Tiffany Haddish broke down over her historic Grammy win

Tiffany Haddish broke down in tears after learning she had won her first Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.

The 40-year-old comedian and actress scooped up the prize for her ‘Black Mitzvah’ album during Sunday’s (14.03.21) ceremony, but she wasn’t present to accept the trophy and didn’t find out she had won until Monday (15.03.21) morning while on the set of ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things’.

Following the win, the show shared a sweet video of the moment Tiffany received the exciting news from a producer on the programme, where she became emotional as she spoke of the importance of becoming the first Black woman since 1986 to win the award.

She said: “I just what? I just won a Grammy? Are you serious?”

And when a producer spoke through her earpiece to tell her she had definitely bagged the trophy, she added: “Y’all serious? I really won? You know a Black woman hasn’t won in that category since 1986? A Black woman hasn’t won in that category since Whoopi Goldberg.”

Tiffany then began crying, as she explained she’s been down many “bumpy roads” throughout her career and has doubted her strength on multiple occasions.

She said: “Can I tell you why I’m crying? It’s a lot of bumpy roads that you cross and it’s a lot of times you feel like, ‘What? Am I doing the right thing? Is this good enough? Am I good enough? Am I strong enough to do this job?’ And you just have to believe in yourself as much as you can and against all odds, you just say, ‘You know what? I’m gonna put my best foot forward and I’m gonna give the world the best that I’ve got.’ Anything is possible.”

The ‘Girls Trip’ star was the only woman nominated for Best Comedy Album and beat the likes of Patton Oswalt, Jim Gaffigan, Bill Burr, and Jerry Seinfeld to take home the award.
