Two things happened at the BAFTAs last night that made everyone present whisper “Well, I wasn’t expecting that to happen” to person sitting beside them. The first one was that Leonardo DiCaprio put his mouth on a woman 56 years older than his usual bone by date. The second one was that Rebel Wilson came out as a proud member of #OscarsWhoGivesAFuck.
Before she presented the award for Best Supporting Actor, Fat Amy pulled out a piece of paper and gave a sarcasm-dipped statement about how it’s so great to be here “at this very serious event” (the Coen Brothers just fell in love), adding that she’s never been invited to the Oscars, because “they are racist.” She also made a joke about “transgendered face” and getting the vapors for Idris Elba because she’s sociologically programmed to “want chocolate on Valentine’s Day.” I’m pretty sure that’s an Internet Outrage Bingo?
On a scale from Charlotte Rampling to Emma Thompson, I guess Rebel’s speech falls somewhere between…I’m not sure, really. I still don’t know what she was trying to say, but that’s my fault. I got distracted by that “diverse members” comment, and my brain hasn’t been able to focus anything but the mental image of a well-stocked dick buffet ever since.
Here’s more of Rebel wearing some kind of church choir director mullet dress at the BAFTAs last night.
