Ken also regrets the absence of Barbie at the Oscars

The Oscar nominations came and boosted, as expected, Oppenheimer. They also celebrated the diversity of Spanish cinema (with two nominations for The Snow Society and Robot Dreams in the animation category), and confirmed the phenomenon of Anatomy of a Fall . Among so much joy there was something strange: despite the fact that Barbie received 8 nominations, including Best Picture, its two main creators did not manage to make it into the finalist quintet in their respective categories. Not even Greta Gerwig, the great savior of the box office and author of the phenomenon of the year, achieved the nomination for Best Director; Not even Margot Robbie, the Barbie of the title, won Best Leading Actress.

To make more damage, the one who did manage to be nominated was Ryan Gosling for Best Supporting Actor. That is, in a movie about Barbie, directed by a woman, and starring Barbie, the nominee is… Ken. Ironically, that's all what Barbie talks about. About patriarchy, how complicated it is for women, what is demanded of them and how it is never enough. That Ken can win an Oscar without Barbie being nominated seems like a joke written by Greta Gerwig (who is nominated for the award for her screenplay for the film).

The ignoring of Robbie has been especially commented on, and fans of the film and social networks have been on fire after learning of the nominations. Even Ken has regretted Barbie's absence at the Oscars. Ryan Gosling has issued a statement thanking him for his candidacy and expressing his happiness, but also his surprise and sadness that his partner and director are not there. “To say I'm disappointed they weren't nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement,” Gosling says.

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 film that has made history

“I never thought I would say this, but I feel incredibly honored and proud to have been nominated for playing a plastic doll called Ken,” he says at the beginning of his text and then claims his colleagues: “But 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 film that has made history and has been recognized worldwide.”

“No recognition would be possible for anyone in this film without their talent and courage. Against all odds, with nothing more than a pair of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, broke our hearts, advanced culture, and made history. "Her work should be recognized along with that of other nominees who also deserve it," she continues to conclude by adding her joy for the film's other nominee, America Ferrera, who surprised us as best Supporting Actress.

Gosling places the focus once again on the lack of women among the nominees in a year that, although it has three films by female directors among the ten finalists for Best Picture, only has one among those for Best Director (Triet).
