In a sea of award shows, you may say to yourself, “I didn’t even know the MTV Movie & TV Awards were still a thing.” But with Tiffany Haddish hosting this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, it’s definitely going to be a huge “thing.” Especially with Haddish becoming the first black woman to host the show.

Haddish announced the news Thursday on Instagram.


The last year has been phenomenal for Haddish. From appearing in the blockbuster film Girls Trip to securing the Groupon bag, and her upcoming TBS series, The Last OG, Haddish seems to be unstoppable!

The MTV Movie & TV Awards will air Monday, June 18, at 9 p.m. ET.
