Oscar buzz for Margot Robbie following trailer for new movie

Margot Robbie’s stock has rocketed since she broke onto the scene in 2013 for her role in The Wolf of Wall Street. Her latest movie sees her skating on thin ice in I, Tonya, a dark comedy based around the true story of the Tonya Harding Olympic scandal.

Robbie’s performance has already sparked hysteria as we step ever closer to award season and the movie has earned rave reviews since its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The movie follows Harding (Robbie) and her skating story as she rises through the US figure skating ranks, right up until the 1994 Winter Olympics when her future is put into jeopardy by her ex-husband, Jeff Gilloly (Sebastian Stan).

The story is follows the brutal and sometimes unbelievable events as Gilloly attempts to sabotage Harding’s rival skater, Nancy Kerrigan.

I, Tonya hits UK cinemas early next year.
