Eddie Murphy Wins His First Ever Emmy Award!

Eddie Murphy is an Emmy winner!

The 59-year-old actor won the award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his Saturday Night Live hosting gig during the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday (September 19).

Eddie returned to SNL for the first time in 35 years to host the show back in December. His episode gave the show its highest ratings in over two years.

Also up for the award was Adam Driver for Saturday Night Live, Luke Kirby for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Dev Patel for Modern Love, Brad Pitt for Saturday Night Live, and the late Fred Willard for Modern Family.

This was the fifth Emmy nomination for Eddie. His last nomination was 21 years ago in 1999 for outstanding animated program (for programming one hour or less) for Fox’s The PJs.

Congrats Eddie!
