Margot attended the Film Independent Spirit Awards. She was also a presenter with Timothée Chalamet.
Unfortunatly again Margot lost out on the Lead Female award to Frances McDormand. However good news for Allison Janney who won another award for her best supporting female role. And Tatiana S. Riegel won for best editing. Lets hope Margot takes it where it counts, at the Oscars!
One of Australia’s most talented exports, Margot Robbie, is in and out of her comfort zone here. Case in point: snacks.
Snacking is everyone’s favourite way to pass time. Crisps, chocolate bars, the odd apple when you’ve indulged in takeaways for three nights straight and need to feel a tad more “healthy”…
But here, the I, Tonya star puts her palette to the test by tasting classic British and American snacks, before giving her verdict on which is best.
From Space Invaders vs Shapes, Marmite vs Vegemite, Irn Bru vs Solo, Penguins vs TimTams, John Smiths vs Four-X; the competition was heated. But which snacks came out on top? The UK’s or Down Under’s?
Side-by-side snack wars, we also got to grips with Margot’s other talents – especially her ice skating skills. She’s not a complete amateur, but she’s not olympic level. We think that’s a great honest combo.
When asked whether she’d be a keen olympian: “I’d love to be a pole vaulter, because that’s the kind of sport that defies physics, gravity, and logic. Just looks fun.” to rate her own ice skating skills.”
And of course we had to pose the questions on everyone’s minds, like would she ever be up for a James Bond film and her worst chat up line.
Margot, who rose to fame and acclaim with The Wolf Of Wall Street and Suicide Squad, also tackled LADS On Film with a focus on her latest role.
Touching on everything from the real life Tonya Harding to hilarious set stories and The Oscars, this short and sweet Q&A further cements Margot’s legendary status in the industry.

Unfortunatly Margot didnt win the award for leading actress with Frances McDormand again taking the award. However Allison was able to win the Supporting actress award for her portrayal of Tonya Hardings mother in the film. Margot did present an award during the show.
Margot Robbie has had a lot of memorable moments in the past twelve months, due in large part to her involvement in I, Tonya, the dark comedy she produced and starred in about disgraced former figure skating champ, Tonya Harding.
Through her work on the film, for which she received her first-ever Oscar nomination, Robbie has become friendly with Harding and throughout the film’s run has shared in several very happy moments with the former figure skater. According to Robbie, the most memorable of them all was a chance meeting she saw between Harding and cult movie icon Tommy Wiseau.
“The craziest thing I’ve witnessed was watching Tonya Harding meeting Tommy Wiseau from The Room,” Robbie tells PEOPLE. “Seeing that collision of worlds was like mind boggling, I was like ‘Oh wow, only in Hollywood.’”
Although the actress has now attended multiple awards shows, the one thing she is still trying to master is having the perfect expression ready for when TV cameras pan to her during live broadcasts.
“It’s so awkward when the camera pans to you during an awards show,” she says. “You’re trying to have the appropriate level of excitement on your face without looking manic on screen. What’s going through my head at the time? I’m probably just wondering when the next meal is going to be served, if they’re going to serve food, most of the time they don’t.”
