TSR Black Excellence: Eddie Murphy Wins First Emmy For Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series For ‘Saturday Night Live’


Eddie Murphy just won his first #Emmy for his guest role on ‘Saturday Night Live’. According to People, this was the fifth Emmys nomination and first win for Murphy.

This was the 59-year old’s first nomination in 21 years but his fifth nomination overall. He was last nominated in 1999 for outstanding animated program (for programming one hour or less) for Fox’s The PJs.

In December, Murphy reprised some of his most iconic SNL characters when he hosted the show for the first time in 35 years.

Murphy was nominated alongside Fred Willard (Modern Family), Adam Driver (Saturday Night Live), Dev Patel (Modern Love), Brad Pitt (Saturday Night Live) and Luke Kirby (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel).

The Creative Arts Emmys honor the artistic and technical accomplishments across a variety of television genres. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the virtual ceremony, hosted by Nicole Byer, was split into five different nights leading up to Sunday’s primetime show, according to People.
