Sarah Silverman’s infamous “I’m F—- Matt Damon” music video, a hilarious and raunchy dedication to her ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel, has not only been viewed almost 4.5 million times on YouTube, it has also racked up an Emmy Award win over the weekend.
Silverman was quick to point out that, of course, Damon’s star power had little to do with the success. It’s all about Sarah’s songwriting, isn’t it?
Sarah Silverman may have won an Emmy award for a song boasting of a romance with Matt Damon, but it was her ex-boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, whom the comedian thanked from the stage.
“Let’s be honest, Matt Damon had very little to do with this being popular,” Silverman, 37, said while accepting her award at the Creative Arts Emmys for the salty music video “I’m F—— Matt Damon” at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
“Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart – ohh, who’ll always have a place in my heart,” Silverman continued.
