Tiffany Haddish led an African-American sweep of Emmy Awards for TV series guest actors, a landmark moment in the entertainment industry’s effort to foster diversity.

Haddish was honored at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys for hosting “Saturday Night Live,” while Katt Williams won the guest comedy actor award for “Atlanta.” Haddish, a well-requested actress since her breakout performance in the movie “Girls Trip,” has been an Oscar presenter and MTV Movie & TV Awards host. She co-stars in the sitcom “The Last O.G.” She was a no-show at the Emmys, but presenter Tichina Arnold had fun accepting for her.

“Tiffany couldn’t be here tonight. But, guess what, Tiffany! I’ve got your award, girl!” Arnold said, holding up the statuette triumphantly. “I think you’re going to have to give that back,” presenter Gerald McRaney (“This Is Us”) teased her.
