Career

2017–present: Established actress

In 2017, Robbie starred alongside Domhnall Gleeson in Goodbye Christopher Robin as Daphne de Sélincourt, wife of author A. A. Milne. She next portrayed American figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, directed by Craig Gillespie. Reviewing the film for The Boston Globe, Ty Burr wrote, "Robbie is taller, bigger than the tiny, fierce Harding, but she gets the athlete's forward drive, and the anger that seemed to fuel the dynamo, and when life hands Tonya lemons, Robbie sets her jaw and bears down."

For her portrayal of Harding, Robbie was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical and the Academy Award for Best Actress. She was the first actress nominated for an Academy Award for portraying a real-life Olympic athlete. That year Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and Forbes featured her on its 30 Under 30 list.

In 2018, Robbie voiced the character of Flopsy Rabbit in the animated/live-action film Peter Rabbit, an adaptation of the Beatrix Potter book series. She then starred in Vaughn Stein's thriller film Terminal as Annie. She then made a cameo appearance as Audrey in Slaughterhouse Rulez, and portrayed Queen Elizabeth I in Mary Queen of Scots, opposite Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart.

David Sims of The Atlantic dismissed the latter film as a "tawdry soap opera" but wrote that "with her little screen time, [Robbie] still manages to convey a real sense of resentment over Mary's status as a more traditional queen." She received BAFTA and Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations for Best Supporting Actress.

Robbie began 2019 by starring as a femme fatale in Dreamland, a period crime thriller set during the 1930s Dust Bowl, which she also produced. She next agreed to portray actress Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's comedy-drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, due to her desire to work with Tarantino.

In preparation, she read the autobiography Roman by Polanski, by Roman Polanski, who was married to Tate. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian stated that despite a lack of female roles in the film, "Robbie gives a sympathetic portrayal of Tate," while Robbie Collin of The Telegraph found a sequence in which Tate watches her own performance in a cinema to be the film's "most delightful" scene. She also served as an executive producer on the Hulu comedy series Dollface.

That year, Forbes ranked her as the eighth highest-paid actress in the world, with an annual income of US$23.5 million, and The Hollywood Reporter listed her among the 100 most powerful people in entertainment.

Robbie played Kayla Pospisil, a composite character based on several Fox News employees, in the drama Bombshell (2019), which centres on the stories of various female personnel at the news network and their reports of sexual harassment by the network's chairman Roger Ailes. In preparation, she created a fake Twitter account to follow young conservative women, and watched videos of Katherine Harris, on whom she based her character's accent.

Taking particular note of an "excruciating scene" in which Pospisil is sexually harassed, Owen Gleiberman of Variety credited Robbie for "let[ting] us feel the pressure-cooker agony of what's going on inside her [character]." Similarly, Manohla Dargis of The New York Times stated that "it is Robbie — with her panicked, darting eyes and tensely resistant, then capitulating physicality — who conveys the horror of sexual harassment, a degradation that seeps into body and soul."

She received two BAFTA nominations for her performances in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Bombshell, and for the latter, she was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

Robbie began the new decade by producing the drama thriller film Promising Young Woman (2020), directed by Emerald Fennell and starring Carey Mulligan. The film received critical acclaim and was nominated for Best Picture at the 93rd Academy Awards After having pitched the idea of a Harley Quinn film featuring the Birds of Prey team to Warner Bros. in 2015, she spent three years developing the project under her production company. The film, titled Birds of Prey and directed by Cathy Yan, was released in 2020 to critical praise. Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly praised Robbie for playing Quinn with a "giddy mix of mad-dog ruthlessness and girlish glee."
