Ryan Gosling from Barbie is ‘disappointed’ that Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie were not nominated

“Disappointed” is how actor Ryan Gosling has described his feelings on Barbie’s Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie not being nominated for major Oscars. For “portraying a plastic doll named Ken,” Gosling claimed he was “honoured” to be nominated for best supporting actor. “But there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.” Many had anticipated that Robbie and Gerwig would receive nominations for best actress and best director, respectively.

However, nods were given to the two in other places. Robbie received recognition for her work as a producer in the best film category, and Gerwig and her husband Noah Baumbach received nominations for best adapted screenplay. “I am extremely honoured to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films,” Gosling said in a statement to CBS, the BBC’s US media partner. The Canadian actor called Robbie and Gerwig “the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally-celebrated film” at the same moment. Without their talent, perseverance, and genius, none of the actors on the movie could have received any fame.

It would be an understatement to say that I’m sad that they are not receiving nominations in their respective categories. “Against all odds, they made history, broke our hearts, made us laugh, and defied society with nothing more than a few soulless, skimpily dressed, and mercifully crotchless dolls. Together with the other extremely worthy nominees, their work should be acknowledged. However, Gosling added that he was “so happy” for America Ferrera – who received a surprise nomination for best supporting actress – as well as the other “incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film.”
