Margot Robbie has gracefully addressed Oscar snub as the absence of her Best Actress Oscar nomination, reassured fans that there's "no reason to feel sad.”
She recently participated in a SAG-AFTRA discussion with her Barbie co-stars, during which she fielded questions about the absence of her Best Actress Oscar nomination and the subsequent public outcry.
“There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed,” regarding the omission, Robbie commented on the oversight, noting that the absence of Greta Gerwig from the best director category was more disheartening.
She stated, “Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director,” adding, “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.”
However, Robbie expressed immense joy about the film securing eight Oscar nominations.
These nominations encompass various categories such as best picture, adapted screenplay, supporting actor for Ryan Gosling, supporting actress for America Ferrera, costume design, production design, and two nominations for original song.
“Everyone getting the nods that they’ve had is just incredible, and the best picture nod.” Robbie said.
The Babylon star added, “We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact. 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.”
“People’s reactions to the movie have been the biggest reward of this entire experience,” she continued.
The Suicide Squad star shared, “Whether it’s seeing what people are writing online, or even just seeing how much pink I can see in this room right now…I’ve never been a part of something like this. Not like this. I’ve done comic book stuff and that gets a big reaction, but this felt very different. It still feels very different. And 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.”
The omissions of both Robbie and Gerwig from this year's Academy Award nominations sparked controversy. In response to these snubs, their fellow nominees, Gosling and Ferrera, individually voiced their disappointment with the Academy.
