In fact, the actress was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Barbie, but she's upset that Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig aren't on the nomination list.
“I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated,” the actress told Variety. Greta did pretty much everything a director could do to deserve it. By creating this world, by taking something that has no intrinsic value to most people and making it a global phenomenon. It's disappointing not to see her on this list. »
Ryan Gosling was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Ken in the blockbuster. He also spoke about the exclusion of Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie. And he can't believe it either.
“There is no Ken without Barbie and there is no Barbie film without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible worldwide for this historic and acclaimed feature film,” he said. Without her talent, courage and genius, no one would be able to be recognized in film. To say I'm disappointed they weren't nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement. »
Barbie is still in the running with eight nominations, including two for music, with Ryan Gosling competing for the song “I'm Just Ken.” Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie have not yet commented on their lack of nominations.
