Actress, Comedian, and Author, Tiffany Haddish is having her moment right now and she was not gonna let anyone or anything stop it—not even a barrier at the 2018 Academy Awards.
Described by red carpet interviewer Michael Strahan as "a kid...[with] a dream...just in heaven right now," at the awards show, Haddish was grinning from ear-to-ear all night long. From the red carpet to her presenting duties, nobody could squash her joy.
And she came to the Oscars with a purpose, as she told Ryan Seacrest:
I’m looking forward to meeting Meryl Streep and asking her to be my mama.
And she got her chance, or rather—she MADE her chance. Hiking her skirt up and stepping over the red velvet ropes that stood between her and Streep, Haddish made her way over the barrier and right into Streep's path. With her hands on her hips, Haddish waited for Streep to reach her and the two had what appeared to be a warm, albeit, short exchange. One in which, Haddish even curtseyed for her idol.
Fans of the Girls' Trip star ate it up:
Wouldn't we all?
