However, the Academy was subjected to backlash, after Robbie and Gerwig weren’t nominated for Best Actress and Best Director, respectively.  

At the time, Gosling addressed the elephant in the room, explaining that he was “disappointed” that they were overlooked in the nominations. Even Whoopi Goldberg, an Oscar award-winner and former Academy board-member, chimed in on the situation

However, Robbie previously opened up about the situation in a Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) conversation with her co-stars. 

She said, as per Variety: “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.

“Obviously, I think Greta should be nominated as a director,” she added. “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.”

Robbie also added that she was “beyond ecstatic” about the other nominations the film has picked up. “Everyone getting the nods that they’ve had is just incredible, and the best picture nod,” she said.

Gosling is set to perform at the ceremony with “75 shirtless Kens” for his Oscars performance of Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt’s ‘I’m Just Ken’, according to People.

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas are also nominated for ‘What Was I Made For?’ from the same film, and will also be performing on the night.
