Only Two Oscar-Nominated Songs Will Be Performed at This Year’s Academy Awards

It’s no secret that the producers behind this year’s Academy Awards Ceremony are desperate to keep the show under three hours…and they’re taking some pretty extreme measures to make it happen.

Eminem took out a full-page ad to diss music critics who panned his new album
