Acclaimed director Greta Gerwig has broken her silence on the Oscars ‘snub’

Gerwig, 40, told Time that despite missing out on the Best Director nomination for the film Barbie, and Barbie star Margot Robbie missing out on a nomination in the Best Actress category, she’s still thrilled over her other nomination.

“A friend’s mum said to me, ‘I can’t believe you didn’t get nominated,'” Gerwig told the publication.

“I said, ‘But I did. I got an Oscar nomination.’ She was like, ‘Oh, that’s wonderful for you!’ I was like, ‘I know!'”

She added about Robbie’s ‘snub’: “Of course I wanted it for Margot. But I’m just happy we all get to be there together.”

It comes after Aussie actress Robbie, 33, broke her silence on the ‘snub’.

As reported by Deadline, the star addressed the controversy during a panel at a special SAG-AFTRA screening.

“There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed,” Robbie said.

She said she is “beyond ecstatic that we’ve got eight Academy Award nominations, it’s so wild”.

Robbie, however, said she wishes Gerwig was nominated for Best Director.

“Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director, because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is,” Robbie said.

She added that she wanted to make a film that would “shift culture” and said she believes Barbie does that.

The film is nominated for Best Picture and her production company LuckyChap Entertainment was behind the film.

Barbie was the film of 2023, inspiring fuchsia-clad cinema visits, iconic press tour looks and dominating the global box office – so the lack of Oscar nods for Robbie has confused a lot of fans.

“I am extremely honoured 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 honoured and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken,” Gosling said in a statement.

“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,” his statement continued.

“No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius.”

Gosling said he believes Robbie and Gerwig’s work should have been recognised with Oscar nods and is “disappointed” to see them be passed over.

“Their work should be recognised along with the other very deserving nominees,” he added in part of his statement.

“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.”
