of Robbie and Gerwig wasn’t a snub but rather part of the unpredictable nature of the voting process. She clarified that it’s not just the elites but the entire Academy family that votes for Best Picture nominations.

While fans and some Hollywood stars expressed disappointment over the omissions, The View panelists delved into the topic. Alyssa Farah Griffin commended Ryan Gosling for acknowledging the snubs in his statement, stating that there’s no Barbie movie without Gerwig and Robbie.

However, cohost Sara Haines posed an interesting question about when a nomination turns into a snub, suggesting that with only five slots for nominations, anyone left out could be considered a snub of sorts.

Drawing from her Oscar-winning experience, Goldberg reiterated that there are no actual snubs and reminded everyone that not every deserving candidate gets a prize. She emphasized that personal preferences might differ from the choices made by the voting members.

During the conversation, Alyssa Farah Griffin questioned if the Academy missed the moral of the Barbie story by not celebrating the lead woman in the film. Haines added a different perspective, asking when a nomination becomes a snub and suggesting that there will always be a category of greats who miss out.

Goldberg concluded by emphasizing the inevitability of not everyone receiving recognition and the subjective nature of the voting process. She encouraged everyone to keep in mind that the movies they love may not align with the preferences of the voting members.
