Margot Robbie, the talented Australian actress, has finally addressed the controversy surrounding this year’s Oscar nominations. Despite her latest project, Barbie, receiving eight nominations, fans were disappointed that Margot herself was not recognized in the Best Actress category.
However, Margot has taken the high road and shared her positive perspective on the situation. In a recent conversation with SAG-AFTRA, Margot expressed her gratitude for the blessings in her life, stating, “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”
While acknowledging the exceptional work of filmmaker Greta Gerwig, Margot believes that Greta should have received a Best Director nomination. She described Greta’s achievement as a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime accomplishment.
It’s important to note that both Margot and Greta have received Oscar nominations in the past, albeit in different categories. Margot has been recognized as a producer and Greta as a screenwriter. Margot expressed her excitement for all the films and individuals who received nominations, emphasizing the impact they have made on the industry and culture.
Margot’s focus is not solely on awards and nominations. She highlighted the significance of the reactions from the audience, stating, “People’s reactions to the movie have been the biggest reward of this entire experience.” Margot’s main goal is to create meaningful and impactful projects that resonate with audiences.
While Margot Robbie has garnered eight nominations at this year’s Oscars, it is worth mentioning that Oppenheimer, a one-time box office “rival,” leads the pack with 13 nominations. Poor Things follows closely with 11 nominations, and Killers Of The Flower Moon has received 10.
The 2024 Oscars are scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 10th. It will be a night to celebrate the incredible achievements of the film industry and honour the talent that has captivated audiences worldwide.
