Top 10 Eddie Murphy Mistakes
Why did it take Eddie Murphy 25 years to win a Golden Globe? The guy dominated an entire decade in Hollywood. Movies like 48 HRS., TRADING PLACES, BEVERLY HILLS COP, and COMING TO AMERICA put him so far ahead of his peers in the 80's that only Michael Jackson could rival his popularity in the world of entertainment. Why did he have to sit back and watch guys who stole his shtick (Jamie Fox, Will Smith, Chris Rock) have their careers blossom into Academy Awards, Emmys, and even MTV Awards, none of which he has sitting on his shelf? In 1983's DELIRIOUS he shocked the world with a stand-up act that described what anal sex with Mr. T would be like. In 2002 he won a Kid's Choice Award for providing the voice of an animated donkey. Eddie got soft and so did his movies. Take away these 11 films below and that Oscar nomination he's hoping for later this month might have come a lot earlier.
