Considering Margot Robbie’s reaction to the Oscars’ dismissive attitude and recognizing “Barbie’s” achievements.

Oscars night with Margot Robbie- “There’s no way to feel sad”

In a storyline turn that even Barbie would have envied, Margot Robbie addressed the big issue—her conspicuous omission from the Best Actress Oscar for “Barbie.”

There’s no way to feel unhappy when you know you’re this lucky, Robbie declared with confidence during a special SAG-AFTRA screening of the movie that broke all previous records.

Undeterred by the rejection, the Australian actress expressed her excitement at the eight nominations that “Barbie” received, which included Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best Costume Design, and Best Production Design. She also graciously praised the amazing talent in the business.

From Acknowledgments to Rejections- “Barbie’s” Oscar Journey

The “Barbie” crew took comfort in the movie’s overall success, despite fans’ fury at Robbie’s rejection for Best Actress and Greta Gerwig’s exclusion from the Best Director category.

Robbie declared that she thought Gerwig’s work was extraordinary and that it was a “once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing.”

While acknowledging that “Barbie” was the highest-grossing picture ever directed by a woman, Robbie also stressed the cultural significance of the movie.

With a whopping $1.4 billion in global revenue in 2023, the movie became Warner Bros. Pictures’ highest-grossing domestic blockbuster ever.

Robbie’s Take on “Barbie’s” Cultural Impact

Producer Robbie, a major contributor to “Barbie’s” popularity, declared, “We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact,” as he continued to wax poetic about the movie’s cultural significance.

And it has already accomplished far more than we ever could have imagined. And it really is the greatest benefit that might arise from this whole situation.”

“People’s reactions to the movie have been the biggest reward of this entire experience,” the actress continued, highlighting the distinct reactions the film got. I have never participated in anything similar. Not in this manner. It feels extremely different even now. Furthermore, I can’t recall a single instance in which a film had this cultural impact. And to be in the center of the storm is just incredible.”

The Co-Stars’ Grief- Robbie and Gerwig’s Oscars Ignorance

Robbie chose the highway, but her co-stars were disappointed that neither she nor Gerwig received nods.

Co-star and fellow producer America Ferrera voiced her dissatisfaction, especially with Gerwig, saying, “Building this world, and taking something that didn’t have intrinsic value to most people and turning it into a worldwide phenomenon.” The fact that she is not on that list seems unsatisfactory.”

“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,” said Ryan Gosling, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

The “Barbie” narrative is still captivating spectators as the Oscars drama plays out, demonstrating that despite setbacks, the significance of a plastic doll named Ken and a widely acclaimed movie cannot be understated.
