Oscars 2024: Who is performing at the Academy Awards?

It’s become a time-honored tradition at the Academy Awards for the tunes nominated for Best Original Song to be performed onstage at the Oscars, often by the very artists who provided their vocals for the film in question. The 96th annual Academy Awards will be no exception, and one of the most anticipated parts of this year’s show will be the live performances.

While we can’t predict the exact times that the songs will be performed, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the full lineup of artists who will take the stage this Sunday, March 10, at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California.

Who is performing at the 2024 Oscars?

As you may have gathered from the image above, Best Supporting Actor nominee Ryan Gosling will sing his song, I’m Just Ken, from Barbie. For that performance, Gosling will be accompanied by the song’s co-writer, Mark Ronson, and Andrew Wyatt.

Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas O’Connell, will also represent Barbie when they perform their song What Was I Made For? Becky G will take the stage for The Fire Inside, from Flamin’ Hot. Killers of the Flower Moon‘s Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People) will be performed by Scott George and the Osage Singers. Jon Batiste will also appear and sing his song It Never Went Away from American Symphony.

Who will be the presenters at the Oscars?

Unless an Oscar winner for Best Actor gets out of their seat and slaps a presenter (as Will Smith did to Chris Rock in 2022), they tend to be invited back the following year to present the award for Best Actress. Similarly, the Best Actress winner from the previous year presents the following year’s Best Actor award. The same is true for the Best Supporting Actress and Actor winners. At this year’s Oscars, 2023’s winners — Brendan Fraser, Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis — will fill those roles.

The rest of this year’s presenters include a Scarface reunion of Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer, as well as Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Hemsworth, Nicolas Cage, Michael Keaton, Lupita Nyong’o, Mahershala Ali, Matthew McConaughey, Zendaya, Dwayne Johnson, Jessica Lange, Kate McKinnon, Regina King, Octavia Spencer, Sam Rockwell, John Mulaney, Ramy Youssef, Rita Moreno, Catherine O’Hara, and Bad Bunny.

What time will the Oscars be held?

This year’s ceremony is starting an hour earlier than normal at 4 pm PT/7 pm ET on Sunday, March 10. The 96th Academy Awards will be broadcast on ABC and streamed through the ABC app or via cable and live-service providers.

Everything coming to Netflix in April 2024
Two boys sit in an office in Dead Boy Detectives.

March is almost over, and while it didn't win a lot of Oscars this year, Netflix is still a winner in terms of popularity. That's primarily due to its diverse slate of hits and critically acclaimed movies and shows, which range from The Gentlemen, Guy Ritchie's action-comedy series, to Damsel, a fantasy movie starring Millie Bobby Brown.

Netflix plans to maintain its dominance with its April programming slate, the best yet this year. The month starts with a bang with the premiere of Ripley, a new limited series that adapts the popular novel and 1999 movie The Talented Mr. Ripley, and the debut of Scoop, a drama based on the real-life scandal involving Prince Andrew's controversial interview with the BBC. The month ends with the highly anticipated adaptation of the popular Neil Gaiman comic book series Dead Boy Detectives and the second part of Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon films. Check the list below for everything coming to Netflix in April 2024.

In March, movies came back in a big way. Dune: Part Two started things off, and Kung Fu Panda 4, the Ghostbusters sequel, Love Lies Bleeding, and Late Night with the Devil all packed audiences in theaters or satisfied critics with their twisted takes on the horror, sci-fi, and crime genres.

April is going to be a bit slower in comparison, but if you look closely, there are some buried treasures lurking beneath the popcorn flicks. The month will offer not one, but two bloody revenge flicks, a controversial action movie that actually has a brain, and a spicy sports drama starring one of the most glamourous movie stars living today. That's not a bad lineup, so make sure to seek these movies out before the summer movie season pushes them out of the multiplex.
