Eddie Murphy Mentioned Will Smith’s Oscars Slap While Accepting The Cecil B. DeMille Award During The Golden Globes
Last night’s Golden Globes were a mixed bag of milestones and forgettable moments that will more than likely be upstaged by the Oscars in a few weeks. But one big moment was Eddie Murphy receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his longstanding career in comedy, cringeworthy cultural drag, and many other genres of note. And his acceptance speech was both inspirational and cautionary as he reminded everyone in the room that even now, you still need to keep Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s name out of your fuckin’ mouth if you want to last in the business as long as he has.
RuPaul Made Herstory By Winning His Fifth Consecutive Emmy
Tonight is the big, 85-hour-long Emmys main event, but because there are approximately 9,876,988 Emmys to give out, the Creative Arts Emmys have been happening all week long. Nicole Byer hosted the five-night event, and she was up for the Emmy for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Competition Program, making her the first Black woman to be nominated for that award. But RuPaul won that Emmy, as Nicole stood by thinking, “They got me to host this shit and didn’t even give me the Emmy?!” No, apparently, Nicole knew she was no match for Ru!
Bill Cosby’s Rep Slammed Eddie Murphy From Prison For Joking About Him On “Saturday Night Live”
Eddie Murphy was the host of Saturday Night Live‘s Christmas episode and he was pretty good, which makes sense since he’s a comedian and used to work on the show in the 80s. He brought along a bunch of A-list black comedians for his opening monolgue like Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Tracy Morgan. And in that same monologue he made a joke about former comedian and current remorseless convicted criminal, Bill Cosby. Well, Bill Cosby’s rep earned his Christmas bonus (good luck getting it) by keeping Cosby’s name out there and slapping Eddie Murphy for the joke.
Eddie Murphy Says That Women Think It’s Sexy That He Has 10 Kids
Eddie Murphy is promoting Dolemite Is My Name so he popped up on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, and she brought up the fact that he’s got 10 children. Murphy opined that the ladies love that he has so many mouths to feed, and it’s some sort of aphrodisiac for them that he’s got to drive a double-decker bus just to get everyone to school on time. Who are these women? The Duggar wives?
Eddie Murphy Says He’s Thinking About Making A Stand-Up Comedy Comeback
Eddie Murphy’s got so many damn mouths to feed it’s no wonder he’s thinking about coming out of semi-retirement and treading the boards once again as a stand-up comedian. Eddie appeared in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with his friend Jerry Seinfeld and revealed that he’s planning on getting back to stand-up soon. I guess doing indie films like 2016’s perplexing Mr. Church (his last theatrical release, seen by upwards of 12 people) only earned him enough money to send all his eleventy million kids to a decent State school.
A Sequel To “Coming To America” Starring Eddie Murphy Is Happening
Eddie Murphy has announced that he’s in the process of bringing us a sequel to 1988’s Coming To America, and though I am somewhat intrigued, I’m also a bit annoyed. Why does Hollywood keep digging up old movies and try to love them back to life like their Celine Dion? Some things need to remain untouched like sleeping alligators and you auntie’s favorite bar-hopping wig. Unfortunately, that rule doesn’t seem to apply to films from the 80s so this sequel will more than likely happen.
