Margot Robbie Breaks Silence on Oscars Snub for Barbie Role


“There is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie,” Ryan Gosling, who earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination, said in a statement to E! News, “the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally-celebrated film.”

For America Ferrera, who picked up her first-ever Oscar nod for playing Gloria in Barbie, she believes the oversight underscores the film’s message.

“It’s really a disappointment. It’s just so undeniable what they created. How unprecedented, how unexpected,” the Best Supporting Actress nominee told The Today Show on Jan. 24. “And I think that’s what people are bummed about.”

Ultimately for Margot, just being a member of the Barbie family means she has a great day, every day, regardless of any trophies.

“I’ve never been a part of something like this,” she added during the SAG screening. “I can’t think of a time when a movie’s had this effect on culture. And it’s amazing to be in the eye of the storm.”
