On Sunday 10 March the 96th edition of the Academy Awards will take place. This year, ‘Oppenheimer’ leads with the most nominations, totaling 13. On the other hand, ‘Poor Things’ follows closely as the second film with the most nominations, being included in 11 categories.

Additionally, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ appears in 10 categories, and ‘Barbie,’ the highest-grossing film of last year, has been nominated eight times, including two mentions in the Best Original Song category: ‘I’m Just Ken’ and ‘What Was I Made For?’

As is customary in the ceremony, it is expected that some of the recognized songs will be performed, and according to reports, Ryan Gosling is preparing to take the stage to present ‘I’m Just Ken’.

Ryan Gosling is Kenough for the Oscars

After months of speculation, Gosling will indeed perform ‘I’m Just Ken’ live at the Oscars, according to various reports. In a front-page article in Variety in early February, Gosling stated that the Academy had not yet asked him to perform. “Perhaps it’s too risky for me to do it,” the Best Supporting Actor nominee said. “I’m not sure how that would work. But I’m open to it,” he added.

Mark Ronson, the composer of the song alongside Andrew Wyatt, told Variety at the Grammys that his dream was for Gosling to perform at the Academy Awards and that they wouldn’t substitute him with someone else. “I think if Ryan doesn’t do it, then we won’t do it.” It now appears it’s on!

What are the songs nominated at the 2024 Oscars?

‘I’m Just Ken’ is one of the two songs from ‘Barbie’ that received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. The other is ‘What Was I Made For?’ by Billie Eilish and Finneas, which won the Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media, surpassing ‘I’m Just Ken’ and ‘Dance the Night’ by Dua Lipa.

Additionally, ‘The Fire Inside’ from the film ‘Flaming Hot,’ composed by Diane Warren; ‘It Never Went Away’ from the movie ‘American Symphony,’ composed by Jon Batiste and Dan Wilson; as well as ‘Wahzhazhe, A Song For My People’ from ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ composed by Scott George, are recognized.

The 96th edition of the Oscars will be broadcast live on ABC on Sunday 10 March, from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. This year, the ceremony will start at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT and will conclude around three and a half hours later with Jimmy Kimmel being our host once again.
