How everyone mocked when the most successful white rapper since Snow decided to go into movies, particularly with 8 Mile, a movie about a poor white boy who dreams of becoming a rap star. Way to push yourself, dude. Then the movie came out and was not only one of the great music films but also showed Eminem could act as well as he rhymed. And then he won an Oscar -- sure, for the theme song and not his performance, but it still counts. A pity he’s done nothing since.
