Rebel Wilson pokes fun at the Royals, Cats, Coronavirus, Gender inequity and herself when presenting Best Director in the 2020 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards.
Good evening distinguished guests … and those that don’t identify as that.
It is really um great to be here at the Royal Andrew ah ah Royal Harry no Royal ah this Royal Palace place.
Sorry I was just told backstage that no one is getting a massive giftbag tonight. Yep um instead, you’re all get a gifting wallet, which is funny because that’s also the nickname of my vagina. So maybe it is me that will win best original score at the after party tonight.
Now as Graham was saying tonight is all about sustainability, so, so I made this dress by sewing two old dresses together. The red is from that one time I didn’t win Miss Australia and the black is from a funeral I just went to … for the feature film Cats.
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 nominations for felines. Yeah okay even in this Best Director Cat-agory, no felines have been nominated.
It’s really shocking, but at least I get to hold this BAFTA for a moment and wow what a great way to stop yourself from getting the coronavirus.
Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips, Quentin Tarantino, Bong Joon Ho. I look at the exceptional, daring talent nominated in this category and I don’t think I could do what they do. Honestly I just don’t have the balls.
