Wilson opened her speech by saying, "It's really great to be here at the Royal Andrew.Royal Harry...no, um..."

She proceeded:"Sorry, I was told backstage that nobody's getting huge gift tote tonight". No, what you're all getting instead is a gifting wallet, which is amusing because that's also the nickname of my vagina.

The Australian actress Rebel Wilson took the opportunity to make fun at Prince Andrew, whose friendship with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has dragged the monarchy into another crisis.

Wilson's performance on the BAFTAs stage was warmly received among those in the room, with many claiming it to be the highlight of the entire ceremony.

She said the red dress was from when she lost the Miss Australia pageant, and that the black half was from "the funeral I went to for the feature film Cats".

"Wilson was among several celebrities in the cast of" Cats", that was widely panned before this season.

"Cats. Strangely not nominated for any awards". Wilson said she participated in sustainability efforts and noted that her own dress was made of recycled material. "BAFTA take this issue seriously, and following this year's nominations have launched a full review... to ensure the opportunities are available to everyone", the Duke of Cambridge said. Yep, even in this Best Director "cat"-egory, no felines have been nominated. At least I get to hold this BAFTA for a while - and wow, what a great way to stop yourself getting coronavirus".

In her hilarious speech, one of the standout moments of the evening, Wilson reeled off the names of the Best Director nominees - Sam Mendes, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips, Quentin Tarantino, and Bong Joon Ho - and joked about the fact that they are all men.
