Though Margot Robbie wasn't nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Barbie — and Greta Gerwig didn't receive a Best Director nomination — the actress is still proud of what the film represents.
Robbie is "beyond ecstatic" the film received eight Academy Award nominations. "It's so wild," she added.
She added that she is “beyond ecstatic that we’ve got eight Academy Award nominations — it’s so wild."
"Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is. But it’s been an incredible year for all the films," she added of Gerwig.
Robbie noted the flick, which made more than $1 billion at the box office, is "bigger than us" and "bigger than our industry."
She added that Barbie has done "way more than we ever dreamed it would, and that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this."
After the snub came out in January, America Ferrera, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress after portraying a mom named Gloria in Barbie, spoke out about her castmates.
"Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie made history and raised the bar with Barbie," Ferrera, 39, said in a statement. "The cultural and industry impact they’ve achieved will be felt for generations and I’m so thankful to them for asking me to be a part of it."
"I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films. And I never thought I’d being saying this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud that it’s for portraying a plastic doll named Ken," Gosling wrote in a statement. "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."

His message continued: "No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius. To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement. Against all odds with nothing but a couple of soulless, scantily clad, and thankfully crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, they broke our hearts, they pushed the culture and they made history."
"Their work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees," Gosling declared, concluding, "having said that, I am so happy for America Ferrera and the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to making this such a groundbreaking film."
