Annoyed by Barbie's Oscar snub? be with you

When the Oscar nominations were announced on January 23, the two leading ladies of "Barbie " failed to make the cut. Greta Gerwig was left off the best director list, and Margot Robbie failed to make the five-person shortlist for best actress. The film grossed over $1 billion worldwide and received a total of eight Oscar nominations, behind only "Oppenheimer," " Poor Things " and "Killers of the Flower Moon."

But as the two women largely responsible for bringing Mattel dolls to life were snubbed, fans and celebrities were upset and made their displeasure known — including supporting actor nominees America Ferrera and Ryan ·Gosling.

Fortunately, both women were nominated in other categories: Robbie served as a producer on the film; Gerwig co-wrote the screenplay with Noah Baumbach.
