Ryan Gosling takes advantage of the opportunity to perform at the Oscars

However, “Barbie” star and co-producer Margot Robbie says he never hesitated to agree to perform. In fact, she says she didn't have to pressure him “at all.”

“He jumped into this,” Robbie told me at Saturday night's Chanel and Charles Finch party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “He's going to crush it. I'm so excited. I think it's going to be the highlight of the whole night. I think a lot of people are going to tune into this particular performance.”

in diverse In an early February cover story, Gosling insisted that the Academy had not yet asked him to perform. “It would have been a big risk to do that,” said Gosling, who is nominated for an Oscar for his role as Kane. “I don't know how that would work. But I'm open to it.”

said Mark Ronson, who wrote the song with Andrew Wyatt diverse At the Grammy Awards, his dream was for Gosling to perform at the Oscars.

When asked if he might be replaced by another singer if Gosling didn't want to perform “I'm Only Kane” live during the Oscars, Ronson said: “No. I think if Ryan doesn't do it then we won't do it.”

“I'm Just Ken” is one of two “Barbie” tracks that received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The other is “What were you created for?” Written by Billie Eilish and Finneas.
