She added of Robbie: “What Margot has achieved as an actress is truly incredible. One of the things that sets Margot apart as an actress is how easy she makes everything look. People may be fooled into thinking the work looks easy, but Margot is magical as an actress on screen, and it has been the honor of my career to watch her give the amazing performance she did. She brings so much heart, humor, depth, joy and fun to the character. In my book, she’s a lady.”
These were Ferreira’s casual but serious comments to a question during an interview about her candidacy. However, Gosling, her Kane co-star, went so far as to publicly rebuke AMPAS for ignoring Robbie and Gerwig’s contributions to a global phenomenon.
“I am extremely honored to be nominated by my peers alongside these outstanding artists in a year filled with so many amazing films,” Gosling wrote. “And I never thought I’d say this, but I also feel incredibly proud and honored to have portrayed a plastic doll named Ken. But there’s no Ken without Barbie, and there’s no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making movie.” And celebrated globally.To say I’m disappointed they weren’t nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.
He continued, “Against all odds, with nothing but a few soulless, naked dolls, thankfully, they made us laugh, broke our hearts, pushed culture and made history. Their work should be recognized alongside other very deserving nominees.”
In terms of cultural influence, it is difficult to argue this point. Naturally, some on social media found a way, even by discussing it unfriendly Barbie The actor is more deserving of that. But we point out that each of the three categories of representation Barbie She was able to compete in — actress, supporting actress, and supporting actor — and it had incredibly different dynamics. The best Actress award was particularly tough this year, with Emma Stone, Lily Gladstone and Carey Mulligan heavily favored to be nominated, and it was Sandra Holler’s turn. Anatomy of a fall Being a force in itself. Robbie faced stiff competition only to finish fifth Past life Likewise breakout Greta Lee was overlooked in favor of Annette Bening.
Meanwhile, Gosling has long been a front-runner in the best Supporting Actor category, where he was always seen as one of the nominees alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Robert De Niro. Although the fact that a male performance in a comedy about Barbie dolls is the “obvious” candidate brings to mind a line of dialogue in the film after Ken asks one of the business managers if they don’t practice patriarchy anymore at his company. “No, we do it well!” The bearded CEO laughs. “We hide it better now.”
