Barbenheimer Emily Blunt Ryan Gosling

Two stars of the biggest movie rivalry in recent memory, Emily Blunt, and Ryan Gosling, took some time at Sunday’s Academy Awards to roast each other over the Barbenheimer rivalry. Blunt, who plays Kitty Oppenheimer in the critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan movie, and Gosling, who plays Ken in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, took to the stage to present the tribute to the industry’s stunt performers.

“Here’s Ken and Kitty, just leaving all that fodder in the dust guys, right?” Emily Blunt began the roasting, “And the way this awards season’s turned out, wasn’t that much of a rivalry,”

“I think I figured out why they called it Barbenheimer and not OppenBarbie,” Gosling responded, “I think you guys are at the tail end ‘cause you were riding Barbie’s coattails all summer,”

In January, Margot Robbie and Cillian Murphy, stars of Barbie and Oppenheimer, respectively, spoke to each other in Variety’s series Actors on Actors about the rivalry. Murphy explained that all of Nolan’s films are released around July 21st, the same date that Barbie was scheduled for release.

“I remember one of your producers, Chuck Roven, called me ‘cause we worked together on some other projects,” Robbie explained how Roven attempted to convince her to move the date of Barbie, “if you’re scared to be up against us then you move your date,’”

The Barbie star and producer commented that she thought Barbenheimer was “a really great pairing,”

“That was a good instinct,” Murphy remarked.

Barbie Oscars Snub

As HOLR previously reported, Ryan Gosling received an Oscar nomination in the supporting actor category for his role as Ken. The film’s director and star, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, did not receive nominations in their respective categories.

Gosling released a statement expressing his feelings towards the snub, “There is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie.”
