Eminem’s Oscars 2020 song choice was a surprising one. Parasite infection at the Oscars was not the only headline. King of Rap’s Lose Yourself (Best Original Score 2003) performance resulted in some of the best moments. Reactions ranging from confused to overwhelmed gave birth to a new Oscars category.
Best Celebrity Reactions to Eminem’s Oscar 2020 Lose Yourself performance
Parasite Infection that cost four Oscars, is not the only thing making history at the star-studded event. Eminem’s Lose Yourself (8 Mile) is also making headlines 17 years after its conception. The song that won an Oscar for Best Original Score in 2003 and didn’t see its creator receive the award becomes the creator’s song of choice at the 92nd Academy Awards.
The unusual pick received a standing ovation but it also paved way for some of the funniest and best-baffled reactions to Eminem’s surprise Oscar 2020 performance. Idina Menzel and Billie Eilish top the list. Here are the nominees for best celebrity reactions to Eminem Lose Yourself Oscars 2020 performance.

Looks like the song isn’t cinematic enough for Scorsese.
@AustinHuff from Twitter thinks Martin’s reaction is similar to every parents’ watching Eminem at the Oscars 2020.
@JJWatt also jumps in and tweets on the reaction by The Irishman director. He writes.
Whole Oscars crowd about to go hit a workout after Eminem “Lose Yourself” performance.
Besides that old guy that was sleeping, obviously.
Cutting to Martin Scorsese during the musical number is automatically next year’s best short film winner.
Next up is Idina Menzel and Billie Eilish.
Idina Menzel confused
Idina Menzel’s face looked like she had seen an alien. Her reaction was epic.
Seems like Idina Menzel doesn’t know what Eminem is saying.
Billie Eilish reacts to Eminem Lose Yourself
Billie Eilish was probably a year old when this 8 Mile song raked in an Oscar (2003). Her baffled reaction is probably the best one and wins the Oscars 2020 for the best celebrity reaction in my opinion.
