While Eilish’s song won two Grammys and is the clear favorite, “I’m Just Ken” — written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt — was one of the highlights of the summer blockbuster, and fans had clamored for Gosling to sing on Oscars night. In the film, the actor — wearing a white fur coat and bandana over his bleached blond hair — leads a horde of Kens in an epic song and dance number. “Doesn’t seem to matter what I do / I’m always number two,” he croons in the song. “I’m just Ken / Anywhere else, I’d be a 10 / Is it my destiny / To live and die a life of blond fragility?” The song charted on the Billboard Hot 100. — AFP
