“There’s no reason to be sad when you know you’re so blessed,” Robbie said during a Screen Actors Guild special screening of Barbie, according to Deadline.
Also, the actress spoke about the absence from the best director nominations of Greta Gerwig, director of the film.
“Obviously I think Greta should be nominated for Best Director because what she did is once in your career, once in a lifetime, what she did is real. But it’s been an incredible year for all the movies,” continued Robbie.
In total, the movie “Barbie” is nominated in 8 categories, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress.
The actress, who is up for the golden statuette as a producer and Greta Gerwig for the best adapted screenplay, emphasized that she is “extremely excited that we have eight Oscar nominations.”
It is noted that “Barbie” became the highest-grossing film of 2023 after bringing in $1.4 billion at the global box office.
“We set out to do something that would change the culture, impact the culture, just have some kind of impact,” the famous actress also said and added. “And it has already become that, and it has become something much more than we ever dreamed. And that’s really the biggest reward that could come out of all of this.”
