Marcus Mumford Is ‘Just Ken’ to Carey Mulligan in Adorable Video From the 2024 Oscars: Watch

She’s an Academy Award nominee. He’s just Ken. In a sweet video from the 2024 Oscars Sunday (March 10), Marcus Mumford swept Carey Mulligan — whose performance in Maestro was nominated this year for best actress — off her feet in an adorable ode to Greta Gerwig’s Barbie.

The clip finds the Mumford & Sons frontman carrying his wife through what appears to be the backstage halls of Dolby Theatre, where the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted awards were held. Mulligan repeatedly throws her head back in laughter as her husband trudges along, making sure her black-and-white gown didn’t touch the floor.

The “I Will Wait” singer paired the video with a snippet of “I’m Just Ken,” a song in which Ryan Gosling’s male lead sings of his unreciprocated worship of Margot Robbie’s character in Barbie.

Both Barbie and Maestro were up for awards at Sunday’s ceremony, although Mulligan lost out to Poor Things‘ Emma Stone for best actress. Gosling was bested by Oppenheimer‘s Robert Downey Jr. in the best supporting actor category, while Christopher Nolan’s atomic bomb thriller won over Gerwig’s film about the Mattel empire.

And while “I’m Just Ken” was also beat out by Billie Eilish and Finneas’ fellow Barbie hit “What Was I Made For?,” the song unofficially won the award for most show-stopping moment of the 2024 Oscars, thanks to Gosling’s over-the-top performance of the track. Joined by Mark Ronson, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash, Wolfgang Van Halen and a couple of his fellow Ken actors, the Notebook star delivered a Kenergetic showcase featuring choreography, backup dancers, Barbie-head cutouts and hilarious crowd work.

Mumford and Mulligan have been married since 2012. The couple shares three children: 8-year-old Evelyn Grace, 6-year-old Wilfred, and a daughter born last year.
