Not even an Oscar nomination is enough to win Jimmy Kimmel’s respect, apparently. Like other late-night hosts, Kimmel covered Thursday’s announcement of Academy Award nominees on his show, but unlike his peers, Kimmel had a personal investment. Kimmel’s longtime friend and faux rival Matt Damon received a Best Actor nomination for his starring role in The Martian, and Kimmel did not waste the opportunity to mock him for it. 

Kimmel replayed John Krasinski’s reading of the Best Actor nominees, but replaced the picture of Damon with an unflattering shirtless shot before briefly pondering the future of their fake feud.
