Australian actress Margot Robbie has commented for the first time on the absence of director Greta Gerwig in the Oscar nominations. She shared details in a conversation with Daily Mail.
Gerwig presented the much-talked-about film “Barbie” last year. The film was so well-received that it received eight nominations, but its main characters were left out. Margot Robbie, who played Barbie in the movie, was not nominated for “Best Actress,” and Greta Gerwig was not nominated for “Best Director.”
According to Robbie, she is outraged that Greta Gerwig’s candidacy was not put forward for the Oscar. She called for a change in the nominees.
“I think Greta should be nominated as a director because what she has done is something that happens once in a career, once in a lifetime,” said Margot Robbie, without commenting on her own absence.
Ryan Gosling is nominated for an Oscar in the “Best Supporting Actor” category for his role as Ken in the film “Barbie.” However, according to predictions, the main contender for victory in this category is Robert Downey Jr. from “Oppenheimer.”
