Every Bit Was Well Planned

Oscars performance choreographer Mandy Moore revealed just how involved Gosling was. According to Moore, Gosling clearly envisioned how everything should unfold. The show’s music director Rickey Minor had a tight schedule, with only two to six hours a day to record and rehearse everything before the big day. Just a few days before the show, “cameo Kens” appeared. The original “Barbie” movie actors including Simu Liu, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Ncuti Gatwa, and Scott Evans. That addition made the performance even cooler.
