Life isn’t a fair game for Whoopi Goldberg, and Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig’s Oscars snub isn’t a big deal. The talk show co-host, known for her no-nonsense personality, highlighted that the Academy Awards did not vote for these women. She claimed, “Not everybody gets a prize.”

Barbie’s Ryan Gosling Expresses Disappointment

Greta, the writer and director of Barbie, collaborated with Margot, who played Barbie, and Ryan, who played Ken, in a film that has achieved immense success. Barbie has gained attention both at the box office and for its feminist themes. However, Greta and Margot were snubbed in their respective categories for this year’s Oscars. Neither of them received nominations for Best Director or Best Actress. On the other hand, as reported by TIME, Ryan and America Ferrera, fellow cast members, earned spots in the Best Supporting Actor/Actress list.

While acknowledging the Oscars snub, Ryan praised the entire team, including Greta and Margot. He emphasized that their brilliant minds brought the film to life. In his statement, he added, “To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.”

Whoopi refused to see the insensitivity in Margot and Greta’s Oscars snub. The co-host maintained that it was not a snub during her time on The View. She refused to play the victim card and chimed in, “They’re not snubs… it’s the entire Academy Awards family who votes… Everybody! So, there are seven to ten nominations that happen, and you don’t get everything that you want to get.”

According to Whoopi, “Not everybody gets a prize, and it is subjective.” She explained that not everyone likes the same movie, and their preferences would influence their votes. Therefore, getting disappointed would be an unnecessary joke.
