Has Eminem Won An Oscar?

Marshall Bruce Mathers II, also known as Eminem or “Slim Shady” is recognized as one of the greatest rappers of all time. He has won numerous accolades and bagged many awards with his catchy and simple yet-complicated hip-hop music tracks. Eminem has broken racial barriers and worked on the acceptance of white rappers in the hip-hop music industry. He has redefined hip hop with his detailed lyric writing abilities that focus on expressing his struggle in fitting in as an outcast in the rap music industry which was heavily invaded by black artists.

His song “Godzilla” broke the World Record for Fastest Rap Verse, in which he vocalizes lyrical verses at 10.65 syllables per second in the track’s third verse. Godzilla was released as a single on January 28, 2020, in which he collaborated with Juice Wrld. The song was released after Juice Wrld’s demise (December 8, 2019), making it his first posthumous release. In 2009, Billboard named him “Artist of the Decade”, which leads us to a question, has Eminem ever won the most prestigious Academy Award?
