Coming to the year 2022, Margot Robbie’s star has been on the rise with an increase in impressive performances in films such as I, Tonya SY Once upon a time in Hollywoodnot to mention Suicide Squad movie and its own Harley Quinn spinoff sequel A bird of prey (which he also produced). Many actors in this position may consider taking paid time off to recuperate and regroup, especially with the Covid protocols that are so prominent in filmmaking today. Not Margot Robbie. He has been involved in recurring projects—Amsterdam SY Babylon—and still had time to produce more shows and movies with his production company, LuckyChap Entertainment.
As an actor and producer with a willingness to nurture emerging and established talent, Robbie’s success cannot be contained in one year. We may indeed be in the age of Margot Robbie, as we join actresses Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Elizabeth Banks, and others who have stepped back behind the scenes to control their own narratives. What distinguishes Robbie is his success in projects and with his colleagues, the qualities that have received nominations and awards for his work both in front of and behind the camera.
Back in time
If you’re confused by the similarities between Robbie’s two projects this year—Amsterdam SY Babylon— released just a few months ago, you’re probably not alone. Although they are very different (actually, really different) they share some of the same jazz age aesthetics. You may also find similar words and phrases, such as “messy” and “starry.” And you’ll often see Robbie’s performance singled out as the best part of both projects. She has already received a Golden Globe nomination for her role as the famous starlet Nellie LaRoy in the film. Babylonand hopefully it will arrive in time for the Oscars (which is his third nomination) as well.
Robbie tends to be drawn to seasonal roles, especially those that allow him to disappear into a character in another time and place. Even when she plays Harley Quinn, she’s so immersive that it’s hard to see her as anything but that character. His other notable appearance this year was another trip back in time, in a way. She returns to her roots with a cameo in the latest episode of the long-running Australian soap opera the neighborswhere she started playing Donna Freeman from 2008 to 2011.

Robbie’s career in business grew wider and wider. Just this year, he produced two shows for Hulu — eight episodes each Mikebased on the life of Mike Tyson, and the second season of Dollface, starring Kat Dennings. He is also planning several projects for next year.
