Hugh Hart of The Denver Post spoke with music and movie insiders who all seem to have big expectations for Eminem’s ‘8 Mile’. Some have been wondering if Slim is worthy of Oscar buzz in the film, and Tom O’Neill, author of ‘Movie Awards: The Ultimate, Unofficial Guide to the Oscars, Golden Globes, Critics, Guild & Indie Honors’, concurs. “The buzz on ‘8 Mile’ at this point is excellent,” O’Neill said. “People are beginning to whisper, ‘Do you think it’s really possible that Eminem could be nominated for an Oscar?’ Critics are at least asking the question.” Kim Osorio, executive editor of The Source added, “You’ve got to understand where Eminem comes from. Even though he’s white, he comes from the hip-hop community. Like any MC, whatever color, he started out at the bottom and worked his way to the top because he has so much talent in terms of writing rhymes.”
