Best Actor Oscar nominee Matthew McConaughey sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night, and was put on the spot about how he would top his drawling "All right, all right, all right" Golden Globes acceptance speech in the event he also wins the Oscar (Kimmel is convinced this is case; we at TOH! also have McConaughey slotted as the frontrunner.)

Best Actor Oscar nominee Matthew McConaughey sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night, and was put on the spot about how he would top his drawling "All right, all right, all right" Golden Globes acceptance speech in the event he also wins the Oscar (Kimmel is convinced this is case; we at TOH! also have McConaughey slotted as the frontrunner.) Watch below.

In terms of the slew of "all rights," McConaughey says he might as well stick with that formula for the Academy Awards: "First three words I ever said on film," he tells Kimmel, referring to Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused."

He also talks his alarming weight loss to play Ron Woodruff in "Dallas Buyers Club," and his on-set vibe with co-lead Woody Harrelson in HBO's "True Detective."
