Recently, the list of all nominees for the 2024 Oscars was released and, as expected, some surprises left film fans very intrigued. Margot Robbie, actress who brought the world’s most famous doll to life in the film Barbiefor example, failed to get a nomination in the Best Actress category, which outraged many viewers who enjoyed Greta Gerwig’s work and the artist’s work.
Yesterday (31), during a panel organized by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), a union that represents actors and actresses from the United States, Margot said she was not sad about the snub she received from the Academy. “There’s no way to be sad when you’re so blessed,” she said.

Barbie: Margot Robbie breaks silence on Oscar 2024
In her speech, Margot Robbie made a point of reinforcing that, despite not having won a place in the Best Actress category, one of the main categories at the Oscars, she is very happy to Barbie have been recognized in eight other categories. “I’m ecstatic that we got eight nominations, it’s crazy,” said the actress.
Going further, the artist also praised the Barbie, talking about how the film is so much more than what we see on the surface. “I suspect he [Barbie], be bigger than us. It’s bigger than the film itself, it’s bigger than the industry. We tried to do something that would change the culture, affect the culture, something that would make an impact. And he has already done that, even more than we ever dreamed of. And this is, honestly, the greatest award we could receive.”
In addition to showing a lot of humility in the face of the Oscar snub, Margot also reflected on the snub that the director of BarbieGreta Gerwig, received, as the filmmaker failed to get a nomination in the Best Director category. “Obviously, I think Greta should have been nominated as director, because what she’s done is transformative, something you only do once, really. But it was an incredible year for cinema.”
Despite everything, it is worth remembering that Ryan Gosling, who played Ken in Barbie, will compete at the 2024 Oscars as Best Supporting Actor, in addition to receiving a nomination for Best Music, for his performance in “I’m Just Ken.” However, whatever the case, fans will still feel the absence of Margot and Greta.
