Tiffany Haddish is set to host the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The network announced Thursday that the Girls Trip breakout star will host the ceremony in Los Angeles on June 18.

The 38-year-old actress and comedian has seen her star rise since Girls Trip was released last summer. She’s gone on to host Saturday Night Live and star in a Super Bowl commercial. Haddish also helped announce the Academy Award nominees last month and will appear on the Oscar telecast on March 4.

She’s also starring with Tracy Morgan in a new TBS sitcom called The Last OG and will appear alongside Kevin Hart in the film Night School later this year.
