There is no Ken without Barbie. Actor Ryan Gosling is disappointed to learn about Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig's recent Oscars snub.

Gosling, 43, who was nominated for the Best Supporting Role for his role of Ken in the film, said that the movie would not exist without Robbie and Gerwig.

In a statement, Gosling expressed his disapointed saying that Robbie and Gerwig's work should be recognised along with other deserving nominees.

"I am extremely honoured to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists in a year of so many great films.

"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.

"No recognisation would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit and genius," he said.

The actor was critical towards the Academy about Margot and Greta not receiving nominations but praised them for their exceptional work on the film.

"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," he added.

The nominations for the 2024 Oscars were recently announced, which saw many artists being nominated.

Barbie received a total of eight nominations, but the two individuals (Margot and Greta) responsible for bringing it to the screen did not receive recognition at the Oscars.

However, Robbie faced a double snub for the Oscars 2024 since he is the actress and producer for Barbie movie.

Despite gaining international recognition, Saltburn was notably overlooked at the 2024 Oscars marking one of the many unexpected snubs.

It failed to secure any Academy Award nominations, including for its lead actor, 31-year-old Barry Keoghan, who rose to prominence for his portrayal of Oxford student Oliver Quick.
