Sunday night marked the 2021 Grammy awards, where many winners and emotional moments were shared.
Tiffany Haddish had found out she won the award for Best Comedy Album while on set for her CBS Show, Kids Say the Darndest Things. She shared an emotional video of her hearing for the first time that she won, and it couldn't have been a sweeter reaction.
The 41-year-old comedian won the Grammy for her comedy album, Black Mitzvah. She had taken this success by beating out many other known comedians including Jerry Seinfeld, Patton Oswalt, Bill Burr and Jim Gaffigan.
This is the first time a black WomAn had won in the Best Comedy Album Category since 1986, when Whoopi Goldberg won.
Her reaction came from a video she posted to twitter. Haddish was repeating the lines she was fed from the producers while speaking to two little girls on the set. She was crying with joy after hearing the news and continued explaining to the children why it was so emotional for her.

In disbelief, Haddish had said "I just won a GRAMMY? Are you serious?" Following with tears of joy she shared why it meant so much for her to win.
"Can I tell you why I'm crying? It's a lot of bumpy roads that you cross, right, and it's a lot of times you feel like, 'Well, am i doing the right thing? is this really good enough? am I good enough? Am I strong enough to do this job?"
She continued on to encourage the kids "to believe in yourself as much as you can."
"Against all odds, you know what, you just say, 'I'm gonna put my best foot forward, and I'm gonna give the world the best that I got,' right? Anything is possible."
An emotional and powerful moment for the Girls Trip actress. Congrats Tiffany, well deserved!
