Jimmy Kimmel had hosting duties at this year’s Academy Awards, but it was Tiffany Haddish (with some help from Maya Rudolph) who stole the show. The comedian and actress made her Oscar debut at Sunday’s big event, and not only did she deliver huge laughs, but she proved that she’s a force.
From her fierce fashion statement — she ditched her high heels like a boss — to her fangirl moment with Meryl Streep, Haddish is super-relatable. We’re not the only ones on board with the hosting idea. Fans are loving her realness and her comedic bond with Rudolph: “I will only watch the Oscars next year if Tiffany and Maya host,” wrote one. Tyra Banks is campaigning for Haddish too.
When the Girls Trip actress was told about Twitter’s obsession with her hosting the Oscars (or anything), she said, “Well, I agree with those people.” Fingers crossed the academy listens and Haddish scores the gig.
