Ryan Gosling shares 'disappointment' after Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig snubbed at Oscars

Ryan Gosling shares 'disappointment' after Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig snubbed at Oscars

The 'Ken' actor has voiced his displeasure at seeing his co-star and director being overlooked for the awards

It looks like fans weren't the only ones surprised that Margot Robbie and Barbie director Greta Gerwig were left out of the Oscar nominations.

Ryan Gosling also shared his opinion at the snub, adding that he was 'disappointed' with the decision.

Barbie was undoubtedly one of the movies of 2023, grossing almost $1.5 billion (£1.3 billion) at the box office, beating out the likes of Oppenheimer.

Despite this, Robbie wasn't nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars or Gerwig for Best Director - although both are still receiving nominations for Producer for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

The silver lining is that Gosling was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Ken in the movie, while America Ferrera is also up for Best Supporting Actress.

However, fans have already shared their outrage at the omissions, with many suggesting that this snub 'justified the plot of the entire movie' - in an unfortunate case of life imitating art.

And Gosling has since spoken his thoughts on the situation.

The Notebook star began by saying that he was 'honoured' to be nominated alongside 'such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films', and even more so for 'portraying a plastic doll named Ken'.

He continued: "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.”

Gosling continued to say that the film wouldn't be what it was 'without their talent, grit and genius', adding: "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."

He then went on to congratulate his co-star and fellow nominee, Ferrera, saying how 'happy' he was for her and 'the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film'.

Similar to Gosling, Ferrera shared her thoughts, saying that she was also 'incredibly disappointed' adding: "Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it."

In regards to Robbie, she described the Suicide Squad star as a 'magician as an actress in front of the screen'.

When the nominations were announced, fans were pretty shocked.

One user saying they couldn't believe 'Margot Robbie was overlooked', while others replied to the Oscars' announcement to say 'someone's missing'.
