Jimmy Kimmel wants Emmy to 'Consider' him too

Earlier today, I considered why no other entertainer had thought to parody Melissa Leo’s hilariously misguided, but ultimately effective Oscar ads. Well, it looks like our favorite celebrities were waiting for Emmy time to break out their considerable glamour. This morning, we pointed to Pee-Wee Herman’s Emmy-aimed lampoon for his HBO special, The Pee-Wee Herman Show; and now, the same day, we find the most-recent issue of Emmy Magazine, featuring Jimmy Kimmel’s own “Consider” ad that opts to poke fun at Leo’s awkward trying-to-cheat-while-looking-at-the-eye-chart pose. Special props to Kimmel, who eschewed Photoshop magic and squeezed into this sleek black number that only highlights his bedroom eyes. Consider us smitten. Will Emmy follow suit?

    “hilariously misguided, but ultimately effective”
    Actually, I would argue that she won the Oscars IN SPITE of the terrible ads, because a lot of people lost respect for her. Probably made the Oscar race a lot closer than it would have been had she not done those ads.

      I agree. I actually thought Amy Adams would pull ahead and end up winning.

  • chattypatra

    Love it! What a much needed laugh out loud moment. Thanks, Jimmy!

  • Tabbi

    The man looks good. Laughing and envious all at the same time.

  • Catherine

    I love it!!

  • ann

    He looks really good in that dress, doesn’t he?

  • Danny

    1. I love Jimmy.
    2. Amy Adams should have won.
    3. Melissa Leo is a good actress, but she wasn’t the best in the category.

  • Meli

    Okay, I don’t normally find Kimmel very funny, but that is VERY funny!

    I wanted Melissa Leo to win the Oscar until I saw those “Consider” ads…then I lost all interest in her. I just hate that kind of self-promotion. I know actors always try to brush off the Oscars and act like it’s no big deal, but we know deep down they really want it. And for Leo to be so blatant with those “Please vote for me!!” ads…it just put a bad taste in my mouth.

    My god get over the Melissa Leo ads already. She said she tried talk shows, magazines etc… But she couldn’t get on…..other nominees appeared on talk shows, magazines etc…basically asking to be “considered” and not a word was said about that….She did what she had to do to stay in the public eye….and it worked….I applaud her….and to the people who said they liked her until the ads…….Really? Are you that shallow?

      Thank you, Waynob. I can see the backlash but you pointed it out, the hard truth is that a woman her age has a harder time breaking out in press stuff so she needed something and was even taking some shots at how the Academy seems to go for the more glamarous type.

    Love this ad, and I also love Kimmel’s NBA pre-game shows that have been running before the finals. For those alone I hope he gets an Emmy nomination.
