Sunday night’s Emmy Awards (September 18th) weren’t without their fair share of emotional, dramatic, and entertaining moments.

Scattered among them were Jimmy Kimmel’s hilarious jokes as host of the event, who, adorably, got help writing his material from his 2-year-old daughter Jane.

While Kimmel made his usual digs at Matt Damon, the TV funnyman, who lost out on the Emmy for Variety Talk Series to HBO’s John Oliver, also picked on Donald Trump, and…Dame Maggie Smith.

Yep, Jimmy Kimmel decided to go in on Maggie Smith, who, despite being nominated for nine Emmys (and winning three), has never been to the ceremony.

In his opening speech, Kimmel said that they were changing the rules for the Emmys this year.

Of course, Maggie Smith went on to win the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama series for her role of the Dowager Countess in Downton Abbey and Kimmel had this hilarious response.

This war of words was to be won, of course, by Dame Maggie Smith.
