As if losing to John Oliver at the Emmys wasn’t enough, Matt Damon appeared on stage for a comedic bit to taunt Jimmy Kimmel. 

Kimmel was nominated for Outstanding Variety Talk Series, but the win went to HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. “They knew,” Damon joked while eating an apple and pointing to the audience after the announcement. “I knew. I had him in my pool.” 

He later joked, “This is humiliating. You lost and now you have to stand out here for the rest of the night in front of everybody…when you probably just want to go home, curl up, and cry.” 

While Damon gave Kimmel a hug and pretended to invite him to an Emmys afterparty, he ended his appearance with a reference to his role in Good Will Hunting: “Oh! Hey, Jimmy. Tell your mom I liked dem apples.”
