Tiffany Haddish has been riding high off of the success of the 2017 film “Girls Trip,” her Showtime special, and all of her other successful endeavors. Now the comedian will be honored at the eleventh annual Essence Women in Hollywood event.
Each year the event is held right ahead of the Academy Awards, making it one of the hottest events during Oscar weekend.
According to Essence, this year’s event “will honor four extraordinary young Black women in film and television whose fearless approach to navigating Hollywood has inspired those around them and taken the concept of representation to new heights.”
The remaining three honorees include Lena Waithe, Tess Thompson, and Danai Gurira.
