Jimmy Kimmel will not let Matt Damon come near Oscar's stage

They only signed on in November, leaving little time for the preparation involved in putting together this mammoth production.

"However you want to look at it, I would like him to go home with nothing", Kimmel concluded.

In less than a week, Jimmy Kimmel will host what many anticipate to be the most political Academy Awards in recent memory.

Norman prep PG Trae Young announces he'll play for Oklahoma
Young is coach Lon Kruger's biggest catch - Buddy Hield wasn't almost as highly recruited coming out of high school. I built a lot of trust with all these coaches. "The recruiting process has been very long and very tough".

Kimmel spoke with The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published on Monday, and the late night talk show host was asked about the possibility of Manchester by the Sea - which Damon produced - winning Best Picture.

The late-night landscape has dramatically changed since Kimmel started, with Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert duking it out in the ratings race.

The tone of the Variety story and Kimmel's comments make it sound like his decision to leave has already been made, but it should still be noted that he hasn't formally announced that he's leaving the show in 2019, even though it seems like he will. "You're a pretty big loser and I, for one, am really sorry about that and I think everybody else here feels really sorry for you". He has hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards twice and the American Music Awards four times.

"When I do watch, it's for pleasure", he said. But the velvet-toned Oscar champ ("Million Dollar Baby", 2004) makes merry with his copy, much to Kimmel's chagrin, as seen in the sassy promotional spot above. "I will not relent until they are out of show business".

"Except for me throwing stuff at him, I don't anticipate [it]". ABC, which is the network airing the Oscars, will be live from the red carpet beginning an hour before the ceremony, at 7:00 p.m. EST.
