Zing!

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson presented the award for outstanding lead actor in a miniseries (congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch) a this year’s Emmy Awards, and they bantered about how hot Matthew McConaughey is and Woody touched on something a little more scandalous as well.

He made mention of the recent claims of dialogue being plagiarized on HBO’s True Detective.

“I’m grateful you got all the plagiarized lines,” Harrelson joked to McConaughey. “Was that too inside?”

The first season of the series was directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga.
