The AACTA Awards ceremony, which is called Australia's Oscars, took place in Gold Coast, on the east coast of Australia. One of her triumphs was Margot Robbie, who was awarded several awards, including the “Innovator of the Year” award.
The fact that neither Margot nor the director of the film “Barbie” Greta Gerwig received nominations for the main American Oscar resulted in a heated debate on the Internet. Given the theme of “Barbie” and the influence of the film on popular culture in 2024, many considered this outcome to be unfair, and the Australian Academy of Film and Television Arts apparently decided to correct the misunderstanding.
To present Robbie with the “Innovator of the Year” award, her compatriot Cate Blanchett took the stage at the House of Arts in the guise of “Middle-Aged Barbie.” Margot thanked the Academy for the honor bestowed upon her. “Australia has always been my base and to receive this high level of recognition here is incredibly special,” she said.
By the way, this time Margot did not wear pink on the red carpet. She wore a vintage bridal dress from Vivienne Westwood's 1998 spring/summer collection. And Cate Blanchett, before dressing up as Barbie, posed for photographers in a jumpsuit with an asymmetrical Armani Privé top.
Also present at the event were Elsa Pataky, Rebel Wilson and other stars. Her husband Tom Ackerley came to support Margot."
