8 mile, a movie starring Eminem, releases.
8 mile is sort of a semi-biography, loosely based on Eminem`s life, but the plot involves fictional characters. Eminem stars as JImmy `B-Rabbit` Smith Jr. B-Rabbit, like how Eminem was, is an aspiring rapper and faces many conflicts and betrayals throughout the movie before reaching his goal. The movies was both a critical and commercial success and was nominated for many awards. It won an Academy Award for Best Original Song, Eminem's "Lose Yourself".
