Margot Robbie Not Sad by Oscar Snub for 'Barbie'
Warner Bros. Pictures

While Margot was hardly bothered by the snub, she was more disappointed that filmmaker Greta Gerwig did not pick up a Best Director nomination for this year's OScars.

AceShowbiz - Being snubbed in the 2024 Oscars was seemingly not a big deal for Margot Robbie. The "Barbie" leading lady, who missed the cut in the Best Actress category, said she doesn't "feel sad" by the omission.

"There's no way to feel sad when you know you're this blessed," the 33-year-old said during a SAG-AFTRA panel with her "Barbie" co-stars on Tuesday, January 30. She, however, was more disappointed that Greta Gerwig did not pick up a Best Director nomination.

"Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director," she explained. "What she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing. What she pulled off, it really is. But it's been an incredible year for all the films."

Still, Margot was grateful that the movie, which made $1.4 billion worldwide, picked up eight Oscar nominations in total. "I just suspect it's bigger than us. It's bigger than this movie, it's bigger than our industry," she stated, adding that she was "beyond ecstatic" about the film's recognition by the Academy.

"We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact," she 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."

While Margot was hardly bothered by the snub, her co-star Ryan Gosling was upset by it. "I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films. And I never thought I'd being saying this, but I'm also incredible honored and proud that it's for portraying a plastic doll named Ken," he said, "But there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no 'Barbie' movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally-celebrated film."

America Ferrera also voiced her feelings over the snubs. "I was incredibly disappointed that they weren't nominated," she told Variety on Tuesday, January 23. "Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it. Creating this world, and taking something that didn't have inherent value to most people and making it a global phenomenon. It feels disappointing to not see her on that list."

The "Ugly Betty" alum then sang praise for Robbie, saying that "what [she] achieved as an actress is truly unbelievable" in "Barbie". She raved, "One of the things about Margot as an actress is how easy she makes everything look. And perhaps people got fooled into thinking that the work seems easy."
