The regular segment on the US chat show sees celebrities forced to read out the most bitter criticisms of themselves made online, with past participants including Aaron Paul, Amy Poehler and Russell Brand.
This edition went right to the top of the Oscars nominations list, with Blanchett reciting: "Can people stop saying Cate Blanchett is beautiful? Cate Blanchett is f**ckin gross dude."
"I'm very much looking forward to the day when the world stops sucking george clooney's t**t. lumpy faced basterd" (sic) the Monuments Men lead was told meanwhile, with Cumberbatch getting the succinct: "Benedict Cumberbatch what a d**khead."
The most caustic abuse was saved for Matt Damon however, who read out the tweet 'Too bad they don't give an Oscar for blowing ass because Matt Damon would win every year. Go buy another zoo and live in it, Bourne I-d**khead. #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK' only to find it was sent from host Kimmel himself.
Other Monuments Men actors Bill Murray, John Goodman and Bob Balaban also featured in the clip, which was designed to "raise awareness and hopefully make people think twice before they post something awful."
