With of the other awards [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm] has, why not add an Emmy award to that list? He just won one the day for being in a car commercial!

According to HiphopDX.com:

Eminem has garnered Grammy Awards, and even an Oscar. Now, a commercial starring the Detroit emcee has won an Emmy Award.

The commercial, titled “Born of Fire: Chrysler 200,” featured Eminem driving through Detroit while the famous beat to the rapper’s seminal track “Lose Yourself” played in the background.

“We were very surprised,” said Aaron Allen, a creative director at Wieden & Kennedy, the ad agency responsible for the commercial. “We really wanted to win but wondered if humor would win instead.”

Other winners included [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm], a winner for hosting “Saturday Night Live,” and Gwenyth Paltrow, whose performance on the show “Glee” included singing [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cee Lo[/lastfm]‘s smash hit, “F… You.”

Does Eminem have the golden touch with advertisers? If so, the flood gates have just been opened for him to make some major endorsement money!!
