Gosling says he feels “extremely honored to have been nominated by his peers alongside such notable artists in a year of so many excellent films. And I never thought I’d say this, but I’m also incredibly honored and proud to portray a plastic doll named Ken.”

However, the Oscar nominee highlights that “There is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie film without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this historical film and celebrated worldwide. No recognition would be possible for anyone in the film without their talent, courage and genius.”

Ryan Gosling further states: “To say I’m disappointed they weren’t nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement. Against all odds, with nothing but a pair of soulless, scantily clad and, thankfully, crotchless dolls, they made us laugh, broke our hearts, boosted culture and made history. Your work should be recognized alongside the other very deserving nominees.”

Gosling ends by saying he is very happy to “America Ferrera and for the other incredible artists who contributed their talents to make this film so groundbreaking.”
