Barbie star Margot Robbie says “There’s no way to feel sad” despite missing out on an Oscars nomination for best actress.
Margot Robbie has spoken out about her omission from the Oscar nominations for Best Actress. The star of Barbie expressed that despite not receiving a nomination, she feels incredibly blessed, stating, “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”
However, she stood up for director Greta Gerwig, who was not nominated in the Best Director category.
I firmly believe Greta should receive a directorial nomination,” she expressed during a Sag-Aftra panel discussion.
“What she accomplished is a once-in-a-lifetime endeavor, a truly remarkable feat. Yet, it has been an extraordinary year for all the films.
We intended to create something that would alter and resonate with culture, to have some sort of meaningful impact, and it has already achieved that and more, far beyond what we ever imagined.
That, indeed, is the greatest reward that could emerge from all of this.
Robbie conveyed her immense joy that the blockbuster achieved eight Oscar nominations, notably securing nods for Best Supporting Actress for America Ferrera in the role of Gloria, and Best Supporting Actor for Ryan Gosling portraying Ken.
While Gerwig missed out on the Best Director nomination, she and her husband Noah Baumbach were recognized for Best Adapted Screenplay. Although Robbie did not secure a Best Actress nomination, she received acknowledgment for Best Picture as a producer.
Gosling expressed his “honored” sentiment regarding the nomination but conveyed his disappointment regarding Robbie and Gerwig being overlooked in their respective categories.
However, there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two individuals primarily responsible for this groundbreaking, globally acclaimed film.
No one involved in the film could receive recognition without their talent, determination, and brilliance.
Hillary Clinton also extended her support to the stars who did not receive nominations.
The former US Secretary of State took to social media to address both, stating: “While it may be disappointing to lead at the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans adore you.
You both mean so much more than ‘Kenough
