Eddie Murphy finally won an Emmy after nearly four decades, but. Murphy, who earned his first Emmy nomination 37 years ago for his performance on “Saturday Night Live,” took the award for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series during Saturday night's Creative Arts Emmys ceremony, Entertainment Weekly reported
- The 59-year-old black Hollywood star has an impressive net worth of $200 million.
- Fun fact: he has 10 children ranging from a baby to a 30-year-old.
- His most famous movies include 'Coming to America', 'Beverly Hills Cop', Shrek and 'Dr.Dolittle'.
Like Eddie, he thanked like a true comedian. Laughing, sending big vibes, being humble and intelligent. He thanked the cast, writers and crew of SNL for helping him comeback and put an incredible show. He finished the video by making a funny statement of "thank you everybody for...(pause)...giving me an Emmy".
This recognition means a lot to someone who confessed having a tough time going out from his luxury sofa in his multi-million dollar mansion in Los Angeles for going to work. He returned last year with the main role in the recent Netflix film 'Dolemite is My Name' from 2019 and in 2020 as the host of the famous comedy show that started on October 11th, 1975.
At the end, not everything is money. He was truly happy and hopefully, this will motivate him to perform more, because we as fans can't get ever enough of the comedian who has one of the most epic laughs from Hollywood. Thank you and congratulations Eddie!
