In 2014, Margot founded her own production company, LuckyChap Entertainment.

In 2015, Margot starred opposite Will Smith in the romantic comedy-drama film Focus. She plays an inexperienced grifter learning the craft from Smith’s character. Despite mixed reviews, Margot’s performance was praised with Peter Travers of Rolling Stone writing “Robbie is a wow and then some. The Aussie actress who made us sit up and take notice as Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in The Wolf of Wall Street shows a comic flair backed up with beauty and steel. Even when Focus fumbles, Robbie deals a winning hand.” The industry was literally taking notice and Margot received a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award. Next, Margot played the leading role of Ann Burden in the film adaptation of Z for Zachariah with Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film premiered on 24 January 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival and has since received positive reviews since its theatrical release.

She next portrayed the American figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, written by Steven Rogers and 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 playing a real-life athlete.

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”. Margot was nominated for both a BAFTA and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress. In February this year, Margot was also announced as an ambassador for the luxury fashion brand Chanel and later she became the face of the company’s fragrance Chanel Gabrielle Chanel Essence.
