Ryan Gosling was applauded in Barbie’s first reaction; call for oscar nominations

The premiere of Barbie was held last night and the first reactions to Greta Gerwig’s latest film are in. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are getting a lot of praise – especially in the latter’s case.

Barbie follows the eponymous doll (Robbie) on a journey to find true happiness with Ken (Gosling). Dua Lipa, Issa Rae, Emma Mackey, and Kate McKinnon also star in various variations of the doll, while Simu Liu, John Cena, and Kingsley Ben-Adir star in various variations of Kane.

Filmmaker Ben Meckler was very pleased with the Barbie, calling it a “knockout”. He continued by saying that “Gosling steals the show” and that he “loved” the film.

Another critic called Barbie Gosling’s “best role ever”, adding that Gerwig took the best parts of her past and “combined them into one super-Gosling.” He added that “the Oscar talk is real” and that if it happens, it would be “one of the funniest and most inspired nominations in recent memory.”

Perry Nemiroff of Collider commended Barbie’s craftsmanship—especially the costume and production design work which he called “next-level work”—but found the story a bit mixed. He added, “I think the film captures Margot Robbie’s Barbie and her journey particularly well, but the other characters are also experiencing turning points that take more time to really dig into and fully explore.” Screen time is needed.”

Lastly, Jamie Zirak called Barbie his “favorite film of the year” and said that it somehow exceeded his expectations. “Give Ryan Gosling an Oscar nomination, I’m serious!” Jirac concluded.

Barbie will be released on July 21.
