Ryan On Bringing Ken to the Oscars: “It’s All I’m Going To Think About”

 In an interview with W Magazine for its annual Best Performances issue, Gosling sat down with his Barbie co-star Margot Robbie to talk about the film’s success.

So far, Barbie has nabbed a slew of awards: Golden Globes. BAFTAs. You name it.

But the big question is, if nominated, will Gosling sing “I’m Just Ken” at the Oscars?

“I wasn’t thinking about it until now,” he admitted to W, “and now it’s all I’m going to think about!”

It’s all any of us are thinking about! With the thought firmly planted in his mind, Gosling spiraled out from there, questioning all the logistics of his performance.

“Do you get paid to sing at the Oscars?” he asked Robbie. “Do you have to drive yourself? What kind of scratch is involved? They pick you up at least, right?”

But he didn’t stop there!

When asked about his go-to karaoke song, Gosling teased the much anticipate performance again, quipping: “I don’t have one. I only sing at the Oscars … Oh no, wait, I don’t.”

Oscar nominations won’t be revealed officially until January 23rd. However, Barbie has already led the pack for every major film award show of 2024 thus far. 

Barbie lead with 18 total nods for the 2024 Critics Choice Awards, and then snagged a win for the viral song! It actually beat out two other songs on the soundtrack: “What Was I Made For” by Billie Eilish, as well as Dua Lipa’s Barbie song “Dance the Night.”

So, we’re on a roll! 

The film also snagged nine nominations for the Golden Globes and  15 for the BAFTA Film Awards

And the viral smash song, “I’m Just Ken” is helping the nomination numbers climb. It’s received a nod from this year’s Golden Globes and a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Sounds like Ken is a big ten!
