Exclusive: Matt Damon Blames Oscars Flub on Host Jimmy Kimmel: 'They Got What They Paid For'

16 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As expected, Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel's "feud" lived on at the 89th Academy Awards.

While at Vanity Fair's Oscars after-party on Sunday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills, California, Damon spoke exclusively to Et's Carly Steel about what he thought of Kimmel hosting the awards ceremony, which ultimately ended with a major flub when La La Land was accidentally declared Best Picture instead of the actual winner, Moonlight.

"I was the one person who wasn't surprised that it all got screwed up," the 46-year-old actor quipped. "That's what they [get] for hiring Jimmy. You know, they got what they paid for."

Even before the Oscars, Kimmel was cracking jokes at Damon's expense. On Friday, he posted a photo of himself drawing a mustache on the Good Will Hunting star's seating card, along with the caption: "Best Picture Vominee [link=nm »

Jimmy Kimmel Keeps Matt Damon Feud Alive at Oscars: ‘He Has No Discernible Talent’

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The famous feud between Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon was alive and well at the Oscars on Sunday night with Kimmel clearly getting the better of it.

Kimmel used Damon as a punching bag even more than he did President Donald Trump, who wasn’t spared Kimmel’s barbs.

“Tonight, in spirit of healing and bringing people together, I would like to bury the hatchet with someone I’ve had issues with. I would. Matt Damon,” Kimmel said during his opening monologue. “I’ve known Matt for a long time now. I’ve known Matt so long, when I first met Matt, I was the fat one, okay? It’s true. And we’ve had problems. He’s a selfish person. Those of you who have worked with him know this.”

Funny or Die Recognizes ‘Manchester By the Sea’ and Its Mind-Blowing Visual Effects — Watch

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Visual Effects (VFX) artists are spectacular. Their intense discipline for creating seamless digital worlds tricks viewers into believing that what they’re seeing is real. Last night at the 89th Academy Awards, the Oscar for Best Visual Effects went to Robert Legato, Adam Valdez, Andrew R. Jones and Dan Lemmon the VFX team behind “The Jungle Book.”

Funny or Die, always with great wit and swift action, wanted to pay “tribute” to a film that got snubbed for a VFX nomination. This year, Funny or Die recognized Kenneth Lonergan’s Best Original Screenplay– and Best Actor–winning “Manchester By the Sea” for its fantastical visual effects. The team was able to craft the world of Manchester so beautifully, it actually looks as if Casey Affleck is there. If you really think about it, the VFX are so good, it’s like there aren’t any at all. »

Both Amazon And Netflix Won Their First Oscars This Year

18 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In the years since they have become major players in the annual Emmy race, both Netflix and Amazon have added films to their respective libraries in a shared attempt to crash the Oscars. Now, the two most prominent subscription video on-demand (Svod) platforms in the industry can both say they are Academy Award winners. At last night’s ceremony, the Amazon Studios-distributed drama Manchester By The Sea took home awards for its screenplay and acting, while the Netflix-affiliated short film The White Helmets was named the year’s best short subject documentary.

Manchester by the Sea had already made history by becoming the first Svod-distributed film to earn a Best Picture nomination, but victories for screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan and lead actor Casey Affleck cemented the film’s status as an Oscar winner. Amazon representatives who attended the Oscar ceremony were excited to see the film they worked on take home its statuettes, »

Oscar's iconic moment and all of the snubs and surprises from the 89th Academy Awards

Oscar's iconic moment and all of the snubs and surprises from the 89th Academy AwardsOscar's iconic moment and all of the snubs and surprises from the 89th Academy AwardsAdriana Floridia2/27/2017 11:21:00 Am

As crazy as that final moment from the 89th Academy Awards was last night, we need to celebrate.

Moonlight, a film made on a budget of 1.5 million dollars, about a gay black man struggling with his identity, is the first Lgbt film to win the Best Picture Oscar. It's also the first Best Picture winner with an all-black cast. Most importantly, its big Best Picture win will open many more opportunities for diverse film-making and the representation of minority voices.

We're still in shock and awe about how it all went down last night, in a major Oscars first. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to present the Best Picture winner, the most coveted award a movie can win, »

Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight,' Warren Beatty and the Perfect Hollywood Ending

19 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Forget it, Jake – it's La La Land.

No wait, sorry, there's been a mistake. it's Moonlight! Our bad.

What a glorious only-in-Hollywood fiasco, and what a sublimely insane ending to an Oscar night for the ages. It was just like the end of Bonnie and Clyde: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway bask in each others' glow, there's suddenly an awkward silence, they share a moment of doomed erotic eye contact ... and then oh, the carnage. The only thing missing was some sad banjo music. The Best Picture screw-up was »

Oscars best picture gaffe sends Academy into tailspin

Hollywood reacts to Oscars best picture gaffe

The 89th Academy Awards deliver surprises and eventually a “Moonlight” upset

27 February 2017 12:03 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

That’s all she wrote folks. The Oscars have now come and gone, just a few hours ago, with a finish unlike any other. We saw chaos at the very end, upsets at the beginning, and love spread around to a large amount of the nominees. Obviously, the big deal is Moonlight upsetting La La Land in Best Picture, after the award was mistakenly announced by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. That will be tackled more below, but I’m still kind of in shock over it. Almost everything felt a bit off from the get go, though up until the end, the actual production was one of their better ones. Choosing to open with a song performance was a stroke of genius, ethics’s top notch host, etc. Then, the surprises and upsets kept on coming. It’s an Academy Awards ceremony for the ages, no doubt about that. »

89th Oscar Winners – Moonlight Takes Home Best Picture

26 February 2017 11:40 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In one of the biggest shocks in Academy Awards history, the final award of the night, Best Picture, was mistakenly announced.

Moonlight won best picture at the 89th Oscars after La La Land was erroneously reported announced as the winner.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read La La Land right after Emma Stone won best actress for her role in the modern-day musical. After the cast took the stage, a producer for La La Land corrected things and said, “[Actually] ‘Moonlight’ is the winner … this is not a joke.”

The La Times exclusively spoke to best picture presenter Warren Beatty backstage after the history-making mistake that briefly awarded La La Land the honor instead of rightful winner Moonlight and the legendary director explained what happened onstage.

“I looked down at the card and thought, ‘This is very strange, because it says best actress.’ Maybe there was a misprint. I don’t know what happened. »

Casey Affleck Reveals His One Oscar Acceptance Speech Regret

26 February 2017 11:02 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With his new Academy Award in hand, Casey Affleck admits that his "heart sank" just moments after finishing his acceptance speech.

"I didn't thank my children, which is something I'll probably never, ever live down," Affleck told reporters backstage at the Oscars on Sunday. The 41-year-old star took home the award for Best Actor for his gut-wrenching role in Manchester by the Sea, beating out Denzel Washington, Andrew Garfield, Ryan Gosling and Viggo Mortensen for the honor.

"Three seconds after I left the stage, my phone rang and my son said, 'You didn't even mention us!' and my heart sank," Affleck said after his win. "That's probably the most significant thing I could have said."

Going into the Oscars, the question was which of two competing narratives would dominate the night.

The end result: a balance between the two, amid a disturbing gaffe as presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway pulled a “La La Land” card out of a red envelope. There was a mistake.

With eight nominations, “Moonlight” looked to be the likeliest film to unseat rival juggernaut “La La Land” for Best Picture and so it did, among three total Oscars.

“There were two cards.

The Oscars gave us the biggest shock ever, not only with “La La Land” being unseated but with the show announcing the wrong best picture winner. While everyone will be talking about it for years, there were some other surprises on Hollywood’s big night.
