In a surprising twist of fate, knowing that the Oscar voting is highly competitive, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie did not get an Academy Award nomination for Best Director and Best Actress, respectively.

“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… To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement… Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees.”

America Ferrera played a pivotal role in Barbie as a supporting actress. It was through her eyes that the film played out and her character Gloria helped set the tone of the film, bringing the much-needed realistic and poignant aspect of one of the most influential films in history.

While talking to Variety on Tuesday, she stated,

“I still haven’t really been able to get in my feelings because I’m still on like the top layer of ‘I can’t even believe that this is real. It’s an overwhelming amount of love and support and congratulations to me. I feel it so deeply and am so grateful for their love and support and in this moment.”

However, she expressed her disappointment over her co-star and director not getting a nomination,

“I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated. Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it… It feels disappointing to not see her on that list. What Margot achieved as an actress is truly unbelievable. of the things about Margot as an actress is how easy she makes everything look. And perhaps people got fooled into thinking that the work seems easy, but Margot is a magician as an actress in front of the screen.”

As the criticism and cries of disappointment go on, fans have also been pleading with the Academy to increase the number of nominations (via X), which only seems fair seeing the number of blockbusters being released each year.

While Barbie can be streamed on Max, the 2024 Academy Awards will air on ABC, live on Sunday, March 10, 2024.
