Oscars 2020 viewers poke fun at director Martin Scorsese for ‘nodding off’ during Eminem’s performance

EMINEM made a surprise appearance at the 2020 Oscars on Sunday to perform his song Lose Yourself, and director Martin Scorsese had no interest in staying awake to see it.

Viewers had a field day poking fun at the filmmaker, 77, as he sat “half asleep” in the ceremony’s audience.

Most of the talent at the annual award show was singing along or nodding their heads to Eminem, 47, but the Irishman director was nodding off.

Fans were quick to make fun of it, with one tweeting: “Scorcese is about to be on the next diss track.”

Another wrote: “Is it just me or #Scorsese doesn’t give a damn about everything that is not himself?”

A third said: “Wow, I have something in common with Martin Scorsese; I nodded off during Eminem’s performance too.”

The hits kept coming with everyone excited about the “memes for life” that will come from this reacting shot.

One social media user noted how they’ll “never be able to listen [to the song] without picturing Scorsese in his baffled/half asleep state.”

Though his reaction got the most attention, Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell were also spotted looking bored, while Idina Menzel looked confused.

Many were confused as to why Eminem was there and why he was performing a song from 2002, but while the timing might be strange, the rapper is part of Academy Awards history.

He won an Oscar for Best Original Song for Lose Yourself in 2003, off of the 8 Mile soundtrack, and he was unable to accept the award at the show that year.

The 2020 ceremony was his first time attending the Academy Awards, and he made up for his absence almost 20 decades ago by performing his song at this year’s event.

Of the experience, Eminem tweeted: “Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity… Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here.”
