Margot Robbie doesn’t seem to care about her Oscar snub as Barbie and would rather sing Greta Gerwig’s praises

Barbie star Margot Robbie ain’t mad about the Oscar snub the Internet won’t shut up about, and would rather defend director Greta Gerwig and everything she’s achieved.

During the SAG-AFTRA discussion with her co-stars (via Variety), the actress was obviously asked about Barbie’s eight Oscar nominations and what many people believe is one of this edition’s biggest snubs – Robbie missing out on Best Actress. Since she was also a producer on the project, it seems she wasn’t too bothered by it, having said: “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”

She admitted, however, that she was kinda upset about writer-director Greta Gerwig being left out (again) of the Best Director category, in spite of her movie impressively outperforming across several groups and even landing a Best Picture nom. “Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director,” Robbie said, “What she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing. What she pulled off, it really is. But it’s been an incredible year for all the films.”
