The Oscars snubbed Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig


January 24, 2024

Box office smash Barbie has received eight Oscar nominations – but its star Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig were snubbed in some major categories.

Gerwig missed out on being recognised in best director, but a nomination for Anatomy of a Fall’s Justine Triet meant the line-up was not entirely male.

This is also the first year women have directed three best picture nominees.

Oppenheimer scored the most nominations overall, followed by Poor Things and Killers of the Flower Moon.

TV host Jimmy Kimmel will host the Oscars ceremony from Los Angeles on 10 March.
