Even though she wasn't up for any awards, there's no question that Tiffany Haddish was the unofficial victor of the Oscars.

The star has been open about just how much she loves the curve-hugging dress. "I feel like I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want as long as I Febreeze it", Haddish said during her opening monologue. "So I'm honouring my fellow Eritreans". But Haddish claimed on SNL she "ain't seen this money". The two actresses hugged and Haddish even curtsied to Streep before sprinting back to finish her interview.

Haddish stayed true to her promise by rewearing the dress for the Oscars, and people seriously can't get enough of it.

Tiffany added, "So many".

Then came the moment that's sparked calls for her to host next year's Oscars, run for office, or just make a Thelma And Louise reboot.
