Tiffany Haddish has been on such a winning streak that the comedienne is well on her way to becoming a household name. She's met everyone on her list from Oprah to Meryl Streep, and she is the latest celebrity to be taken into Hollywood's bosom and refuses to be overlooked.
Her night at the Oscars was no different. One of the highlights of the show was seeing Haddish and Maya Rudolph banter. Twitter users have launched a campaign to have the two host the prestigious ceremony in 2019.
Vulture reports that Tiffany Haddish is ready and willing to host under one condition.
“I would love to do something like that. I know my father would be extremely proud if I got to do that … As long as I get a paycheck,” she told the audience at the premiere of The Last O.G., her new show with Tracy Morgan, at the SXSW Film Festival on Monday. “In my mind, Maya and I, we were auditioning for the ultimate job — because I thought we're getting paid for that presentation.”
“When I found out that we weren’t getting paid, I was like, ‘Well, I heard about gift bags.’ And then it was like ‘We don’t have no gift bags,’ and I was like, ‘Well, what do I get?’ They were like, ‘We’ve got a bottle of wine that’s like $13.’ So I got the wine.”
Tiffany Haddish hosting the Oscars would send ratings through the roof. Remember how many of us tuned in to watch her do the Oscars nominations? Cut the check, CBS. You won't be disappointed.
