Tiffany Haddish is the first black woman to host the MTV Movie and TV awards — and her opening monologue was amazing
Tiffany Haddish is the host of the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards.
She is the first black woman to host the show.
“It’s been a year of firsts for black people,” Haddish said in her opening monologue. “I’m the first black woman to host the MTV Movie and TV Awards, ‘Black Panther’ is the first African American movie to make $1 billion, and ‘A Quiet Place’ is the first film to scare black people out of talking in movie theaters.”
Haddish also kicked the show off by addressing audience members including Zendaya, Nick Jonas, and, of course, the Kardashians.
Haddish also summed up the general appeal of the awards show: “I’m glad this show covers both TV and Movies because now I get to flirt with Chris Pratt from ‘Parks and Recreation’ and Chris Pratt from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,'” she said. “Hey, Chris. I got a galaxy you can guard.”
You can watch the rest of her hilarious monologue below.
