Eminem Wins Oscar for Best Song

Rap star Eminem won the Academy Award for best movie theme song on Sunday for “Lose Yourself” from his semi-autobiographical film “8 Mile.”

Eminem’s hit anthem beat out entries from music luminaries U2, Paul Simon and songs from the films “Chicago” and “Frida.”

Luis Resto, one of the co-writers of the song, accepted the Oscar on behalf of Eminem, who won critical acclaim for his portrayal of an up-and-coming rapper struggling to make it out Detroit’s mean streets.

“He’s creative, he has symphonies in his head,” Resto said of the controversial rapper. “He’s a good man, good heart.”
