Is Jimmy Kimmel's Roasting Of Matt Damon Getting Old?

Nah.  Well maybe a little bit.  But still I laugh. Perhaps because it's becoming that uncomfortable.

Here's all I have to say about that.

  1. Kimmel did a great job, I thought, hosting the Oscars.  Not an easy job, and not a job I'd ever want, but he made it look effortless and it was pretty seamless, except for the announcement of the WRONG film for best picture, of course, (I thought Warren Beatty was either having a super senior moment or had forgotten his glasses). But that wasn't Kimmel's fault.  Overall, he was funny and made us all a little uncomfortable at times, which is exactly his job.  Then he topped it off with bringing in people off the street and making it rain Junior Mints.  Ok. Kimmel did well.  Check.
  2. I love seeing how Matt Damon handles all of the roasting Jimmy does to him.  He's a target for sure.  It's a joke that seems to never get old (ok maybe it's starting to), but really, Matt is truly such a good sport. Right from the very start of the show..."I've known Matt a long time now, in fact so long that when I first met Matt I was the fat one"  O U C H !
  3. I had no idea Matt was a whole foot shorter than his old Cambridge pal Ben Affleck!  (Oh dear here I go, jumping right on the roasting band wagon- maybe it's just as simple as him being an easy target?)

Cue in to 1:36 for the Matt Damon jabs.

Mean Tweets - Oscars Edition

The Oscars are a celebration of the movies and those who lift others up, but we must also not forget those who push those same people down. They are internet trolls who keep celebrities grounded day after day, night after night. We acknowledge them with this special #Oscars Edition of #MeanTweets featuring Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Samuel L.
