Eminem aka The Real Slim Shady stood up and never sat down!

The Creative Emmy Awards show took place during the weekend (September 3-4) where many took home awards for their performances on television.

One of those winners was none other than Eminem who won this year’s Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special, per Deadline.

This makes the iconic rapper one award short of joining the EGOT club (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Other members of this elite honor include Jennifer Hudson, Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend, and Audrey Hepburn, to name a few.

The Detroit native won an Oscar for the song “Lose Yourself” from the film 8 Mile, and fourteen Grammys for his music career. Not sure if we’ll be seeing the rapper on broadway to get a Tony, but you never know.

Included in the win were Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige for their collaborative and epic performance.

The 12-minute showcase took place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood and marks the first time in NFL history that a halftime show won the honor.

Produced by Roc Nation (Jay-Z), Jesse Collins Entertainment, and DPS. Collins, who served as the Executive Producer said he was “nervous” about the show since Jay-Z was “watching.” However, the line-up completely changed the way halftime shows will run in the future. 

The show was produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment, DPS, and Roc Nation. British director Hamish Hamilton, who has directed the halftime shows since 2010 told Billboard,

“It was one of, if not the greatest Super Bowl halftime shows ever,” director Hamish Hamilton told Billboard recently. “That [artist] lineup changed the world – they changed music, they changed politics…”

He added, 

“It was a hip-hop L.A. Super Bowl once-in-a-lifetime moment. It just had everything extra going for it, from that first shot of Dre in his studio in Compton.”
