Eddie Murphy has said he is sure he will win an Academy Award in the future, and he even has a place set aside for it in his home.

The Dr. Doolittle star revealed his Oscar ambition saying he will "be around for a while" so there is plenty of time for him to achieve the feat, even if it comes near the end of his career in the Lifetime Achievement category.

"I have a table all ready where it would look great," Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'll wait because I'm pretty healthy, I'm gonna be around for a while and if I don't get it then, eventually, when I'm 90 – what's the one they give you just because you've been in the business so long? Eventually they're gonna have to give me that."

The 55-year-old actor also reflected on the popularity of some of his films, claiming he has never starred in a flop.

"In my view, I've never had a flop movie or a movie that didn't work," he said. "If I did the movie, and they paid me lots and lots of money to do it, it's a f***ing smash. Any movie that I was in that they paid me a lot of money for was a f***ing smash.

"And, to be perfectly honest, we celebrate Pluto Nash at my house. We don't have Christmas Day, we have Pluto Nash Day. And we don't have Halloween, we have Vampire in Brooklyn Day."
