Golden Globes 2023: Eddie Murphy Delivers Hilarious Acceptance Speech Joking About Will Smith/ Ryan Murphy Honors LGBTQ+ Stars Billy Porter, Niecy Nash, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez & More During Speech+Full Winners List

Posted January 11, 2023

The cast of ‘Abbott Elementary’ weren’t the only big winners at last night’s 2023 Annual Golden Globe Awards, the 80th annual soiree also honored living legend, Eddie Murphy.

The film, television, and comedy icon was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his lifetime achievements in the industry and delivered a speech that had the room all eyes and ears taking notes.

While Murphy took time to thank his family, and acknowledge his 40-plus-year career, he offered a little comedy while giving industry newcomers some sound advice.

Murphy took the opportunity to lighten the mood by having a little fun and making a joke about the now infamous Will Smith Oscar incident from last year with Chris Rock.

“I’ve been in show business for 46 years, and I’ve been in the movie business for 41 years, so this has been a long time in the making and greatly appreciated…”

“I’ve been doing this for a long time so I could literally stand up here and keep saying names until they play the piano, but I’m gonna wrap it up and just say something to all the new up-and-coming dreamers and artists that are in the room tonight. I wanna let you know that there is a definitive blueprint that you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity and peace of mind.”

“It’s very simple, just do these three things: Pay your taxes, mind your business — and keep Will Smith‘s wife’s name out your f—ing mouth!”

Get into part of it below.

That’s not all! Another legendary Murphy was honored on Tuesday night at the show.

Ryan Murphy accepted the Carol Burnett Television Achievement Award and used the opportunity to pay homage to the people who he says are part of his legacy, the LGBTQ+ actors he has given opportunities to including Billy Porter, Niecy Nash, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, and more.

Get into his emotional speech below.
