‘Barbie’ actor Ryan Gosling is revealing if he would be open to performing the hit song, ‘I’m Just Ken’, at the upcoming Academy Awards.
As you know, the 43-year-old was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Ken in the hit film, so why not have a full-on performance of the fan-favorite ballad at the biggest night for movies?
While the Academy has not yet commented on whether we will see an ‘I’m Just Ken’ performance, the actor has revealed that if it were up to him, it would happen.
Ryan Gosling Speaks On Upcoming Oscars
Bring on the Ken-ergy because if the Academy is open to the idea, Ryan Gosling told E! News he would definitely perform his hit ‘Barbie’ song live at the big event.
Ever since its debut, the ballad has been extremely popular amongst fans, even entering the Billboard Hot 100. While nothing has been confirmed, if the act does happen, we know Gosling will lay everything out on the stage and wow fans with an over-the-top performance, because, well, he’s just Ken.
‘Barbie’ has been receiving a lot of attention as of late due to the snub Margot Robbie received for not being nominated for Best Actress.
While Gosling is “extremely honored to be nominated” for the Best Supporting Actor category, he spoke on the snub, saying there is “no Ken without Barbie. And there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, the two people most responsible for this history-making, globally celebrated film.”
Greta Gerwig was also snubbed in the Best Director category. “To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement,” Gosling said of the two women.
He added, “No recognition would be possible for anyone on the film without their talent, grit, and genius. To say that I’m disappointed that they are not nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement.”
Margot Robbie On ‘Barbie’ Oscar’s Snub
Margot Robbie recently addressed her Oscars snub, revealing that “There’s no way to feel sad when you know you’re this blessed.” She then added that she is “beyond ecstatic that we’ve got eight Academy Award nominations — it’s so wild.”
“Obviously I think Greta should be nominated as a director because what she did is a once-in-a-career, once-in-a-lifetime thing, what she pulled off, it really is. But it’s been an incredible year for all the films,” she added.
The movie made more than $1 billion at the box office and is “bigger than us” and “bigger than our industry,” according to Robbie. ‘Barbie’ has done “way more than we ever dreamed it would, and that is truly the biggest reward that could come out of all of this,” the actress continued.
The following actresses were nominated for Best Actress at the 2023 Oscars:
- Annette Bening for ‘Nyad’
- Lily Gladstone for ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’
- Sandra Hüller for ‘Anatomy of a Fall’
- Carey Mulligan for ‘Maestro’
- Emma Stone for ‘Poor Things’
In total, ‘Barbie’ received eight nominations. The Oscars will air on Sunday, March 10, 2024.
