Margot Robbie's very classy response to her lack of an Oscar nomination for Barbie

In the disproportionate and ridiculous Hernani battle that has excited moviegoers on social media, here is a response full of common sense. For the first time, producer and Barbie star Margot Robbie has commented on her non-nomination for the Best Actress Oscar. With admirable fair play. “There is no reason to be sad when we have been so lucky with eight nominations. All the categories we were shortlisted for are incredible. Starting with that of the best film,” confided the interpreter of the Mattel doll on Tuesday during an exchange session organized by the actors’ union SAG. “With Barbie, we embarked on a project that would move cultural boundaries, that would have an impact. We achieved it beyond all our expectations.”

“The public's reactions to Barbie are our greatest reward: seeing their comments online, seeing how many people dress in pink. I was never at the heart of such a movement before Barbie, and yet I participated in superhero films. Being in the eye of the storm at this point is wonderful. I don’t remember another film that has unleashed such enthusiasm,” she said.

Announced as the big favorite, because she was nominated by all the precursor ceremonies (Golden Globes, SAG Awards), Margot Robbie is not, to everyone's surprise, one of the five actresses in the running for the acting prize on March 10. The 10,000 voters of the Academy of Oscars preferred Lily Gladstone (Killers Of The Flower Moon), Emma Stone (Poor Creatures), Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a Fall), Carey Mulligan (Maestro), Annette Bening (Unsinkable) .

Without pity on her own fate, Margot Robbie, on the other hand, feels sorry for her director and screenwriter, Greta Gerwig. Nominated in the best adaptation category but absent from the directing category, even though the future president of the Cannes jury became the first female filmmaker to pass the billion-dollar box office mark. “She should have received a nomination. What she accomplished only happens once in a lifetime,” lamented Margot Robbie.

Barbie's omissions from the Oscars have angered many fans who see it as a sign of hostility against a popular, feminist comedy. How can a film that denounces the objectification of the famous doll result in what it denounces? Seeing the actor who plays a male tempted by the patriarchy be named where his filmmaker and lead actress failed? The interpreter of Ken and contender for the statuette for best supporting role, Ryan Gosling, publicly deplored their absence. The controversy took on proportions that surprised specialized journalists from the Hollywood press. Indeed, Barbie, a commercial film if ever there was one, is not completely wronged. It is in the running for the king trophy for best film. Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig have nominations to their name as producer and screenwriter.

The Hollywood Reporter and Variety note an indignation of variable geometry. Other actresses saw the nomination slip through their fingers, like the actress of Korean origin and diversity Greta Lee, wonderfully delicate in Past Lives. Yet its omission caused far fewer waves. Likewise, Leonardo DiCaprio's absence for his performance on Killers Of The Flower Moon didn't raise any eyebrows. It also doesn't matter that the famously macho branch of directors has boldly included the Frenchwoman Justine Triet in the list of the lucky ones.
