According to reports, the Academy is 'holding a seat' for Taylor Swift in the hopes that she'll arrive at the Oscars 2024. According to Executive Producer or the show Molly McNearney, they're hoping that the singer will be there. She told Indie Wire: "Listen, we all love Taylor. She’s the best cheerleader you could ever possibly have in any audience, whether it’s the NFL or an award show, so if she wants to get on a plane and come to the Oscars, then we’ll hold a seat for her, 100 per cent."

Taylor wrapped up her shows in Singapore last night, so could she grace the Oscars red carpet? We'll have to wait and see...

Ryan Gosling is preparing to perform at the Oscars tonight, with the Barbie star set to sing I'm Just Ken - reportedly, alongside 75 other Kens. Brilliant. 

The track is nominated in the Best Original Song category, and Jimmy Kimmel spoke about the upcoming performance, saying that it would be a 'big production' saying: "For a couple of months leading up, he's saying, 'Oh, I haven't been asked to sing.' That's untrue. He had to think about it for a while but he came in and looked around at the space, at the theatre and was, 'Okay yeah, I think I will do this.'"

Excited? Same.
