Tiffany Haddish Shares Dream of Hosting the Oscars One Day (VIDEO)

Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish has been killing it since her breakout role in 2017 summer hit, Girls Trip, recently hitting the Academy Awards stage to co-present an award alongside fellow funny lady, Maya Rudolph.

During a recent SXSW panel discussion, Variety reports the stand-up spoke of potentially hosting the industry’s most respected awards show one day, following in the footsteps of Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock and more.

“That would be a dream come true. I know my father would be extremely proud if I got to do that,” she said. “As long as I get a paycheck.”

 

Speaking of a paycheck, the South Central, Los Angeles comic admitted during the same discussion that she thought her recent Oscar appearance would come with compensation.

“In my mind, Maya [Rudolph] and I, we auditioned for the ultimate job because I thought we was getting paid for that presentation,” she said. “And then I found out we didn’t get paid, then I was like, ‘I heard about gift bags.’ And then they were like, ‘We don’t got no gift bags,’ and then I was like, ‘Well, what do I get?’ and they [said], ‘We got a bottle of wine that’s like $13.’ So, I had to buy the wine.”
