Margot Robbie Reacts to 'Barbie' Oscar Snub for Best Actress: Not Sad

(USA Today) –She’s everything. He’s just Oscar.

“Barbie” star Margot Robbie, who didn’t receive an Academy Award nomination for her performance in the Greta Gerwig fantasy comedy, reflected on the snub following a screening of the film at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles Tuesday.

“Barbie” received a total of 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. Aside from Robbie’s lack of a solo nomination, director Gerwig also went unnominated.

“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, what she pulled off, it really is,” said Robbie during a panel discussion. “But it’s been an incredible year for all the films. There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”

Released in July 2023, “Barbie” grossed $1.4 billion at the global box office and went on to become Warner Bros. Pictures’ No. 1 domestic release of all time.

But dollar signs and Oscar buzz aside, Robbie said the connection viewers have made with the film is “bigger than this movie” and “bigger than our industry.”

“We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact,” Robbie said. “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.”
