Actress Margot Robbie, star of 2023’s top-grossing film, Barbie, has broken her silence on her Oscar snub for best actress.

The movie received eight Oscar nominations, including for best picture, best supporting actor and best supporting actress.

Fans, though, were dismayed she was overlooked for her title role.

But Robbie, who is also one of the movie’s producers, said on Wednesday she was not sad.

Speaking in a SAG-AFTRA discussion with co-stars, the Australian actress and producer said: “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.”

She said the mission of the movie was to “affect culture” and that is the “biggest reward” that has come out of the film’s success.

Robbie suggested she was more upset about Barbie director Greta Gerwig not receiving an Academy Award nomination for directing. Gerwig has been nominated for best adapted screenplay.
