Tiffany Haddish arrived backstage resplendent in a custom-made rainbow-striped dress inspired by the colors of the Eritrean flag, an homage to her late father's heritage. ("This is the only one that's out there right now," she said. "This is an original.")
"Hi everybody," she greeted the crowd of journalists.
Haddish was announced as the winner of the guest actress in a comedy series award last week at the Creative Arts Emmys for her "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig.

For the first time ever, Netflix amassed the most Emmy nominations with 112 compared with HBO’s 108. However, the latter put up a good fight at the Creative Arts Emmy awards, winning 17 compared with Netflix’s 16.
