Sarah Silverman thanked her ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel when picking up her Creative Arts Emmy award, despite receiving the gong for a song about cheating on him with Matt Damon.
The comedienne split with the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host in July (08) after a five-year relationship, during which she recorded a comedy music video for his TV talk show entitled I'm F**king Matt Damon.
The video, performed as a joke with Good Will Hunting star Damon, scooped two awards at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday (13Aug08), winning best original music and lyrics and a picture-editing gong.
On collecting her award, Silverman, 37, joked, "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."
Silverman didn't forget to thank the song's star, Damon, but joked that he only played a minor role in the video's success.
She added: "I'm going to be honest, (he) had very little to do with this being this popular."
