John Stamos recreates ‘Barbie’ scene with wife Caitlin McHugh, slams Oscars snub: ‘Twist of irony’

by UNN Feed

John Stamos believes it’s “a twist of irony” that the leading ladies of “Barbie” were snubbed from this year’s Oscars nominees list.

Hollywood was stunned Tuesday as “Barbie” creator Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie didn’t receive nods from the Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Actress, respectively, while Ryan Gosling earned one for his role as beach-dwelling Ken.

Just hours after, the “Full House” alum took to social media to recreate a scene from the billion-dollar grossing film, released in July.

“This one goes out to Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie who crafted a film that was both a critical success and a cultural phenomenon, delving into feminist themes through the lens of Barbie and challenging patriarchal norms,” Stamos, 60, captioned the Instagram video.

“This movie not only resonated deeply but also grossed OVER a billion dollars. Yet, in a twist of irony, both women were snubbed by the Academy. Everyone go re-watch Barbie tonight.”

In the clip, the actor took on Gosling’s Ken while his wife, Caitlin McHugh, played Barbie, as the pair recreated a scene in which Ken continuously asked Barbie how to kill his boredom during their trip to the real world.

In the pair’s video, Stamos can be seen lounging in their backyard, while the “Vampire Diaries” alum does some gardening.

The Oscars snub has prompted other stars from the film to speak out.

America Ferrera, who earned herself a Best Supporting Actress nomination for the blockbuster film, told Variety of her female colleagues, “I was incredibly disappointed that they weren’t nominated.”

“Greta has done just about everything that a director could do to deserve it,” Ferrera said Tuesday.
