An actress, comedian and best-selling author who has been on a roll lately has just landed yet another gig. MTV announced today that Tiffany Haddish will host the “2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards.”
The ceremony is set for Monday, June 18, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The 2018 categories and nominees will be announced at a later date.
“Tiffany Haddish is quickly establishing herself as one of the most sought-after actresses and comedic talents in television and film,” MTV said in its announcement. “She exploded onto the scene after her breakout performance in the blockbuster hit ‘Girls Trip,’ recently released a New York Times bestselling book, ‘The Last Black Unicorn,’ and late last year became the first black female stand-up comedian to host ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Haddish’s viral appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ led her to become the face of Groupon and appear in the company’s 2018 Super Bowl commercial.”
Haddish is also set to star opposite Tracy Morgan in the TBS sitcom “The Last OG” and will appear alongside Kevin Hart in Universal’s “Night School,” premiering later this year.
