Comedy At The Creative Arts Emmys

The Creative Arts Emmys happened over the weekend and an  African-American sweep took over. 

Tiffany Haddish won an Emmy for hosting “Saturday Night Live“.  This actress has blown up since her performance on “Girls Trip”. She co-stars in the sitcom “The Last O.G.”

She was a no-show at the Emmys, but presenter Tichina Arnold accepted it on her behalf.

“Tiffany couldn’t be here tonight. But, guess what, Tiffany! I’ve got your award, girl!” Arnold said, holding up the statuette triumphantly.

“I think you’re going to have to give that back,” presenter Gerald McRaney (“This Is Us”) teased her.


Katt Williams won the guest comedy actor award for playing Glover’s alligator-owning Uncle Willie  “Atlanta.”. It was Williams’ first Emmy win, off his first Emmy nomination.


Shauna Duggins became the first woman to win an Emmy for stunt coordination for a comedy or variety series for “GLOW,” about women’s wrestling in the 1980s.

Backstage she said she was “honoured to be the first woman” to receive the award and “This show, in general, breaks the mould for women.”.
