"Of course I wanted Margot to be nominated. But I'm still happy that we will be there together", the director told the prestigious TIME magazine.

In addition to the fact that the movie "Barbie" had an undeniable success when it broke all the movie boxes in many countries of the world, Gerwig has said that it was inevitable that the movie would become a hit.

"I remember thinking that if it works, it will be an inevitable success," said Gerwig.

Even Margot said earlier that she feels disappointed that Gerwig was not nominated.

"Normally I thought Greta would be nominated because the work she did is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. But it's been an incredible year for all the movies," Robbie said.
