Eminem gave a surprise performance of his hit “Lose Yourself” from his film 8 Mile at the 92nd annual Academy Awards on Sunday. The song earned the rapper an Oscar in 2003. 

In 2003, he won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 75th Academy Awards. It was the first hip hop artist ever to win an Academy Award. He was not present at the ceremony, but co-writer Luis Resto accepted the award, Hollywoodlife reported.
