The Best Original Song winner, "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile
(2002), was not performed at the ceremony. Reportedly, ABC asked Eminem
to perform an edited version of the rap, but he refused (and did not attend the ceremony nor pick his Oscar up). It was the first time since the Awards were first telecast that the Best Original Song winner was not performed. See more
