Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s Hilarious Opening Emmys Bit

Jimmy Kimmel's opening bit of last night's Emmys managed to celebrate numerous shows (including Kimmel's competition in the variety talk series, James Corden) and a surprise cameo that really nobody saw coming. Of all the parts we enjoyed (Jimmy dropping to his knees and praying to a heavenly Oprah was especially good), we were probably the  most tickled when Jimmy finally hitched a ride to the show on the back of Dany's dragon…then roasted Ryan Seacrest in the process.

Check out Kimmel's opening video here.

And here's Kimmel getting roasted by old pal Matt Damon for losing variety talk series to John Oliver.
