Ryan Gosling ‘set to perform’ I’m Just Ken at Oscars

Ryan Gosling is “set to perform” I’m Just Ken at the 2024 Oscars.

The song is notably from the box-office smash hit film, Barbie, in which Ryan played Ken alongside Margot Robbie who played the film’s title character.

Whether the actor would sing the song at the 96th Annual Academy Awards ceremony has been the topic of discussion, since the song took home the award for Best Song at the Critics Choice Awards.

Sources have told Variety that the actor is prepping to take to the Oscars stage.

The highly-anticipated awards show will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 10.

Back at the beginning of this month, Ryan told the publication that the Academy hadn’t yet asked him to perform: “It might be too much of a risk to have me do it.”

He added: “I don’t know how that would work. But I’m open to it.”

The 43-year-old is up for Best Supporting Actor, while the song written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt is up for Best Original Song.

This is one of two original songs up for an Academy Award at the Oscars, alongside Billie Eilish’s, What Was I Made For?

Songwriter Mark also told Variety at the Grammys that it was his dream for Ryan to perform at the Academy Awards.

When asked if he’d possibly sub in another singer should Ken himself not want to perform he said: “No. I think if Ryan doesn’t do it then we’re not doing it.”

Barbie received eight nominations for this year’s Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor for Ryan Gosling, Best Supporting Actress for America Ferrera and Best Adapted Screenplay for Greta and her partner Noah Baumbach.

Barbie went on to become the highest-grossing film ever from a female filmmaker at the domestic box office, as well as the top-earning worldwide film of 2023, with nearly $1.5 billion to date.
