Remember how 18 years ago Eminem starred in the film 8 Mile and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song? C’mon… “Lose Yourself” won an Oscar. You didn’t remember that? Apparently neither did anyone else in attendace at the 92nd annual Academy Awards on Sunday night.
They also had no idea that The Real Slim Shady was going to be performing the song right smack dab in the middle of the awards show as it had not been previously announced.
The performance was made even more shocking by the fact that Eminem didn’t even show up to the Oscars in 2003 to accept the award for his song.
In fact, we’re not sure what they were thinking, but it definitely wasn’t something good.
“You couldn’t take the song out of the movie and you couldn’t take the movie out of the song,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda, as he introduced some famous musical clips prior to Eminem’s performance.
Apparently, Eminem’s rapping also isn’t cinema.
The cold may have never bothered Idina Menzel, but Em’s act apparently does.
Billie Eilish also seemed very confused by this Eminem character.
Needless to say, Eminem’s performance and the ensuing reaction shots gave the internet life.
Eminem also took to Twitter Sunday night to thank the Academy for letting him perform.
