The movie “Barbie” has been classified as an adapted screenplay by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, despite efforts by the filmmakers to have it considered as an original screenplay.

This decision may impact its Oscar nomination prospects, as it will face tougher competition in the Adapted category.

The debate over its classification has sparked discussion online, with some pointing out that the Academy’s classification is in line with past decisions. (Trending: Pro Sport Announces Shock Decision On Transgender Athletes)

“The Lego Movie” writer and producer Christopher Miller, said, “FUN FACT: In 2014, the Academy deemed THE LEGO MOVIE an adapted screenplay even though we had already won the National Board of Review Best Original Screenplay award — because it was based on LEGO bricks and had a LEGO version of Batman as a character.”

“I think this is the right move. not like it’s an insult to be nominated for original or adapted. At the end of the day, barbie is a character / product already invented by Ruth Handler. I think that’s basis enough for adapted,” commented a social media influencer.

Despite being designated as adapted for the Oscars, “Barbie” has been considered an original work by the Writers Guild of America and will compete in that category for the upcoming WGA Awards.

The movie’s official Academy Award nominations for all categories will be announced on January 23.
