    The visible lack of amusement or any other reaction from the legendary director caused a flow of comments from the Twitterians, marking one of the funniest moments in the awards show.

    A surprise performance by rap star Eminem at the Oscars on Sunday night apparently was not so surprising for Martin Scorsese. Many spectators noted that the 77-year-old director of The Irishman looked like he was about to fall asleep or tried to rock with the hit, nodding at several points.

    ​Of course, this reaction could not escape the Twitter crowd's notice.

    ​It is not clear, however, if Scorsese was not happy with the rap music, or just tired.

    ​Some noted that he was not the only celebrity left underwhelmed by the performance.

    ​Eminem performed Lose Yourself, which brought him an Oscar for Best Original Song back in 2003 with his hip hop drama 8 Mile. He later published a tweet, thanking the Academy and noting "Sorry it took me 18 years to get here".

    ​This year's awards ceremony was a dramatic one, with South Korean film Parasite winning as both Best Foreign Film and Best Picture. Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor in a leading role for his intense performance in "Joker", while Rene Zellweger took home Best Actress for her role in "Judy".
