Hustle & Flow (2005)

This indie drama about the ins and outs of the rap game was the talk of 2005, from its critical attention to its unexpected Oscar win for Best Original Song. "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp," performed by Three 6 Mafia, taking the Oscar was arguably the highlight of that year's telecast.
