Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Final Oscars Joke He Was Supposed to Do After Best Picture

Jimmy Kimmel had a big joke planned for the end of the 2017 Oscars, but the Best Picture fail got in the way and we never got to see what was in store.

“The plan was the Best Picture is announced; they make a speech,” Jimmy said on The Bill Simmons Podcast. “I was assuming the Best Picture was not going to be ‘Manchester by the Sea.’ And I said to Matt [Damon], ‘If it’s not ‘Manchester by the Sea,’ I’m gonna be sitting next to you. This will be my revenge for the Emmys.’”

“Because at the Emmys, he walked onstage after we lost our category. So I’d be sitting next to him, and it would start on me, and I’d start wrapping the show up. The camera would widen, we’d see Matt was sitting next to me, and I would say, ‘Wow, unbelievable, Casey won and Kenneth won and really only one person didn’t win tonight, and it’s you for this movie.’ It would have been a nice little button to the whole night,” Jimmy continued.

Ben Affleck & ‘Guest’ Matt Damon Present at Oscars 2017, Matt Gets Played Off by Jimmy Kimmel

It looks like Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel‘s feud will never end – in fact, Jimmy maybe just took their battle to the next level.

While Ben Affleck and Matt were stepping on stage to present at the 2017 Oscars, the announcer said, “Please welcome two-time Academy Award winner Ben Affleck—and guest.”

Matt couldn’t believe he was announced as “guest.” Then, Ben got a chance to speak, but every time Matt tried to speak, the music became so loud as to try and get him off stage ASAP. Turns out, Jimmy was conducting the orchestra to lead him off stage. LOL! Watch below.

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.”
