Ryan Gosling has jokingly teased an I'm Just Ken Oscars performance.

During a new interview with W Magazine, the Canadian star discussed whether or not he will be performing the hit song from the Barbie film at this year's Academy Awards ceremony.

"Well, I haven't been invited," he coyly responded when asked about the potential performance.

"And I wasn't thinking about it until now, and now it's all I'm going to think about," Ryan, 43, humorously continued. "Do you get paid to sing at the Oscars? Do you have to drive yourself? What kind of scratch is involved? They pick you up at least, right?"

The actor, who played Ken in the smash hit film, has achieved over 70 million streams on Spotify, a Grammy nomination and a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with the song, written and produced by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt.

The Power Ballad is one of three original songs from the Barbie movie that have made it onto the shortlist to win Best Original Song at the Oscars. The song is joined by Billie Eilish's What Was I Made For and Dua Lipa's Dance the Night. However, according to the official Oscars rules, only two songs from one movie can be nominated for Best Original Song. All three tracks received Golden Globe nominations in December.

The 96th annual Academy Awards will be held in March with the nominees being announced later this month.
