Hillary Clinton is being mocked on social media for comparing herself to Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, who both were not nominated for individual Academy Awards for their work on “Barbie.”

“Greta & Margot, While it can sting to win the box office but not take home the gold, your millions of fans love you. You’re both so much more than Kenough. #HillaryBarbie,” the former Democratic presidential candidate shared on X.

Clinton’s replies were flooded with people deriding her for making the comparison and reminding the 76-year-old politician about the massive error she made by not campaigning in Wisconsin ahead of the 2016 election, which many analysts believe is a major reason she lost to Donald Trump.

“Margot really should’ve visited Wisconsin,” one popular reply says.

“How dare those other women get nominated. This is just more proof of sexism in the entertainment industry,” another says.

“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,” another comment said. “Oppenheimer was a much better film. And Trump a better candidate.”


“Oppenheimer” had the most Oscar nominations this year with 13 total, including Best Picture and Best Director. The second most-nominated film was “Poor Things” with 11. “Barbie” received eight, including the coveted Best Picture, but fans were annoyed that the film’s lead actress, Robbie, didn’t get put in the running for Best Actress and that Gerwig wasn’t a contender for Best Director.

Meanwhile, the film’s male lead, Ryan Gosling, did get chosen as a nominee for Best Supporting Actor. “Barbie” actress America Ferrara was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

This news comes after “Barbie” filmmakers fought to have it submitted into the “Original Screenplay” category but failed. Since it was classified as an Adapted Screenplay, the film will compete against impressive contenders, including both “Poor Things” and Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer,” making it much harder to score a win.

The Oscars is set to air on Sunday, March 10, and will again be hosted by late-night star Jimmy Kimmel.
