Margot Robbie Is Not Sad About Her Oscars SnubWarner Bros.

The 2024 Academy Award nominations are in, and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer has continued to dominate with 13 nods, making it the film with the most nominations.

Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things has been nominated 11 times, while Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon gained ten nods, with the director himself securing his 10th best director Oscar nomination.

Among the snubs of this year’s Oscar nominations are Margot Robbie missing out on a best actress nomination and the film’s director Greta Gerwig not being recognised in the directing category either. Speaking on missing out on a nomination, Robbie said in a SAG-AFTRA discussion with her co-stars: 'There's no way to feel sad when you know you're this blessed.'

Per Variety, she said the mission of the movie was to 'affect culture' and that is the 'biggest reward' that has come out of the film's success.

Robbie insisted in the discussion that she was more upset about Barbie director Greta Gerwig not receiving an Oscar nomination for her directing. Gerwig has been nominated for best adapted screenplay.

'Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director,' she said. 'What she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing. What she pulled off, it really is.'

Ryan Gosling, who was nominated in the best supporting actor category for his role of Ken in Barbie, shared a statement expressing his disappointment that his co-star Margot Robbie and the film's director, Greta Gerwig, both missed out on the big nominations they were predicted to receive.

'There is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally-celebrated film.'

'No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius. To say that I'm disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.'

'Their work should be recognised along with the other very deserving nominees,' he declared.

Only one female actually made the best director nomination shortlist this year: Justine Triet, who masterminded Anatomy of a Fall, and won the Palme d’Or at Cannes last year for the thriller. Celine Song also missed out on a best director nomination for her semi-autobiographical film, Past Lives, with its lead actress Greta Lee having also missed out on a best actress nod, despite being widely believed to be in the running for one.

The Oscars are voted for by almost 11,000 voters of industry professionals from 93 countries. This year’s ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on 10 March, in a ceremony hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
