The world of cinema is no easy place to etch a legacy on. A slew of charts filled with numbers and records that turn in the blink of an eye are major concerns for new entrants. Among the many celebrated legends in filmmaking, only a handful are women. However, in 2023, Greta Gerwig would stand out as a major force to be reckoned with. The 40-year-old director would go on to shake the Hollywood chokehold of major players with her Barbie alongside Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Now, in an emphatic show of dominance, the movie, its director, and its cast have gone on to bag several nominations for the Golden Globes 2024.

Not only have some of the most coveted nominations landed for the flick, but also a slew of others by a storm.

Taking cinema to new heights and propelling Greta Gerwig as the highest-grossing female director, Margot Robbie earned herself a fourth Golden Globe 2024 nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. Helming the lead role in the movie, the Wolf of Wall Street actress laid out a cementing performance as the fourth-wall-breaking doll of Mattel. However, to earn the title, she stands pitted against the likes of Emma Stone and Natalie Portman.

Stemming from an existential actress, the movie’s transition from a utopian world to the horrors of modern societal division came across as a staunch eye-opener. Grossing over $1.4 billion at the box office, Barbie also earned Robbie a $12.5 million paycheck. Moreover, its themes of equality, gender orientation, patriarchy, and a sense of general resentment in today’s lives echoed harmoniously among the audiences.
