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".
