Margot Robbie Speaks Out on Oscar Snub
Despite "Barbie" receiving eight Oscar nominations, including nods for best picture, best supporting actor, and best supporting actress, Margot Robbie, who played the title role and is also a producer, expressed her contentment despite being overlooked in the best actress category.
During a SAG-AFTRA discussion with co-stars, Robbie stated, "There's no way to feel sad when you know you're this blessed." She emphasized that the movie's mission was to "affect culture," which she considers the "biggest reward" stemming from the film's success.
While fans expressed disappointment over Robbie's omission in the best actress category, she redirected attention to Greta Gerwig, the director of "Barbie," expressing her belief that Gerwig's work deserved a nomination. Despite the Oscar snub, "Barbie" achieved significant success, grossing $1.38 billion globally, surpassing industry predictions. The film garnered nominations in various categories, including best original song, best costume, and best production design, with Robbie highlighting the impact the film has had on cultural conversations.
