Comedian Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2024 Oscars, his fourth time hosting the show. A fan favorite, Kimmel kept the show moving and brought the house down with his opening monologue.

Who performed at the Oscars?

Performers for the 2024 Academy Awards included: Jon Batiste performing "It Never Went Away" from "American Symphony," Becky G performing "The Fire Inside" from "Flamin' Hot," Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell performing "What Was I Made For?" from "Barbie" and Scott George and the Osage Singers performing "Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)" from "Killers of the Flower Moon."

Arguably the highlight of the night's musical performances was "Barbie" star Ryan Gosling's rousing performance of "I'm Just Ken" from "Barbie."

Who were the 2024 Oscar nominees?

Though "Barbie" star Margot Robbie wasn't nominated for her starring role in the film, nor was director Greta Gerwig nominated for best director, Ryan Gosling was nominated for best-supporting actor for his role as Ken. Bradley Cooper was nominated for his portrayal of Leonard Bernstein in "Maestro", while co-star Carey Mulligan was nominated in the best actress category for the film as well. Martin Scorsese scored a best director nomination for "Killers of the Flower Moon", and star Lily Gladstone earned a nomination in the best actress category -- the first Native American ever nominated for an Academy Award.
