If anyone should be honored for career achievement – it’s Eddie Murphy.
The 55-year-old comedian and actor will be honored for his remarkable career spanning over 35 years at the 2016 Hollywood Film Awards in November.
Via the LA Times:
Murphy, who was honored in 2015 with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, earns his latest accolades for a career that includes years on “Saturday Night Live,” blockbuster hits “Shrek,” “Coming to America” and “Beverly Hills Cop,” as well as an Academy Award-nominated turn as James “Thunder” Early in the 2006 musical “Dreamgirls.”
“Eddie Murphy has had a spectacular career as a comedian, actor, writer, producer and director, spanning more than 35 years,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of Dick Clark Productions, in a statement released Monday. “We look forward to honoring his extraordinary body of work.”
James Corden will host the ceremony set to take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Nov. 6.
