Seth Meyers may have just prompted what could just be the most hilarious showdown to ever grace award show history between Ricky Gervais and Louis C. K.

While asking about Gervais' recent Emmy award nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, Seth Meyers stumbled onto the topic of Louis C.K who is also, wait for it, nominated for the exact same category.

"One of the other people… this time, you're nominated against your friend Louis C.K…" Meyers began before asking, "Before his show - you put him in a movie, you put him in an HBO, and has he ever, sort of, thanked you for all the work you've done for him?"

It was clear that Gervais had never really thought about this beforehand, because the realization that dawned on Gervais' face was obvious, especially when he responded with, "No! I discovered that big, sweaty slob!"

"I've done everything for him I haven't I? I was even in his show - I had to give him a rectal exam!" Gervais exclaimed, adding afterwards, "Ugh, I had to see his freckly ass and everything… and he's never thanked me. And now he's trying to take my award."

Gervais is nominated for his Netflix's series Derek, while C. K. is nominated for FX's Louie. How the showdown at the Emmys for the Best Actor in a Comedy Series category will go is anyone's guess. With a pair like Louis C. K. and Ricky Gervais, anything is a possibility.
