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.
Kimmel also opened up about his objectives as Oscar host, revealing that he plans on continuing the pre-taped sketch tradition Billy Crystal pioneered years ago. He also said that lampooning President Donald Trump and mocking politics wasn't off the table, but that his jokes will depend "largely on what's going on that week."
"I would definitely make those decisions the day of or day before as to how much material I do and what my spin on it is," Kimmel said.
"Except for me throwing stuff at him, I don't anticipate [it]. He hasn't invited me, obviously," Damon joked. "I'm just sad Chris Rock isn't hosting the show, someone who's actually funny." Check out the video below to hear more.
