The comedienne and actress stole the show at the 2018 New York Film Critics Circle Awards with her witty, riveting, and hilarious acceptance speech.
Prior to 2017, Tiffany Haddish (pictured) was not quite a household name in entertainment. However, a downright hilarious performance in a supporting role in last summer’s box office smash Girls Trip changed all that.
Haddish, 38, started to garner some attention around 2013 by landing a number of guest appearances on some popular television shows. From 2014 to 2015, the talented thespian landed a role on OWN’s If Loving You Is Wrong, which put her in close proximity with some major players on the big and small screen.
Then in 2017, Haddish got her super break starring alongside Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Regina Hall in the Malcolm Lee-directed Girls Trip. This film once again proved that black women can open movies at the box office, play in leading roles, and reel in a ton of money in the process.
