“I’m Just Ken”: Ryan Gosling will perform his song in Barbie at the Oscars

Eventually, Ken will sing. After a few weeks of speculation following the controversies surrounding the Oscar nominations for the film Barbie, it was decided that Ryan Gosling would perform "I'm Just Ken", one of the blockbuster songs, during the ceremony, reveals the DailyMail.

I’m Just Ken was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song. This nomination comes in addition to the seven others for the film, which concern Ryan Gosling for the Oscar for best supporting actor, America Ferrara for the Oscar for best supporting actress, Jacqueline Durran for the Oscar for best costumes, the songs “I'm Just Ken” and “What Was I Made For” for the Oscar for Best Original Song, the Oscar for Best Design, the Oscar for Best Picture and, finally, the Oscar for best adapted screenplay. A host of potential rewards which would complete the crowning of one of the greatest cinematic successes of the year 2023.

Released in July, Barbie made a remarkable debut at the global box office, recalls the specialist site cinemablend.com, taking in $1.45 billion, including $636 million during its release in the United States. But despite this success, a shadow alters this idyllic picture. When the nominations were revealed, the public saw that Greta Gerwig, the film's director, had been snubbed by the Oscar for best director and Margot Robbie forgotten by the Oscar for best actress.

Ryan Gosling reacted bluntly in a statement where he expressed both his joy at being nominated and his disappointment at the absence of his co-star and the director from the list: “I am extremely honored to be nominated by my colleagues alongside such remarkable artists (...) But there is no Ken without Barbie, and there is no Barbie movie without Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie (...) Without their talent, their determination and their genius, no recognition would be possible for the actors of the film. To say I'm disappointed that they weren't nominated in their respective categories would be an understatement. (...) Their work must be recognized, just like that of the other very deserving nominees,” wrote the 43-year-old actor.

For a few weeks, controversy left Ryan Gosling's musical performance during the Oscars ceremony in limbo. In an article published by Variety in early February, the actor insisted that the Academy had not yet asked him to perform on stage: "It might be too risky to ask me to do it," he said. he supposed. I don't know how it's going to happen. But I’m open to the idea.”

On February 23, the Academy made its decision public: fans of the film will have the joy of hearing the Canadian actor sing the song on March 10 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. The 96th Oscars ceremony will be broadcast on ABC and will be broadcast from 2 a.m., live and exclusively, on CANAL. Jimmy Kimmel will once again be the host.
