21 Famous Singers Who Won An Academy Award
Did you know that Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” holds the Guinness World Record for “Longest Running Single at Number One for a Rap Song” at 23 weeks? Aside from doing insanely well commercially, the 8 Mile track also won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2003. You might recall that the rapper wasn’t even there to receive his Oscar.

But hey, better to doze off on your own couch than at a ceremony with millions of people watching, right?
