After Barbie co-star Ryan Gosling showed disappointment over Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig being snubbed by Oscars, John Stamos chimed in to show his support for the two.

The Full House star posted a video accompanied by a bold caption that read, "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."

He then went on to take a dig at the 96th Annual Awards nominations, "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," Stamos, 60, concluded the captained with a call to action.

The video clip posted with the caption featured Stamos and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, imitating a scene from the 2023 hit film.

Not only did the If You Would Have Told Me author voice his rage over the situation, many friends and fellows took to social media to express themselves.

Gosling, who has been nominated at the Oscars for best supporting actor in Barbie, penned his gratitude for the honors followed by his disappointment over Gerwig and Robbie's snub.

Meanwhile, Author Shannon Watts sarcastically wrote on X, "Made a critically acclaimed, culturally profound, feminist movie about Barbie and the patriarchy that made a billion dollars at the box office. Oscar nomination goes to … Ken."

"If Ryan deserved a nom, then Margot certainly did, the fact she wouldn't have won isn't the point. It almost feels like the Academy deliberately played into the theme of the movie to get people talking," a fan noted.
