Sarah Silverman nabs Emmy for "fucking Matt Damon"
Accepting her award for outstanding original music and lyrics at the 2008 Creative Emmy Awards, Sarah Silverman gushed onstage, "Oh my gosh...this makes a year of [catcall voice] 'I'm fucking Matt Damon too!' totally worth it. Matt Damon, I'm going to be honest, had very little to do with this being popular. And the person for who this video was made, Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart, oops... who... will always have a place in my heart."Aw, shucks. It's sort of sad to think the couple that inspired the video mega hit, "I'm Fucking Matt Damon," are no longer together. But also totally awesome that the video, which Silverman presented to Jimmy Kimmel on his talk show, got some Emmy love.
The pre-taped awards ceremony will air on E! on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 8pm.
