    I do remember hearing at the time that he felt that fame was beginning to make him uneasy.

    I thought that it was part of his brand. Everyone wants an Oscar and dreams of making an Oscar speech, so the coolest thing to do would be to win it and not care.

    I read before that he thought he doesn’t stood a chance to win. He stayed at home watching cartoon with his daughter. I can compare his Oscar rare appearance as the same as Katharine Hepburn and Woody Allen.

    This is the VERY well known excuse that was given back then. Why is this a thread?

    On the topic of his winning song, seeing Martin Scorsese barely staying awake listening to it was probably the most hilarious thing from last night’s show.

    I have this notion that the reason why Eminem’s performance was kept secret was that, if it was announced that he’ll be appeared or given a slot in the show it will cause some criticisms.

    He was too cool for school back then at his peak, and the thought of performing at the establishment Oscars was against Eminem’s “brand.” Times have remarkably changed, and now we have this happen last night.

    Debunked! Eminem reveals all to Variety and he does have a point, with “Lose Yourself” being uncharacteristically not explicit for him.

    For 17 years we have been fooled. Glad Eminem spoke and spilled the truth.

    He was about to, but there was vomit on his sweater already.

    Lol. As everyone else mentioned. He performed the song at the time recently at another televised event. He didn’t feel like it would work. Also he was in a different mindset then lol. All that stuff

    I just love movies. And awards.
