Nominee Ryan Gosling SLAMS the Academy for Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig’s Oscars snub in extraordinary statement


OSCAR – Ryan Gosling released a statement on Tuesday expressing his disappointment after his Barbie co-star Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig were snubbed by the Oscars.

Gosling, 43, who himself was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Ken in the film, shared that the movie would not exist without Margot, 33, and Greta, 40.

Why he Said What he Said

‘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.’

‘Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees,’ he declared.  

Statement from an Insider

A source said Ryan ‘believes that his role was so well received thanks to the work that [Margot and Greta] did, making his performance Oscar-worthy in the first place.’ 

‘He is ecstatic that he was honored but it is bittersweet that his enjoyment can’t be shared with Greta and Margot in the next few months because they were snubbed.’ 

Going Forward

The source added the father-of-two will perform I’m Just Ken during the ceremony and ‘may incorporate his feelings on Margot and Greta not getting nominated.’ 

Gosling began his statement by expressing gratitude for his nomination. ‘I am extremely honored 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 honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken,’ he shared.

The actor then went on to share his disappointment at Margot and Greta not being nominated, before praising them for their work on the film.

‘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.’

Nevertheless, he Congratulated Others

Lastly, he congratulated his other co-star America Ferrera, who received the Best Supporting Actress nod. ‘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.’

However, some fans were left unimpressed with Gosling’s statement, with one fan even calling for him to withdraw his nomination in protest, writing, ‘It would be a powerful statement if he withdrew his name from consideration.’
