Gal Gadot Not Upset By ‘Wonder Woman’s Oscar Snub
Gal Gadot isn’t fazed by Wonder Woman’s lack of an Oscar nomination.
The 32-year-old actress says that the movie’s team did not set out to win any awards.
“I was very moved and touched by the people who were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn’t nominated, but we certainly never did the movie for that,” Gadot said to ET. “I think that you can’t have it all. We’ve done this movie and it was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we’re going to have another movie, so who knows? Maybe the next one!”
While Gadot didn’t seem too upset with the Oscars snub, others took to Twitter to express their disappointment.
“Bummed by the complete lack of nods for #WonderWoman. A landmark in its genre, a comic-book movie that represented a moment. As much a cultural phenomenon/talking-point as any film this year,” BBC writer Christian Blauvelt tweeted.

Film critic and producer Scott Mantz also chimed in, tweeting, “RETWEET if you’re PISSED that #WonderWoman didn’t get ANY Oscar nominations!! WTF??”

Though the Oscars didn’t recognize Gadot’s film, Wonder Woman took home several other awards, including the USA AFI Awards’ Movie of the Year and the Teen Choice Awards for Choice Action Movie, Choice Action Movie Actor, which went to Chris Pine, and Choice Action Movie Actress, which went to Gadot.
