Eminem... Oscar winner?

How shock was everyone who watch the Oscars when you heard that he won for Best Original song? I know I was. Maybe some of you weren't. I guess I wasn't expecting him to win. Or anybody for that matter. ^^;

I dunno who else was up for an award, because I didn't watch them..

But something about Eminem winning an Oscar makes me feel uneasy inside. ^_^;

U2 was up for an Oscar for their song, "The hands that build America." from the Gangs of New York. I throught they would win, but that didn't happen. Or even that song from Chicago...*shrugs* ^^;

Yeah, and I heard that he didn't even want to attend the Oscars; he didn't care. I think that someone else should've won -- not him. But oh well. What's done is done.

I think I'm the only one who thinks Eminem really should have won...seriously...that song is friggin' awesome, and there was nothing that particularly jumped out at me about the other songs. Just my opinion, mind you. I also don't think that just because a band is established and considered great (aka U2) that everything they do should be considered wonderful...they can produce crap, too.

KitsuNessa ~ I don't think it has anything to do with Eminem not being good.. or anything.. It's just .. the OSCARS.. and I would easily believe what Tenjou said about him not even wanting to attend and care. ~_~;

Well, Michi, the Oscars aren't limited to an elite group of people...they just are THE awards show...and while it was weird to hear his name and "And the Oscar goes to..." in the same sentence, I think it's pretty darn cool. ^_^ LOL and I wouldn't expect him to want to attend the Oscars...it'd prolly be damn boring for someone like him...

I must admit I'm very biased. Simply because I do not like Eminem's music or his views. (I can't stand to listen to it, so I went and read a bunch of lyrics. I was appauled.) However I know nothing about the song in question. I mean, if it isn't about hating gays and killing women, maybe it's good? O.o Eminem's music makes me feel icky inside.

Well, the reason I think U2 should have won over Eminem is the fact that I am a huge U2 fan and I really dislike Eminem's music and things he has said. However, the song he got an award for was less offensive to the ears than most of his stuff I've heard.

I'll admit that I have not heard the song U2 was nominated for, but I have also never heard ANYTHING by them that was crap.
This is just my opinion though.


<edit> G-chan mentioned a reason I dislike Eminem. His lyrical statements are disgusting to me.

Yeah, I mean, I really liked Eminem's "Lose Yourself"...it had a great message. Don't give up, you get one shot sometimes, put all your effort into it, and just go with it.
Frankly, I haven't heard that U2 song ANYWHERE on the radio or TV (first time I heard it was in a pre-Oscar special), and it sounded not to be anywhere near their usual caliber of music. ~_~

Just a case of one song versus another. Eminem's was chosen the better song; he'll probably never win another Oscar, but this was his one shot. ^_~ kinda fitting for the song itself, eh?

good point KitsuNessa, also considering his background it's quite the accomplishment and while I'm a fan of U2 they've had their share of awards and Eminen needs credit for his overall creativity and bluntness. in the words of eminem himself
"I'm like a head trip to listen to
cause I'm only givin you things
you joke about with your friends inside you livin' room
the only difference is I got the balls to say it
in front of ya'll and I aint gotta be false or sugar coated at all
I just get on the mic and spit it
and whether you like to admit it (riiip)
I just shit it better than 90% you rappers out can"

he makes a valid point you must admit

I was disgusted that Eminem won last night. I have no respect for him, and I'm so sick of the media kissing his butt. I was even more disgusted that somehow he won over the other songs that were nominated, especially U2. All four songs were beautiful, but U2's hit me right in the heart. Way to go, Academy >.>.
