In the wake of yesterday’s Oscar nominations being announced, criticism has been swift and sharp about the lack of nominations for Margot Robbie as Best Actress and Greta Gerwig as Best Director.

The film managed to snag eight nominations overall, including acting nods for America Ferrera and Ryan Gosling, and was the fourth-most nominated film at the awards.

As Robbie produced and Gerwig co-wrote the film, both will be there Oscar night to potentially collect honors for the film.

Nonetheless, seemingly everyone has weighed in on the ‘snub’ in the two key categories – even Hilary Clinton who said a few hours ago on X:

“Greta & Margot, While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you. You’re both so much more than Kenough.”

It follows on from Gosling posting his own message saying Robbie and Gerwig are “the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally celebrated film”. He goes on to say:

“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.”

Fellow co-star Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Nicola Coughlan, composer Mark Ronson, and nominee America Ferrera and others have also commented, but the two people who have yet to weigh in are Robbie and Gerwig themselves.

This years Oscars will be announced on March 10th.
