  1. Certain award groups do not simply award one winner. They recognize several different recipients, have runners-up, and have third place. Since this is a specific recognition and is different from losing an award, runner-up mentions are considered wins in this award tally. For simplification and to avoid errors, each award in this list has been presumed to have had a prior nomination.

Eminem quickly gained popularity in 1999 with his major label debut album The Slim Shady LP, which won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. The following album, The Marshall Mathers LP, became the fastest-selling solo album in United States history.[2]

The Marshall Mathers LP and his third studio album, The Eminem Show, won Grammy Awards, making Eminem the first artist to win Best Rap Album for three consecutive albums. He then won the award again in 2010 for his album Recovery, giving him a total of 15 Grammys in his career. In 2003, he won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for "Lose Yourself" from the film 8 Mile, in which he also played the lead role. "Lose Yourself" would go on to become the longest-running No. 1 hip hop single.[3]

Eminem then went on hiatus after touring in 2005. He released his first album since 2004's Encore, titled Relapse, in May 2009. In 2010, he released his seventh album, Recovery. It became his sixth consecutive number-one album in the US and achieved international commercial success, topping the chart in several other countries. It stayed at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart for five consecutive weeks and a total of seven weeks.[4][5] Recovery was also reported by Billboard to be the best-selling album of 2010, making Eminem the first artist in Nielsen SoundScan history to have two year-end best-selling albums.[6]
