Kimmel will try to keep Damon off Oscars’ stage
Los Angeles, Feb 22 (IANS) Jimmy Kimmel, who will be hosting the Oscars ceremony this year, doesn’t want actor Matt Damon to sabotage his hosting stint.
Kimmel and Damon are known for their hilarious made-for-TV feud, but for the 89th Academy Awards, Kimmel would try his best to keep Damon from stealing the spotlight.
“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that he doesn’t win or doesn’t know that he won. My goal is to keep him offstage,” Kimmel told hollywoodreporter.com.
In another interview, Kimmel said: “I’m gonna hit him over the head with the Oscar.”
Damon is nominated as a producer for “Manchester by the Sea”.
“Listen, there are certain people who are winners and there are certain people that aren’t. I put Matt in the latter category. I don’t see him getting his grubby, overly moisturised little hands on an Oscar on Sunday night. And if he does, I’ll be heartsick,” Kimmel added.
