Jimmy Kimmel‘s show is really one big feud with Matt Damon. In case you’re not up to date, they are arguing because Matt is never a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. During The Ellen Show, Jimmy opened about the feud and Matt’s chances at the Oscars.
The feud started years ago when Jimmy’s show didn’t have big ratings. And all of a sudden, he dropped Matt Damon’s name at the end of a show, saying they ran out of time and he cannot be a guest that night. The idea stuck and they have been feuding ever since.
Now Jimmy will be hosting the Academy Award ceremony for the first time, he shared with Ellen DeGeneres that he doesn’t think Matt has a lot of chances at the Oscars. Only nominated for producer this year for Manchester By the Sea, Jimmy joked that they will be giving him an award for not starring in the movie.
Matt also was on Ellen’s show a few days ago, and he said:
“…there’s going to be hundreds of millions of people watching and hoping that [Jimmy Kimmel] messes up. I’m going to be there a few rows deep hoping that he messes up. I might even throw things at him.”
Jimmy also shared a picture on his Instagram account, mocking his seat card at the Oscars.
