Comedian Sarah Silverman thanked her former boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel after receiving an Emmy for her song with Matt Damon. The video was made to be a joke where Silverman was singing about cheating on her then boyfriend, actor Kimmel.
"Let's be honest, Matt Damon had very little to do with this being popular," Silverman explained while receiving her award at the Creative Art Emmy Awards (airing September 20th). “I’m F----- Matt Damon."
Continuing her speech, SNL writer Silverman added, “Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart – oh, who'll always have a place in my heart.” Written for Jimmy Kimmel Live, it received two awards-best original music and lyrics as well as a picture-editing award.
Former boyfriend of 5 years, Kimmel and Ms Silverman split in July, before she was awarded her Emmys. The stars have not spoke publicly about their separation, but Ms Silverman did joke about it at a gig, stating, “Did somebody tell you I’m going through a hard time?”
With a smile on her face, Silverman thanked her co writers and humored the audience saying, "This makes all the, 'Hey, I'm f------ Matt Damon, too,' totally worth it."
