Ryan Gosling Speaks Out Against Margot Robbie And Greta Gerwig’s ‘Barbie’ Oscar Snub

Ryan Gosling has expressed his dissatisfaction with the Oscar nominations, particularly the omission of Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig for their roles in the highly successful film “Barbie.” Despite the movie achieving a significant box office milestone, securing eight Oscar nominations, fans were surprised to find Robbie and Gerwig missing from the list.

Gosling, who plays the character Ken in the film, not only acknowledged his own nomination but also criticized the Oscars for overlooking Robbie and Gerwig. Barbie received nominations in various categories, including Best Supporting Actress for America Ferrera, Best Original Songs for ‘I’m Just Ken’ and ‘What Was I Made For?,’ and Best Costume Design and Production Design.

The film’s director, Greta Gerwig, was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay alongside her co-writer and partner Noah Baumbach. Margot Robbie, who portrayed the titular character, received a nomination for Best Picture alongside her partners Tom Ackerley, David Heyman, and Robbie Brenner.

In a statement provided to multiple US outlets, Gosling expressed his gratitude for the nomination but emphasized the essential contributions of Gerwig and Robbie to the film’s success. He highlighted that their talent, determination, and brilliance were crucial to the groundbreaking and globally celebrated nature of “Barbie.”

Gosling stated, “No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit, and genius. To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.” He went on to praise the outstanding work of America Ferrera and other artists involved in the film, emphasizing the groundbreaking nature of their contributions.

While expressing his joy for the recognized talents, Gosling’s statement underscored his belief that Gerwig and Robbie deserved acknowledgment alongside other deserving nominees for their remarkable roles in bringing the iconic plastic dolls to life on the big screen.
