She’s just made history as the first woman nominated twice for the same BAFTA.
And while haters were quick to attack Margot Robbie’s double-nod, only jokers would expect her to apologise.
The Aussie Harley Quinn star is caught up in the #BAFTAssowhite race row, with some critics saying it was unfair for her to have two nominations in the Best Supporting Actress Category, when no women of colour – such as Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers or Lupita Nyong’o for Us – had been recognised.
Although Margot, 29, has no control over what nominations she receives, she’s unlikely to say sorry for her success.
In a previously unpublished interview just before the nominations, Margot hit out at the industry for attacking “ambitious” women.
She said: “I feel like that is one of those things where it is such a double standard. Men can be ambitious and be praised for it while women can be ambitious and considered a b*tch.”
Of her Bombshell co-stars Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron, she added: “Nicole, Charlize and I are all ambitious women. We produce, we all act, we all have… done things in our lives. We shouldn’t be sorry for that, and no one else should be sorry if they want something.”
Since the race row surrounding the BAFTAs emerged, the Chairman of the Film Committee Marc Samuelson has said: “It’s infuriating. We can’t make the industry do something, all we can do is encourage and push.”
Meanwhile director Andrew Onwubolu, known for his London gang flick Blue Story , scolded: “The only time black faces are seen in the BAFTAs is in the rising star category.
“It’s meant to be an award for British films, but all they ever seem to do is follow what they think will do well at the Oscars.”
He added that Blue Story “did enough to at least to be nominated.”
