Margot Robbie is lastly talking on the Oscar snubs heard ‘around the world over “Barbie” — and whereas she’s taking the excessive street for herself … she’s going to bat for her director.
The actress shared new remarks on the difficulty Tuesday evening throughout a SAG-AFTRA panel the place she was current and given the ground to air out her ideas. It is fascinating … MR would not handle her personal snub for Greatest Actress, however she does explicitly defend Greta Gerwig.
Margot says, “Clearly, I feel Greta must be nominated as a director, as a result of what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime factor, what she pulled off, it truly is. But it surely’s been an unbelievable yr for all of the movies.”
She went on to say that she’s “past ecstatic” that ‘Barbie’ racked up as many nominations because it did (8) — however in the identical breath, famous she understood the frustration from followers.
Margot completed by saying … “I simply suspect it’s larger than us. It’s larger than this film, it’s larger than our business.” Unclear what precisely she means by that … appears like she’s referring to politics throughout the Academy, although.
Last item Margot talked about on this matter … “We got down to do one thing that will shift tradition, have an effect on tradition, simply make some type of impression. And it’s already achieved that, and a few, far more than we ever dreamed it might. And that’s really the largest reward that might come out of all of this.”
Keep in mind, there was widespread outrage over the actual fact Margot and Greta had been left off the nominations checklist — regardless that Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera obtained Oscar nods.
Many felt if Ryan was nominated, it was a no brainer to get Margot in there too … seeing how she actually carries the movie, and is the center and soul of the entire thing.
She’s clearly a bit of peeved about it … however not for herself, it appears. Feels like she’s in the identical camp as everybody else on this — particularly, “Barbie” ought to’ve gotten extra recognition.
