[ # ] Ryan Gossling responds to the Oscars snubbing Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig
January 23rd, 2024 under Oscars, Ryan Gosling

Warner Bros

Today, AMPAS announced this year’s Oscar nominations, and the snubs were more shocking than who was nominated.

Barbie found itself nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year, and Ryan Gosling is up for Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for playing Ken.

Yet, Margot Robbie, who played the title character, and Greta Gerwig, who directed the Oscar-nominated film, were not on the list. Therefore, people were shocked and dismayed.

However, no one more than Gosling. So, he released a statement about them being ignored.

I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films. And I never thought I’d being saying this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken.

But 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.

Against all odds with nothing but a couple of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, they broke our hearts, they pushed the culture and they made history. Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees.

Having said that, I am so happy for America Ferrera and the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film.”

What do you think of the Academy doing a Ken to Barbie?

The Oscars air March 10th on ABC.

Hilarious and ridiculous. Awards are stupid but this is just silly.
