Redline on a stock 2005 VQ35DE engine is 6,500rpm IIRC (on the '06 cars and certain limited edition cars it was fitted with the so-called "revup" engine and for them the redline is 7,000) so 8,000rpm is at least 1000rpm above the redline. If you were accelerating to reach that 8k rpm the limiter should have kicked in at 7k (or 7.5k on a revup), although I've seen varying reports of the effectiveness of the limiter and some remaps remove it entirely. And of course you could have gotten to that by downshifting - to be honest though it doesn't make much difference - 8k is 8k.
Holding that for a minute is going to result in serious unpleasantness to say the least. With these engines (and from the symptoms you describe) I'm guessing the most likely scenario is valve float during the over-rev resulting in the pistons hitting the valves and bending them. There may be other damage to the pistons themselves but you aren't going to know until you get it apart to look.
Definitely don't try and start it any further - you risk doing more damage. Honestly though you're in for a big bill, it's not quite at the level of scrapping the block but it's going to need a new valvetrain at least.
