Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel Emmys Video: Host Mocked For Losing At Emmy Awards
As Gossip Cop noted earlier, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was nominated for Outstanding Variety Talk Show. In advance of the ceremony, the host repeatedly insisted that he didn’t care if they lost. Well, as it turns out, he cared very much.
And after “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” won the award, Matt Damon surprised Kimmel on stage to rub salt in his wound. “You must be really bummed out,” he deadpanned. “So, you’re not gonna get a trophy?”
Damon went on, “This is so humiliating. I’m sorry. You lost, and now you gotta stand out here for the rest of the night in front of everybody… when you probably just wanna go home and curl up and cry. Can we cheer Jimmy up? He’s a big loser!”
Making matters worse, a dejected Kimmel was unaware of the after-party, and, after she gave out food earlier in the show, Damon cracked, “Tell your mom I like dem apples.” Kimmel replied, “Good one, Jason Borning.” Of course, Damon and Kimmel are real-life friends who have long pretended to be enemies.
