Presenters Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph added a little humor to this year's Oscars ceremony. Well, there's one actress that hit the Oscars carpet Sunday night in an ensemble that will do just that.

"My father is from Eritrea and he passed away past year", Haddish told Michael Strahan on the carpet before the show.

In a video captured by Variety's Elizabeth Wagmeister, Haddish can be heard yelling, "you're gonna be my momma!"

"This means everything to me and to be able to wear this dress and be able to represent my dad's country, Eritrean", Haddish told ET on the red carpet.

Girls Trip star Haddish made a couple pretty courageous fashion choices on the biggest night of the showbiz calendar.

However, the grand old party and the NPP, which are two major players, are optimistic about forming the government on their own. But all these could change today, depending on which party gets maximum public support to form government in the three states.

Tiffany Haddish showed up to the Oscars representing her Eritrean roots. We just came from backstage and there are tonnes of them back there. She vowed to wear it for every special occasion since.

Plus, it was the same $4,000 dress she'd already worn on the red carpet for the film's premiere.

"My whole team told me, 'Tiffany, you can not wear that dress on 'SNL,' you already wore it". Rudolph appeared to be barefoot and Haddish's brown, fuzzy slippers could be seen peeking out from under her white gown. I'm [going to] wear this dress multiple times.

During the opening monologue the night she hosted SNL (in the gown) she explained that it was $4,000 and it "cost way more than my mortgage". "I can't wait for them to see The Last O.G. and see Face Value and all these other shows that I've got coming and more movies where they can go, 'Wow, this girl is versatile".

HADDISH: I don't know, but it feels like I'm in a department store.
