    This could've been such an interesting conversation and interview but it seemed that Jimmy just literally didn't do his homework and had nothing to ask Omar that is truly personal - he made a conversation about American culture rather than about Omar's incredible talent...

    Omar grew up in the ghetto close to Paris , He worked a lot and became the famous comic in France 🇫🇷 in the 2000's (Omar & Fred, etc ), acting in dozens of movies. He gained fame abroad with the 2011 comedy-drama film The Intouchables, which earned him the César Award for Best Actor. Sy became the first Black recipient of the award. He is an inspiration for all young people in France who wish to succeed. Omar you are my guy !

    Y'all in the comments need to chill a bit yo. Jimmy calls the award the "french equivalent" 'cause he knows that his viewership might not know the value and he talks a lot about America because people think it was a big thing for Omar so they wanna know about it.

    you wants some french shows here you go: -Les revenants ( old but gold) -Le bureau des légendes (really good) -Baron noir (so good) -Les sauvages ( I saw this one years ago and its really good, still waiting for a season 2 tho) -Kaamelott ( it's a really funny serie which is really iconic in France) -Hippocrates ( this serie takes place in an hospital I never watch it but I heard good things about it so give it a try if you want) -Braquo ( good too) - Mafiosa -Engrenages -Un village français -Le visiteur du futur (available on youtube with english subtitles, it was made by youtubers and it's iconic) - Bloqué ( shorts but really funny episodes, available on youtube but I don't think there's subtitles, idk, an iconic serie) There's many more but here is the one I remembered and watched :))

    Really stop watching hosts in America. Kimmel , Fallon , Ellen ,Wendy , Oprah they are all stupid and so insecure about themselves and selfish. Just stop watching whatever they're doing and giving them money. If you listen closely what they say is not interesting at all.

    This was an awful interview. What a waste of time to spend the first half asking about American TV shows. At the very least, the interview should have been about working on Lupin and the French tv and film industry. And calling the César Award “the French version of the Oscar” is intellectual laziness and arrogance at its finest. The Jimmy Kimmel Show clearly needs diversity in its production team. This was beyond embarrassing to watch!!!

    Why y’all so mad about him saying the French equivalent of the Oscars. He is putting the magnitude of that award into perspective for people who would otherwise not know what the award is. He is after still talking to a mostly American audience and most normal American people know about the magnitude of the oscars it’s a fair comparison. It’s literally not a bad thing.

    Omar Sy saïd that in France, it was too easy for him. People used to send him script without asking him to do a casting. He said he wanted to try hollywood show-business because it was refreshing for him to have to win a role, he wanted to start again.

    Regular people watch whatever they want via YT, piracy, TV, cinemas, etc. That goes for Netflix users as well, but they don't need Netflix to open themselves up to new cultures and languages. I was drawn to French cinema since being a teenager and I hardly ever regret watching a French movie. The reason why Kimmel finds Lupin a surprise is because of a lifetime of conditioning of superiority, that you're living in the greatest country on earth, so why would you look at shows and movies from other countries with subtitles when you're the greatest country on earth? There are no borders to what people find interesting and I would've offed myself a long time ago if I were only limited to the TV and films made in my own country. Watch movies made in the Middle East like About Elly, A Separation or Capernaum and maybe you'll have less of an inclination to bomb them. Just a thought.
