Ryan Gosling announces that Barbie will be snubbed at the Oscars

Ryan Gosling announces that Barbie will be snubbed at the Oscars

The 96th Academy Awards are scheduled to be held on March 10 in Los Angeles. As usual, nominations for the Golden Statues are announced a month and a half in advance. The film “Oppenheimer”, directed by Christopher Nolan, topped the list of favorites of members of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with 13 nominations. They are followed by Giorgos Lanthimos' “Poor Things” with 11 nominations, Martin Scorsese's “The Killers of the Blooming Moon” with 10 nominations, and the much-publicized “Barbie” with 8 nominations.

The cast of “Barbie” is looking to pick up some awards in the categories it's nominated in, thanks in part to Ryan Gosling's work as Ken. After all, at the Critics' Choice Awards, the artist won the award for “Best Original Song” for “I'm Kane.”

Response from the Oscars

The Oscars snubbed the director who set a record with major Oscar nominations for Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.

The actor felt the need to protest publicly

Ryan Gosling said when asked by CBS that he was “honored” to be nominated for Best Supporting Actor at this year's Academy Awards for his “portrayal of a plastic doll named Ken.” “But there's no Ken without Barbie, and there's no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.”

Director Kane said: “I am honored to join my colleagues alongside these distinguished artists in a year that includes so many wonderful films.”

The film was the highest grossing film of 2023, earning $1.44 billion worldwide.

Meanwhile, the Canadian actor described Gerwig and Robbie as “the two people primarily responsible for this world-famous, history-making film. It would not be possible to recognize anyone in the film without their talent, flair and genius. It's an understatement to say that I'm disappointed that they weren't nominated in their categories.” Special would be an understatement. In defiance of all logic, and with only a few lifeless, scantily clad dolls fortunately at their disposal, they made us laugh, broke our hearts, and pushed our culture even further, And they made history. “Their work should be recognized alongside other deserving nominees,” Ryan Gosling said.

However, he added that he was “very happy” for actress America Ferrera, nominated for Best Supporting Actress, as well as “the other amazing artists who contributed their talents to the making of such a groundbreaking film.”

He will not allow his children to watch the movie “Barbie”

The actor is very proud of this work, but in a recent interview he explained why he does not allow his daughters to see the film. According to the MPA's suitability rating, Barbie is not suitable for children under 13 due to the type of content that may appear in the plot.

Gosling and Eva Mendes' little girls are now seven and nine. But the reason is completely different. The actor did not allow his daughters to see “Barbie” because he thought it was not a good idea “to see your father in the role of Ken.” In addition, he points out, “I don’t know what is the appropriate age to see your father do what happens in the movie.”

And all this despite the fact that his children were the reason for his approval of the film.

The song that won the award for Best Original Song:

“The patriarchy has the last laugh.”

After this year's Oscar nominations were announced, Piers Morgan made some particularly scathing comments to express his happiness that the Academy snubbed Barbie this year.

The English radio journalist, when the film was released in cinemas with an article in the New York Post, commented on it negatively, saying among other things: “If you make a film that treats women the way Barbie treats men, feminists will do it.” You like to execute me.”

Morgan mocked the two women (Robbie and Gerwig) who failed to get nominations for this year's Oscars, even when Ryan Gosling was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, saying: “They snubbed Greta and Margot. The patriarchy has the last laugh.”
