Fans lost it after Academy Awards nominations were announced last month, without Margot Robbie in the running for best actress. Barbie star recently discussed her shocking snub, and said she has no regrets because the film’s success is her biggest reward.
Many experts predicted that Robbie would get an Oscar nod for Barbie, but ended up losing the nomination to Nyad’s Annette Benning, Killers of the Flower Moon’s Lily Gladstone, Anatomy of a Fall’s Sandra Hüller, Maestro’s Carey Mulligan, and Poor Things’ Emma Stone.
This shocking snub inspired thousands of angry tweets and hot takes, but the person least bothered by it seems to be Robbie herself. She addressed it during a special SAG screening of Barbie and said “there’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”
“We set out to do something that would shift culture, affect culture, just make some sort of impact. And it’s already done that, and some, way more than we ever dreamed it would. And that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this,” she explained.
Despite missing out on the best actress nod, Robbie is in the running for the best picture award as the film’s producer, alongside David Heyman, Tom Ackerley, and Robbie Brenner.
