Dear Gossips,

Tiffany Haddish was not nominated for a Golden Globe yesterday. As we’ve seen over the years (decades?), the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is a bizarre organisation with their own objectives and priorities. The Globes certainly help build award season momentum but, as demonstrated, their choices don’t always align with the Academy or with the other awards boards, like the SAGs. Not that it matters either way because at this point it’s already been established that Tiffany is indeed one of the Entertainers of the Year, included in the recent New York Times Great Performers feature just posted this week that also celebrated the year in horror.

Tiffany, Nicole Kidman, Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet and more all participated in short films directed by Floria Sigismondi. Click here to see. I’ve only watched Tiffany’s because horror is not my jam. Which is why I feel like, with the exception of Get Out, and I was terrified during Get Out, I’ve completely missed out on the 2017 horror moment. Which sucks for me. Because I’m not one of those people who derives superiority from pop culture exclusion. (Those people are called snobs.) I want to live it, I want to be there. But where horror is fun for those who enjoy it, I can’t enjoy something that makes me feel so afraid. Being afraid will kill me, I’m convinced of it. A few weeks ago, around Halloween, they asked me if I wanted to shoot a segment that involved me going through one of those haunted houses. I said, fine, I’ll do it, but here are my rules: I don’t want to be slimed, I don’t want to be chased, and I don’t want to be touched – like don’t make it so that some asshole creeps up on me from behind and puts their hand on my shoulder. Or else what? Or else I get violent. Like I will fight for my f-cking life and start swinging. They ended up cancelling me from that shoot. I feel like maybe they didn’t want to be sued.  

Anyway, while the Globes may not have invited Tiffany, it’s not like she’s not showing up everywhere else. Like Sesame Street: 

And The Daily Show with Trevor Noah:
