If you're a fan of late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, you'll be happy to know that Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars this year.

Performers: Ryan Gosling will perform "I'm Just Ken" live and more

News of the first performer taking the stage at the ceremony is in! And that would be Ryan Gosling singing "I'm Just Ken" from the Barbie movie live! The song has also been nominated in the Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song) category. There were rumors going around for months on whether this was going to happen, and now it's confirmed.

Plus in more good news, Billie Eilish will also take the stage to serenade us with "What Was I Made For?" from the movie's soundtrack. We shared the list of performers so far below:

  • “The Fire Inside” from “Flamin’ Hot” – Performed by Becky G
  • “I’m Just Ken” from “Barbie” – Performed by Ryan Gosling and Mark Ronson
  • “It Never Went Away” from “American Symphony” – Performed by Jon Batiste
  • “Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)” from “Killers of the Flower Moon” – Performed by Scott George and the Osage Singers
  • “What Was I Made For?” from “Barbie” – Performed by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell

Oscars 2024 nominees

There's a total of 23 categories at the 2024 Oscars, including Best Actor, Best Actress, and of course Best Picture. In a disappointing turn of events, Barbie actress Margot Robbie has been snubbed a Best Actress nomination at the Academy Awards. Honestly, I don't know what's going on this awards season. The star was brilliant, funny, and nailed that role. She's definitely not getting the recognition she deserves. And neither is Barbie director Greta Gerwig, who didn't get a nomination for Best Director. We shared the full list of nominees who could be taking home an Oscar statuette below:
