Eminem's top six lines from The Wash(in which he plays a crazy ex-employee who shoots up a car wash where Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg work)* "Drop your fuckin' gun out the window!"* "You done fucked with the wrong motherfucker, asshole!"* "See, now this is how coworkers end up getting popped!"* "Blood's gonna look so good on you, asshole!"* "Great job, Robocop-fuck!"* "No, you're trippin'!"

Three reasons Eminem should be nominated for an academy award for 8 Mile1. His convincing, compelling portrayal of a struggling white rapper.2. Competition is slim, and Daniel Day-Lewis overacted like a bandit in Gangs of New York.3. Because Oscar gets down like that! Jack Valenti, whut?
