YMMV / Eddie Murphy

  • Award Snub: At the 79th Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Just watch Delirious.
    • Or Raw, for that matter.
    • His tenure on Saturday Night Live: a genuine breakout star who saved the show in its darkest hour - when it could have legitimately been cancelled due to the miscues after the original cast had departed - providing some of the most hilarious sketches of The '80s.
    • The episode Stevie Wonder guest-hosted, and Eddie breaks out his Stevie impersonation... right in front of him.
  • Dork Age: It's generally accepted that Murphy's films between 1989's Harlem Nights and the 1996 remake of The Nutty Professor comprised this. His films from the 2000s, with the exceptions of one or two Shrek movies and Dreamgirls, also qualify.
  • Glurge: His hippy-soul album, Love's Alright, is about as sappy as it gets. Hearing a foul-mouthed comedian singing about world peace and the racial equality is near-impossible to take seriously.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One of his signature bits from RAW was taking a giant swing at Bill Cosby's moral compass towards his lewd routines; of course, that moral compass seemed to be a facade when Cosby was hit with over 50 allegations of sexual assault in 2014-15.
