Eddie Murphy wins first Emmy for Saturday Night Live cameo

Eddie Murphy is celebrating a career milestone after winning his first ever Emmy for his Saturday Night Live cameo last year. 

The Nutty Professor star scooped the Creative Arts Emmy Award for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for hosting the sketch show in December 2019. 

Although the awards aired virtually on Saturday night, Eddie, 59, was unable to accept his award. 

It’s been a long game for the acclaimed comedian, who has been nominated three times for his work on SNL since 1983. These nods include outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series and outstanding writing for a variety series.
