The 96th Academy Awards will take place on March 10 at 7 pm ET and will broadcast from the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, with host Jimmy Kimmel.

Interested candidates must submit their Applications before March 3. Applicants must be US residents and over 18 years of age.

When determining the best films and performances, candidates will need to follow scoring criteria based on five factors: Eemotional resonance, entertainment impact, memorability meter, creativity quotient and social buzz probability.

This comes after DailyMail.com confirmed that Ryan Gosling will take to the stage to perform Barbie’s nominated hit song at the awards show next month.

Inside sources confirm that the Canadian-born actor, 43, who is also nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Ken in the summer blockbuster, will sing ‘I’m Just Ken’ at the star-studded ceremony which will be held in Los Angeles in March. 10.

The live performance idea has been the subject of speculation since Gosling and the hit were announced among this year’s Oscar nominations last month, while the film’s female lead, Margot Robbie, and director Greta Gerwig were snubbed

And while it’s customary for a Best Original Song nominee to perform during the awards show, the prospect of Gosling’s special performance was overshadowed by controversy.

Barbie received a total of eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress for America Ferrera, and Best Original Song for Ken’s existential theme, I’m Just Ken.

The Academy’s controversial decision sparked a wider debate about sexism in the industry among actors and fans on social media, and even saw Gosling issue an extraordinary statement in support of his female colleagues.

Oppenheimer dominated the Academy Awards nominations, earning 13 nods, including best picture and best star for Cillian Murphy.

The impressive total, which also includes best actor and supporting actress for Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt, as well as best director for Christopher Nolan, is just one nomination away from the all-time record set by Titanic in 1998.

Barbie star Margot Robbie was not nominated for best actress and Greta Gerwig was not nominated for best director.

Another surprise was that America Ferrara was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in Barbie, with pundits saying her character’s passionate speech about feminism had sealed the deal.

Barbie’s other nominations include best picture, best supporting actor for Ryan Gosling and two nominations for best song, including Gosling’s famous ‘I’m Just Ken.’

The second film with the most nominations was Poor Things, a graphic art film starring Emma Stone that captivated critics but so far failed to light up the box office.

Stone plays a sex-crazed young woman, and her performance wowed critics. She previously won best actress in 2017 for her performance in La La Land.

For the award for best leading actor, Bradley Cooper and Cillian Murphy will compete for the award. Colman Domingo, Paul Giamatti and Jeffrey Wright also received nominations.

Leonardo DiCaprio was not recognized for his performance in Killers Of The Flower Moon.

Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things took home 11 Oscar nominations and Killers of the Flower Moon scored 10.

Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer were nominated for best direction, snubbing Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.
