Girls Trip breakout star Tiffany Haddish has been an unstoppable force this year. She was the first black female standup comic to host Saturday Night Live, and she wrote a bestselling book, The Last Black Unicorn. Plus, she is the face of Groupon and appeared in their 2018 Super Bowl commercial. Her episode on Drunk History earned the #1 rating for original shows for men 18-34.
Now, Haddish is continuing with her success. MTV announced today that the unabashedly real actress will host the MTV Movie & TV Awards in June 2018. The awards have been pushed back from May to June, perhaps in an effort to be seen as a precursor to the Emmys.
The show will air on Monday, June 18 at 9 pm. Nominations have yet to be announced.
