Tiffany Haddish just scored a major feat for her career as she has won her first Emmy for her hosting gig on ‘Saturday Night Live‘ earlier this year according to ET:

During the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, the actress won her first Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for hosting Saturday Night Live. Haddish notably beat out SNL alums Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph and Tina Fey, who was nominated for hosting the show’s season finale.

At the time, Haddish was celebrated for making history as the first black female stand-up comic to host the show in its 43 seasons. (She’s the second black comedian to win for hosting alongside David Chappelle.)

During her hilarious, candid monologue, Haddish addressed everything from the growing number of sexual harassment and misconduct scandals to her own stance on eschewing Hollywood fashion traditions, notably by wearing the same white Alexander McQueen gown to multiple events.

“I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want, as long as I Febreze it,” Haddish said, referring to the $4,000 dress she was wearing, which she’d previously worn to the Girls Trip premiere. (She wore it again a few months later to present at the Oscars.) “My whole team told me, ‘Tiffany, you cannot wear that dress on SNL. You already wore it. It’s taboo to wear it twice.’ And I said, ‘I don’t give a dang about no taboo. I spent a lot of money on this dress. This dress cost way more than my mortgage.’”

The 70th Creative Arts Emmy Awards were handed out over two days, on Sept. 8 and 9, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. A telecast of the awards will air Saturday, Sept. 15, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FXX.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, co-hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC. Check out the full list of nominees and ET’s ongoing Emmy coverage here.

Congrats to Tiffany! Next up for the actress/comedian is her upcoming Netflix film ‘The Oath,’ followed by ‘Nobody’s Fool’ in November but first, her film ‘Night School’ with Kevin Hart will arrive later this month.
