Ryan Gosling voices discontent over Greta and Margot snub at Oscars 2024
The actor issued a statement expressing his disappointment over the Oscars 2024 snubs for his Barbie co-stars, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie. Ryan Gosling, nominated for Best Supporting Actor alongside America Ferrera, addressed the absence of Greta Gerwig in the Best Director category and Margot Robbie in the Best Actress category.
While expressing gratitude for his own nomination, the Barbie star highlighted the significance of Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie in the success of Barbie. The actor humourously acknowledged the unexpected honour of being recognised for playing a plastic doll named Ken.
He further continued by saying, "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."
