Eminem Chrysler Commercial Wins An Emmy

Eminem's Detroit-themed commercial snags Emmy honors.

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 Justin Timberlake, a winner for hosting "Saturday Night Live," and Gwenyth Paltrow, whose performance on the show "Glee" included singing Cee Lo's smash hit, "Fuck You."
