6 Movies and TV Shows Oscar Nominee Margot Robbie Almost Ended Up In

We’re so stoked that Margot Robbie is up for an Academy Award this year for her role in I, Tonya — her very first nomination! Considering she burst onto the Hollywood scene back in 2013 when she was cast in The Wolf on Wall Street, it seems like she’s had so much success so fast — but there’s a catch. Before she moved to the United States to pursue acting in Los Angeles, the Australian actress had actually been working for years back home. So we guess you could say this Oscar nomination has been a long time coming!

After so many seasons of working on Australian TV, the 27-year-old’s career has really taken off in America. Recently, her fans have seen her play everything from a deranged villain in Suicide Squad to the brave love interest in Tarzan, acting alongside really big names like Will Smith and Jared Leto in the process.

And as if that isn’t impressive enough, she’s had all kinds of other opportunities that didn’t pan out. But whether she was turned down from these roles or rejected them herself, we’re still super proud of this actress!
