As it turns out, the 32-year-old actress didn’t really feel a way about it at all; however, she says,  “Tomorrow maybe I’ll be mad at him, she joked.


“I’m going to be on his show on Wednesday, so I might punch him in the face. I don’t know what happens.”

Brunson went on to call Kimmel, 54, “one of the comedy godfathers,” adding that she was “really happy” that he presented her award.
