America’s sweetheart Tiffany Haddish won Best Actress in a stacked category that included Angela Bassett and Lupita Nyong’o. Haddish, who has the beauty, charm, and talent of Jennifer Lawrence without the feeling that she was developed in a lab, won the nation’s heart this year in “Girls Trip,” and on Saturday Night Live. She’s now starring in “The Last O.G.” with Tracy Morgan and slated to come out in about one million movies,thank the lord.

Finally, shout out to Ava DuVernay for beating Chris Brown for the Video Director of the Year Award. Neither of them are Jewish, but we’re just always psyched to see a woman beat Chris Brown.
