Bingkai Karya – Despite being passed over for a Best Actress nomination for her critically acclaimed performance in “Barbie,” Margot Robbie is choosing to focus on the positive impact the film has had.
At a recent SAG-AFTRA screening, Robbie expressed her feelings: “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed,” she said, highlighting the film’s cultural impact and exceeding expectations. This aligns with the movie’s box office success, grossing nearly $1.5 billion and making Greta Gerwig the first solo female director to achieve that milestone.
While Robbie acknowledged the disappointment over Gerwig’s snub in the Best Director category, she passionately defended her: “Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director… what she pulled off, it really is.”
While Robbie and Gerwig weren’t individually recognized, “Barbie” did receive eight nominations, including Best Picture, where Robbie is credited as a producer. Supporting actors Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera also voiced their disappointment over the individual snubs.
Despite the mixed feelings surrounding the nominations, Robbie maintains a positive outlook: “It’s been an incredible year for all the films,” she concluded.
