Fans unleash on the Academy over Oscar 2024 snubs

Barbie fans have been left fuming to learn that both Greta and Margot weren't nominated in the Directing and Best Actress categories, respectively, with many taking to social media to share their thoughts.

"I am genuinely feeling depressed over the Barbie Oscar nomination snubs, especially Greta’s, like what do women have to do in this world to be simply recognized," one fan wrote.

"Barbie getting 8 Oscar nominations but not giving Greta Gerwig her well deserved Best Director nomination showcasing once again why the movie was necessary and perfectly done because how can you snub the director of the highest grossing movie of the year," another added.

"That line from #Barbie hits even harder now with that Greta Gerwig snub for the Director Oscar: 'We have to always be extraordinary but somehow we’re always doing it wrong.' The Academy is the one that got it wrong though," a third said.

"Every year - the Oscars snub women behind the camera - but Greta Gerwig - come on!!!!! The Oscars really hate women," someone else said.

Others chose to look at it more positively, with one fan writing, "Greta Gerwig’s directing Oscar snub sucks, but I gotta say….directing only three movies so far in your life and ALL THREE (ALL THREE!) have been nominated for Best Picture….is insane. I am choosing to focus on that today."

Fans also shared their heartbreak over Margot's snub, with one fan writing, "This Barbie is furious about Margot Robbie’s Oscar snub. As an actress she was the beating heart of the film and literally BECAME Barbie, and as a producer she was one of the film’s biggest champions."

"I feel like Academy voters viewed #Barbie as a purely commercial movie and didn't recognize any of its layers or nuance," another said. "Every year has a snub and I don't want to take away from the nominees, but Margot & Greta missing out doesn't feel right."

"You [The Academy] will never be forgiven for the Margot snub," a third said. "Y'all want to try and find ways to make the #Oscars relevant to younger and more diverse audiences and then you go and snub the two women who conceived and brought Barbie to our screens with unprecedented success?"

Oscar nominee America Ferrera shares 'disappointment' at Margot and Greta snubs

Barbie's America Ferrera, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress, shared her 'disappointment' at Margot and Greta's snubs.

"I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated," she told Variety. "Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it.

"Creating this world, and taking something that didn’t have inherent value to most people and making it a global phenomenon. It feels disappointing to not see her on that list.

"What Margot achieved as an actress is truly unbelievable," she added of her co-star. "One of the things about Margot as an actress is how easy she makes everything look. And perhaps people got fooled into thinking that the work seems easy, but Margot is a magician as an actress in front of the screen, and it was one of the honors of my career to get to witness her pull off the amazing performance she did. She brings so much heart and humor and depth and joy and fun to the character. In my book, she’s a master."

Barbie is one of three films directed by women that are nominated for Best Picture, as well as Justine Triet's Anatomy of a Fall and Celine Song's Past Lives. Despite Greta and Celine being snubbed from Best Director, this year marks the first time in history that three female directors' films have been nominated in the Best Picture category.

Other huge Oscars snubs

While fans have been shocked by Greta and Margot's snubs, they were also stunned to see several other films and stars who weren't nominated.

Saltburn received zero nominations, despite receiving several nominations and awards throughout the awards season for stars Barry Keoghan and Rosamund Pike and director Emerald Fennell.

May December received one nomination for Best Original Screenplay but Julianne Moore and Charles Melton were snubbed in the Best Supporting Actor and Actress categories.

Despite Killers of the Flower Moon being nominated in several categories, Leonardo DiCaprio missed out in the Best Actor category. It comes after he also missed out on SAG and BAFTA nominations.

Past Lives star Greta Lee also missed out on a nomination for Best Actress even though she'd received several nominations through the award season.

Where to watch the 2024 Oscars?

The Oscars will be broadcast live AEDT on Channel 7 and 7plus on Monday, 11 March, with an encore screening that night after Australian Idol.

Our Oscars predictions

Poor Things

The Yahoo Lifestyle team has shared their thoughts on who will take out some of the big categories:

Marni - While I was disappointed to see Saltburn missed out on any nominations (which is criminal in my opinion), I absolutely loved Poor Things, so I would love to see that take out Best Picture, though Oppenheimer will probably win. When it comes to directing, I'd also love to see Yorgos Lanthimos win for Poor Things, but it will probably be Christopher Nolan or Martin Scorsese. It probably comes as little surprise that I'd also love to see Emma Stone win Best Actress for Poor Things. When it comes to the Best Actor category, I feel like Cillian Murphy will take that out. Da’Vine Joy Randolph could take out Best Supporting Actress as she's had a great awards show run lately, and then I can see Robert Downey Jr or Robert DeNiro winning Best Supporting Actor, though it would be so great to see Ryan Gosling or Mark Ruffalo win!

Lachlan - While Oppenheimer has been sweeping the awards season so far (and will most likely take out Best Picture), I’d love to see the three-and-a-half-hour thriller Killers of The Flower Moon or hilariously inappropriate dramedy Poor Things win the award. These two films also feature my equal frontrunners for Best Actress, Lily Gladstone and Emma Stone, who each won their respective Golden Globe categories earlier this month. For Best Actor, I’m rooting for Paul Giamatti in The Holdovers, and with May December’s Charles Melton snubbed from Best Supporting Actor, I’ll give my vote to Poor Things’ Mark Ruffalo. Best Supporting Actress is the most difficult category for me to predict as I adored Jodie Foster in Nyad and Da’Vine Joy Randolph in The Holdovers, but I’m crossing my fingers Danielle Brooks wins for her heartbreaking yet endearing performance in The Color Purple.
