A local police force in Australia joked that it was “investigating” the Academy after Margot Robbie’s Best Actress nomination for the 2024 Academy Awards was “stolen”.

A number of prominent figures, including former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Ryan Gosling, have come out in support of Robbie and director Greta Gerwig after they failed to secure individual nominations for Barbie at the 96th Academy Awards.

Robbie, who hails from Queensland, Australia, is the lead actress and producer of the film, which earned a total of 8 nominations in other categories and grossed more than $1 billion worldwide at the box office.

On Tuesday, January 23, after the nominations were announced, Victoria Police got involved, writing on Facebook.

“Police are investigating after a former resident of Ramsay Street allegedly had her Oscar nomination for Best Actress stolen,” police wrote, referring to the 33-year-old actress’ former role in the Australian soap opera Neighbours.

“We would like to take this opportunity to remind all current residents of Ramsay Street and the rest of Victoria to consider reporting any non-emergency crime, such as theft, via our online reporting tool,” police added in the post.

A regular on the long-running series, which ran from 2008 to 2011, Robbie then landed his breakout role, starring opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 crime comedy The Wolf of Wall Street.

Robbie was later nominated for two acting Oscars for her lead role in the 2017 sports biopic I, Tonya and her supporting role in the 2019 comedy thriller Scandal (Bombshell).
