American rap legend, Marshall Mathers popularly known as Eminem made a surprise appearance on stage at the 2020 Oscars.
Eminem performed his hit song ‘Lose Yourself’ on stage throwing the audience into moments of nostalgia.
The whole audience gave him a standing ovation for his thrilling performance.
More than this though, Eminem used his performance to officially accept the award he received 18 years ago for the same song. He didn’t show up in protest back then to receive the award because he had issues with the Academy.
“Lose Yourself” helped Eminem win an Oscar in 2003 in the category “best original song” but interestingly he didn’t come to the ceremony to accept it.
It is quite an emotional experience for him as he received the award after 18 years.
An excited Eminem took to social media to appreciate and thank the organizers for honoring him.
Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity… Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here .”
