Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph, 2019 Oscar Hosts?

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph, 2019 Oscar Hosts?

Tiffany Haddish is the people's celebrity.

Most actors and actresses attended Sunday's Academy Awards in order to celebrate the crowning of year's Oscar winners.But prior to the ceremony, Girls Trip actress Tiffany Haddish was focused on an entirely different objective. She's not out here acting like every red carpet look is effortless.

In a video captured by Variety's Elizabeth Wagmeister, Haddish can be heard yelling, "you're gonna be my momma!"

Haddish, a 38-year-old comedian and actress, stunned the world in her zuria, a Tigrinya term used to describe an Eritrean or Ethiopian dress. The Girl's Trip scene-stealer made sure she made a lasting appearance during her first trip to the Oscar stage, using her incandescent star power to make a statement in her own unique manner. After Haddish informed the audience she had been wearing her heels since 11 o'clock the morning of the Oscars, Rudolph retorted that she had been in hers since the Critics' Choice Awards.

Rudolph: "But we just want to say, don't worry". It probably helped that Tiffany treated Meryl like the Hollywood royalty she is and ended the visit with a curtsey.

And that's why Tiffany Haddish chose to wear her dress for a third time last night, despite it being very "taboo" to do at awards shows.

"I want you to be my mama one day", Haddish said to Streep from the podium, while presenting an award with Maya Rudolph.

"I might Elizabeth Taylor this thing", she said.

"I feel like i should be able to wear what I want, when I want as many times as I want as long as I Febreze it", she said during her "SNL" monologue.

On "SNL", Haddish joked that she'd be wearing her $4,000 Alexander McQueen to any and all formal events she's invited to in the future - bar and bat mitzvahs, a praise-and-worship service at a Baptist church, future weddings if she decides to marry again (and again).

"I would totally do it if we get paid!"

Haddish also made waves for dusting off her by-now iconic white Alexander McQueen for the 2018 Oscars, her third time wearing it in public, which is unheard of in Hollywood.

"[Beyoncé] could probably call me on the phone and I'm going to act like her name is Gladys", Haddish added with a laugh.

Jennifer was seen pulling up her dress so that she wouldn't trip.
