Oscar 2018: Tiffany Haddish Meets Idol Meryl Streep

After weeks of telling press leading up to the Oscars that she hoped to meet Meryl Streep at the awards show,  Tiffany Haddish made it happen during the show’s red carpet.

As Streep, dressed in a full-length red gown, walked down the carpet surrounded by screaming fans, Haddish came running, climbing over the rope to give “The Post” actress a hug.

Haddish yelled, “you’re gonna be my momma!” The “Girl’s Trip” star has said multiple times that she wants Streep to play her character’s mom in the movie’s sequel.

While there’s no word on if Streep would take on the role, as she continued down the carpet after briefly speaking to the comedian, Haddish seemed pleased with the interaction, laughing and climbing back over the rope after achieving her night’s goal.

Haddish wore a traditional outfit honoring Eritrea to the Oscars, the birthplace of her father who told her before he died that one day she would end up at an awards show and she should honor her people.
