Ferrera, who played Gloria in the smash film, told Variety on Tuesday, “I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated.”

“Greta has done just about everything a director could do to deserve it,” she said. “Creating this world and making something few people valued a global phenomenon. It’s sad not to see her on that list.”

Robbie and Gerwig were left out of the best director and best actress categories, while Ferrera was nominated for best supporting actress.

Margot makes everything look effortless as an actress. She added that many may have thought the work was easy.

But Margot is a magician as an actress on screen, and it was one of my career honours to see her perform so well.”

Eight Oscar nominations were given to the female-led film, including one for Ryan Gosling for best supporting actor.

Ryan Gosling was nominated for his role as Ken in the summer blockbuster.

After hearing the news, Gosling discussed the snubs.

“I am extremely honoured to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films,” Gosling told The Post.

“And I never thought I’d be saying this, but I’m also incredibly honoured and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken,” he said. “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 history-making, globally celebrated film.”

“The Notebook” star said, “No one on the film would be recognised without talent, grit, and genius. I’m devastated they weren’t recognised in their categories.”

“Despite having only two soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, break our hearts, push culture, and make history. Their work deserves recognition alongside the other deserving nominees.”
