Barbie may have a lower likelihood of winning big at the Academy Awards, but reports of Ryan Gosling performing the song “I’m Just Ken” indicate that the movie still has a good chance of stealing the spotlight at this year’s ceremony.

Gosling is set to sing the keynote anthem from Greta Gerwig’s highly successful comedy at the event on March 10th, according to Variety. In a recent interview with the magazine, Gosling mentioned that he had not yet received an invitation to perform.

Gosling expressed caution about taking on the task, as he is likely to be surpassed by Robert Downey Jr. for the best supporting actor award.

“I am uncertain of how that could be implemented, but I am receptive to the idea.”

Mark Ronson, the co-composer of the song, expressed his desire for Ryan Gosling to perform at the Academy Awards during an interview with Variety at the Grammy awards.

The Guardian has not received confirmation from the Academy regarding the booking, but has reached out for a statement.

Both “I’m Just Ken” and “What Was I Made For?” have been nominated for the award for Best Song. Barbie has been nominated for a total of eight categories, but not for Best Actress for Margot Robbie or Best Director for Greta Gerwig.

On Monday, the initial group of individuals who will present at the Academy Awards was revealed. They include Mahershala Ali, Nicolas Cage, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brendan Fraser, Jessica Lange, Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong’o, Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ke Huy Quan, Sam Rockwell, Michelle Yeoh, and Zendaya.
