Tiffany Haddish turned her first Emmy nom into a win for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, hosting NBC’s late night show Saturday Night Live.
“Tiffany couldn’t be here tonight but guess what, Tiffany? I GOT YOUR AWARD GIRL!” enthuses presenter Tichina Arnold said. “Take pictures of me!” she directed the audience and press as she kissed the statuette. “I want to give it back,” she said as fellow presenter Gerald McRaney urged her to do so.
Haddish, whose whirlwind year has included a breakout performance in Girls Trip, presenting at the Oscars, hosting the MTV Movie and TV Awards, and co-starring in the TBS comedy The Last O.G., joins a heady list of actresses taking home this trophy for hosting SNL. Among them are Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Melissa McCarthy and Betty White who nabbed a Guest Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy that way.
