No one is living in a Barbie World over in the United Kingdom tonight as “Barbie” just got shut out at the British Academy Film Awards. The biggest blockbuster of last summer was up for five awards at the show Sunday — Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Original Screenplay along with a couple of other design awards. Unfortunately, the film’s creators are walking away without a single one — going 0-for-5 at the ceremony that’s usually a pretty good indication of the way Academy Awards voters are gonna lean.

Key Takeaway

“Barbie” faced disappointment at the BAFTA Awards 2024, failing to secure any of the five nominations it received. The snub was particularly significant in light of the controversy surrounding the absence of nominations for Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie. The film is now looking towards the Oscars for better luck.

Snubs at the Ceremony

“Barbie” isn’t the only awards season darling that got snubbed tonight. Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” lost all nine of its nominations while “Maestro” didn’t win one of its seven awards. But, the “Barbie” snubs feel the most significant, given the firestorm that popped off after Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie weren’t nominated for Best Director and Best Actress respectively. Remember, everyone from random X users to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton chimed in on “Barbie” not receiving those particular nominations. Margot later broke her silence on Greta’s snub, even more poignant since GG was left off the nomination list for the BAFTAs as well.

“Barbie” is up for eight Oscars at this year’s ceremony. Hopefully for fans, the movie has better luck there.
