Rebel Wilson Pokes Fun At Prince Harry And Meghan's Oprah Interview

BAFTAs host Rebel Wilson had a host of jokes up her sleeve during the
awards ceremony on Sunday night. And one famous couple who she couldn’t resist
poking fun at was Prince Harry and Meghan.

The Australian actress was announcing the nominees for the Outstanding
British Film category when she said: “Our next package is for Outstanding
British Film.”

She then quipped: “From drama to fantasy, Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview had
it all… Unfortunately, that’s not nominated in this category, but some
incredible films are. Let’s take a look at some of the most outstanding British
films this year.”

The camera panned to Emma Watson, who appeared to cringe at the
joke before the nominations flashed up on the screen: After Love, Ali &
Ava, Belfast, Boiling Point, Cyrano, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, House of
Gucci, Last Night in Soho, No Time to Die, and Passing. Belfast was
crowned the winner.

Rebel also made a cheeky dig at Prince Andrew, who famously made a
reference to Pizza Express during his 2019 Newsnight interview.

Ahead of the Special Visual Effects award being announced, Rebel said:
“So I was going to do a musical number as host, it was about Prince Andrew
though. Um, no guys, it’s no, it’s not what you think.”

To laughter, she added: “It was on roller skates, it’s called Pizza
Express. But don’t worry, I’m not gonna do it, I’m not gonna sing. I’m saving
my voice for the sequel to Cats.”

The Pitch Perfect actress looked sensational on the night,
choosing to walk the red carpet in a dramatic tulle dress with blue sequin
embellishment. She then changed into a figure-hugging red sequinned gown for
her hosting duties.

Prince William and Kate usually attend the BAFTAs but were noticeably
absent at Sunday’s event at the Royal Albert Hall. Royal fans and viewers at
home may have been wondering where the Cambridges were, but Kensington Palace
previously announced on Thursday that the couple would not be able to attend
the awards due to “diary constraints”.
