Hit movie "Barbie" topped the box office this summer and its lead star Margot Robbie received critics' praise for her performance as the real-life Barbie.
While Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera were nominated in the supporting acting categories for their roles as Ken and Gloria, Barbie herself, Margot Robbie, did not receive an acting nomination.
Director Greta Gerwig, who has been praised for her film adaptation of the beloved doll, also did not receive an Oscar nomination for best director.
"[Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig's] work should be recognized along with the other very deserving nominees," Gosling said in a statement. "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."
"Barbie" was nominated for eight total Academy Awards, including best picture.
The 96th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air on ABC on Sunday, March 10, live from the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood.
The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of ABC and this station.
