And The Award For Best Duo At The Oscars Goes To Tiffany Haddish And Maya Rudolph

It all started when they walked onstage, shoes in hand.

Well, it seems that Paul Thomas Anderson has very good taste in funny women.

“SNL” alum Maya Rudolph, the director’s wife, and “Girls Trip” star Tiffany Haddish, whom he’s said he wants to work with, presented together at Sunday night’s Oscars. Their chemistry was pure gold.

In fact, the ladies were so great together that people on Twitter immediately requested that they host the award show together next year.

Every other tweet in my timeline is people begging for Tiffany Haddish & Maya Rudolph to host next year and add me to the chorus.

Others wanted them to host the Golden Globes — just like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph should host the Golden Globes next year. #Oscars

Twitter users seemed to collectively fall head over heels for the pair as soon as they strutted onstage holding their shoes in their hands.

“I had to take my shoes off,” Rudolph said.

“Girl, me too,” Haddish followed up. “I’ve been wearing these shoes since 11 o’clock this morning.” She then asked Rudolph how long she had been wearing her heels.

“Since the Critics’ Choice Awards,” Rudolph quipped.

But the jokes didn’t end there. (You can watch their other cracks — about white people with clipboards and pinky toes falling off — in the clip above.)

But if you’re not completely convinced, here are all the other projects that people on Twitter want Haddish and Rudolph to do together.

Maya Rudolph and Tiffany Haddish appeared and I immediately screamed "Thelma and Louise reboot" at a stranger.

Any writer who didn't immediately sprint out of that auditorium to write Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph a buddy comedy is worth nOTHING

Wish there was a whole TV channel of just Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph ad libbing about everything in the world, all the time.

I know it's lazy to just be like "these two people onstage need to be in a movie together!!" but………Maya Rudolph and Tiffany Haddish really should be in a movie together. And a miniseries. And a TV show. And on a spoken word album.
