Jimmy Kimmel Refuses to Give Maggie Smith Her Emmy

Jimmy Kimmel set up a rule at the beginning of the 2016 Emmy Awards that if anyone wins and is not in attendance, they are not allowed to get their award… and it was all because of Maggie Smith.

The legendary actress has won three Emmys throughout her career, but she has never been at the show to accept the awards.

Well, Maggie won again this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category for her work on Downton Abbey.

After the win, Jimmy ran out on stage and announced that he will be putting the award into the “lost and found” and not be sending it to Maggie. Of course, it’s all a joke!

    You would hope it is a joke. But Maggie Smith would deserve this for not showing up to accept her award every time.
