Robert Downey Jr. backs Margot Robbie amid Oscar snub, says she deserves more credit for ‘Barbie’

Robert Downey Jr. joins others in acknowledging Margot Robbie's lack of recognition in the Oscar nominees. During a SAG-AFTRA conversation with Sterling K. Brown and Willem Dafoe on YouTube, he said, ‘Margot Robbie’s not getting enough credit, in my opinion.’

The 'Oppenheimer' star, nominated for Best Supporting Actor, for his performance in the Christopher Nolan-directed film, further discussed the nuances of Robbie’s performance in ‘Barbie’ that he felt were overlooked.

‘America (Ferrera) has this amazing speech – and by the way, she nails it – I’m watching and I go, ‘Wow!’ Like, that was a really tough one. That was like a little one act play, the whole movie hinges on it,’ he said, in reference to Ferrera’s character’s now-famous monologue toward the end of ‘Barbie.’

Robert Downey Jr. highlighted Margot Robbie's skill in actively listening during Ferrera's speech, recognizing Greta Gerwig's direction. He emphasized Robbie's trust in the process.

Earlier this month, there was widespread outcry over Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig not receiving individual Oscar nominations in lead actress and best director categories for their roles in the film.

Gerwig secured a nod for best-adapted screenplay, and Robbie, as a producer, received a best picture nomination. However, there was considerable outrage, including from Robbie's co-star Ryan Gosling, regarding their individual snubs.

‘To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement,’ Gosling said in a statement, reacting to his own Oscar nomination for his performance as Ken.

The 'Barbie' movie received eight nominations, with a surprise nod for America Ferrera in the supporting actress category.

When is the Oscars?

The Oscars ceremony is scheduled for March 10 in Hollywood, with Jimmy Kimmel returning as the host.
