Jimmy Kimmel’s concern seems valid. He couldn’t wrap his head around the fact that Matthew McConaughey was present at the Emmys.
Really, what would someone like McConaughey be doing at television awards?
As Kimmel put it, he doesn’t even have a television face but that of a movie star.
Kimmel was also quick to point out that he “happen(s) to know for a fact that he traded his television for a conch shell full of weed."
With Seth Meyers’ drab hosting, this probably is one of the funniest bits to come out of the Emmy Awards. Kimmel’s presence was a much-needed reprieve for the viewers as well as the audience.
