Barbie’s Ryan Gosling And America Ferrera Speak Out About Margot Robbie And Greta Gerwig Not Getting Oscar Nominations


The nominees for the 96th Academy Awards were announced earlier today, and Barbie, the highest-grossing movie of 2023, did quite well for itself, scoring nominations in seven categories. However, in addition to Greta Gerwig getting snubbed from the Best Director category, Margot Robbie was also left out of the Best Actress lineup. Now Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera, two of Barbie’s other prominent actors, have spoken about about neither women being recognized at the next Academy Awards ceremony.

To be sure, today was a good day on the Oscars front for both of those actors, with Gosling being nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Ferrera being nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Nevertheless, they made sure to voice their dissatisfaction with neither Gerwig nor Robbie being nominated. Starting off, Gosling issued a statement (via The New York Times’ Kyle Buchanan) that started off with him saying he’s “extremely honored” to be nominated for an Academy Award, and “incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken.” Then he laid out:

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. No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius.
