Does ‘Barbie’ Deserve an Academy Award?

Does ‘Barbie’ Deserve an Academy Award?

Here’s The Scoop

Hillary Clinton, in a desperate attempt to stay relevant, has taken to social media to compare herself to Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, who both failed to secure individual Academy Award nominations for their work on “Barbie.”

The former Democratic presidential candidate shared a message of solidarity, stating that despite their lack of recognition, they are loved by millions of fans.

However, Clinton’s tweet backfired as her replies were flooded with people mocking her for the comparison and reminding her of her own colossal failure in the 2016 election.

One popular reply quipped, “Margot really should’ve visited Wisconsin,” referencing Clinton’s infamous campaign blunder.

Other comments pointed out the absurdity of her comparison, with one stating, “Barbie was a bad movie. Just because it made a lot of money doesn’t make it good or a winner. Similarly, just because Hillary Clinton got a lot of votes doesn’t make her good or President of the United States.”

Despite the backlash, “Barbie” did receive eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. However, fans were disappointed that Robbie was not nominated for Best Actress and Gerwig was not considered for Best Director.

The film’s male lead, Ryan Gosling, did secure a nomination for Best Supporting Actor, while America Ferrara was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

The “Barbie” filmmakers had fought for the film to be submitted in the “Original Screenplay” category but were unsuccessful. As a result, it will compete against strong contenders in the Adapted Screenplay category, such as “Poor Things” and Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer.”

The Oscars, set to air on Sunday, March 10, will once again be hosted by late-night star Jimmy Kimmel. Meanwhile, Clinton’s misguided attempt at solidarity serves as a reminder of her continuous struggle to connect with the public.

    The awards are for the “best” not the “popular”. I would’ve been sorely disappointed had “Barbie” received any nominations and would’ve considered the Academy to have become a bad joke, much like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame became when they inducted Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. This is only further reinforced every time they induct some rap or hiphop act. The Academy has already suffered enough credibility damage in their drive for diversity over substance. “Barbie” could’ve been the last straw.

    Like Barbie, Hillary Clinton is nothing but a dumb blonde.

    If “Barbie” wins an Academy Award for ANYTHING, it’ll just prove how worthless the Oscar is now.
