Jimmy Kimmel Pokes Fun at Matt Damon in Oscars 2017 Opening Monologue (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t help but mention his beef with Matt Damon during the opening monologue at the 2017 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood.

The late-night host has long pretended to hate Matt, who has also gone along with the ruse.

“I’d like to bury the hatchet with someone I’ve had issues with…When I first met Matt, I was the fat one,” Jimmy said. “We’ve had problems. He’s a selfish person. He could have starred in Manchester By the Sea…He made a Chinese ponytail movie [The Great Wall] instead. That movie went on to lose 80 million dollars.”

Jimmy Kimmel Is Thinking About Retirement

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel covers Variety‘s new issue!

Here’s what the 49-year-old talk show host had to share with the mag:

On the possibility of retirement in 2019: “I know I will do the show for another three years. It’s possible that will be it. My wife’s pregnant. At a certain point, I’d like to have a little more free time. I have very little free time as it is….I think this job is a grind, and best-case scenario, a marathon. I want to go out on my own terms. If I ever feel like we’re repeating ourselves, I think it’s a good indication that it’s time.”

On possibly not being the first choice of Oscars host: “I assumed there was a long list of people they asked before me…I fully interrogated [Oscars producers] Mike [de Luca] and Jennifer [Todd], and they swear it’s not true. If anyone was asked before me, my guess would be Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.”

On the tragic deaths in 2016: “One thing I can promise: This is going to be the greatest ‘In Memoriam’ in Oscar history. Kudos to God’s booker, because he or she really scored this year.”

Viola Davis Says It's Not Always Great Being the Oscar Favorite

Viola Davis is widely expected to win the Oscar for her performance in Fences, but she says it doesn’t always feel great to be the favorite in the category.

The 51-year-old actress talked about the awards recognition during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (February 16) in Hollywood.

“I’ve been the odds on favorite to win before and did not. It’s devastating; it makes it worse,” Viola said. “You’re sitting there and you’re like, ‘OK, I’m the odds-on favorite.’ And then your name is not called.”

“It’s like falling from a 100-story building…If you know you’re losing, it’s like falling from a one-story building,” she added.
