"It's been a year of firsts for black people," Haddish said in her opening monologue. "I'm the first black woman to host the MTV Movie and TV Awards, 'Black Panther' is the first African American movie to make $1 billion, and 'A Quiet Place' is the first film to scare black people out of talking in movie theaters."
Haddish also summed up the general appeal of the awards show: "I'm glad this show covers both TV and Movies because now I get to flirt with Chris Pratt from 'Parks and Recreation' and Chris Pratt from 'Guardians of the Galaxy,'" she said. "Hey, Chris. I got a galaxy you can guard."
