"A few years ago, people were saying that Oscars were so white, and since then some real progress has been made", the Saturday Night Live alum stated.

Tiffany Haddish was easily the highlight of the Oscars 2018 - a hilarious, beaming, positive force deserving of all trophies, or, at the very least, getting that money.

After arriving in a gown that was a nod to her late father's Eritrean heritage, Haddish changed into that white McQueen dress yet again for presenting onstage with the great Maya Rudolph.

"I would totally do it if we get paid!" But, she later explained, the dress was so expensive she didn't want to wear it just once.

If Haddish's white onstage dress looked familiar, it's because it's the same Alexander McQueen gown she wore while hosting SNL in the fall and at the summer premiere of Girls Trip. "He said one day I would end up here, and if I ever end up at the Oscars to honour my people", she told ABC's Michael Strahan.

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph are officially everyone's vote for next year's Oscars hosts.

The up-and-coming actor had a breakout in 2017 thanks to her scene-stealing role in Girls Trip, which also starred Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. This dress costs way more than my mortgage. It's a great look for her, and wearing the dress multiple times makes her totally relatable. "I gotta pay for these dresses".

Although their meeting was brief, a laughing Streep clearly enjoyed her time with Haddish. The two actresses hugged and Haddish even curtsied to Streep before sprinting back to finish her interview. And I said: 'I don't give a dang about no taboo.
