Barbie (2023) has been nominated in 8 categories at the upcoming 96th Academy Award. However, many people, including actor Ryan Gosling, are disappointed that Margot Robbie, the star of the movie, and the movie’s director Greta Gerwig were not nominated in their respective categories. In a recent statement, Gosling explained that “there is no Barbie movie without Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig.” Gosling’s co-star Simu Liu also supported Gosling in a recent post made on Twitter/X,

“Being involved in a small way gave me a window into just how hard Greta and Margot had to fight to get Barbie made, and how flawlessly they executed. Together they started a movement, touched the world and reinvigorated the cinema. They deserve everything. They ARE everything.”

Actress America Ferrera, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the film, also supported Gosling. While the movie certainly started a global movement, was it really that good?

Indeed, Barbie was a massive hit, bringing in over $1.4 billion at the global box office but many people on social media are done with the whining, in fact, many argue that Robbie’s performance wasn’t even Oscar-worthy.



Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer got nominated in 13 categories, which is the most nominations out of all movies, followed by Poor Things and Killers of the Flower Moon with 11 and 10, respectively. The 96th Academy Awards is expected to take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, on March 10, 2024.
