Rebel Wilson’s BAFTA 2020 speech: Radical Wilson was showing no mercy at today around evening time’s BAFTA Film Awards with a discourse that pierced the absence of assorted variety in the Best Director class… and her own movie Cats.
The entertainer, 39, jested that the Royal Albert Hall was known as the “Imperial Andrew Hall”, in a reasonable joke about William’s uncle Prince Andrew, who has been blamed for laying down with a 17-year-old young lady who was dealt by his pedophile companion Jeffrey Epstein, something he denies.
After she made the joke the camera panned to the imperial couple, who grinned clumsily.
Among different subjects she ridiculed was the coronavirus, sexism in the film business and the BAFTAs going eco-accommodating.
Presenting the award for Best Director, Wilson listed off the all-male nominees before adding, “I don’t think I could do what they do – honestly, I don’t have the balls.”
Sam Mendes went on to win the award for 1917, beating Martin Scorsese (The Irishman), Todd Phillips (Joker), Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood) and Bong Joon-Ho (Parasite).
Rebel started off: “Good evening distinguished guests and those who don’t identify as that. It is really great to be here at the Royal Andrew… Royal Harry… Royal Phillip… this royal palace place.
“I was just told backstage that no one’s getting a massive gift bag tonight, yep, instead you’re all getting a gifting wallet which is funny because that’s also the nickname of my vagina.
“So maybe it is me who will win best original score at the after party tonight.”
Rebel said: “Cats, strangely not nominated for any awards. I’m not sure if everyone here is across the controversy but this year there has been a distinct lack of nominations for felines.”
She then held the BAFTA in front of her mouth, saying: “What a great way to stop yourself from getting coronavirus.”
The speech had BAFTA viewers in stitches.
