Rebel Wilson made a shocking jibe at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey as she hosted the BAFTA Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.

The Australian actress, 42, said the special, which aired on CBS in the United States on ITV in the UK in March last year, had everything from ‘drama to fantasy’ but was ‘unfortunately’ not nominated in the Outstanding British Film category at this year’s BAFTAs. 

Introducing the nominations, Rebel said: ‘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.’

Harry, 37, and Meghan’s interview – which was nominated for a 2021 Television Critics Award, a Primetime Emmy Award, and a People’s Choice Award – was broadcast a year after they announced they were stepping down as working members of the royal family in January 2020.

The couple discussed their courtship and wedding, the sex of daughter Lilibet, who was born in June last year, Meghan’s suicidal thoughts, and their feelings of emotional and financial abandonment by the royal family. 

Meghan, 40, also said comments had been made privately to Harry by someone within the royal family in relation to the skin colour of their then unborn son Archie, now two.

They also spoke of a royal title for Archie, the couple’s personal security, and Harry’s estrangement from his father Prince Charles, 73, and brother Prince William, 39, as well as Meghan’s relationship with her estranged family.

Rebel also made a dig at Prince Andrew, Duke of York, 62, who made a reference to restaurant chain Pizza Express during his 2019 Newsnight interview as part of an alibi about the day he is alleged to have slept with his teenage sex accuser Virginia Roberts who said she was trafficked to London by the prince’s paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein when she was just 17.  

In the interview with Emily Maitlis, Andrew denied having sex with Miss Roberts at Miss Maxwell’s home.

He said it could not have happened because he spent the day with his daughter, Princess Beatrice.

During the BAFTA ceremony, 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.  

‘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 politically charged show returned after a two-year delay with Rebel giving Vladmir Putin the middle finger, while many of the stars wore black and Ukraine ribbons in a mark of solidarity.

Rebel made reference to Russia’s invasion during the ceremony and was applauded by the star-studded audience when she made a rude hand gesture to Putin to the camera as she introduced a performance with sign language interpreters.  

The actress said: ‘In this performance there are two different interpreters one is signing America Sign Language and one is signing British Sign Language. 

‘Luckily though, in all sign languages this is the gesture for Putin,’ before putting her middle finger up for the camera.’  

Dune dominated the British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday night, while The Power Of The Dog took home Best Film.

The science fiction movie swept the board as it scooped five out of its eleven nominations for the 75th ceremony which saw diversity triumph, with Lashana Lynch taking home Rising Star, deaf actor Troy Kotsur awarded Supporting Actor and West Side Story’s Ariana Debose accepting the Supporting Actress gong. 

Joanna Scanlan, 60, won the Leading Actress award for her performance in the Aleem Khan-directed drama After Love and Will Smith, 53, won the Leading Actor gong for his role in King Richard.

The politically charged show returned after a two-year delay with host Rebel Wilson giving Vladmir Putin the middle finger, while many of the stars wore black and Ukraine ribbons in a mark of solidarity.

Dune was awarded Special Visual Effects, Sound, Production Design, Cinematography and Original Score.

The first of a two-part adaptation of the 1965 science fiction novel by Frank Herbert, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was presented the Best Cinematography Award by Naomi Campbell and Ru-Paul.

Hans Zimmer was once again recognised in the Original Score category after battling it out against Being The Ricardos, Don’t Look Up, The French Dispatch and The Power of the Dog.

However, Dune lost out on the Best Film gong to the gritty Western movie The Power of the Dog. Director Jane Campion couldn’t attend the ceremony and so producer Tanya Seghatchian accepted it on her behalf.

Leading Actress Joanna admitted to being overwhelmed by her success when she took to the stage. 

Joanna faced competition from Lady Gaga, Alana Haim, Emilia Jones, Tessa Thompson and Renate Reinsve for the award.

But she explained on stage that the film – which tells the story of a widow who discovers her late husband’s secret family – was made with ‘blood, sweat and tears’.

Earlier in the night, Will Smith won the Leading Actor gong for his role in ‘King Richard’. The Hollywood star played the part of Richard Williams – the dad of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams – in the hit film.

The success marked the first BAFTA win of Will’s career, but he wasn’t able to attend the ceremony in London.

After vows from organisers to improve diversity among the stars being nominated, the ceremony saw the likes of Bond star Lashana take to the stage, hailing her working class background after winning the Rising Star award.

The actress, 34, portrayed MI6 agent Nomi inJames Bond’s No Time to Die.

She said: ‘Thank you everyone who voted. Wow thank you everyone involved in No Time To Die, my career, my parents, my grandparents who came from Jamaica – the Windrush generation. I am thankful for them for my existence.

‘I am proud to come from a working class family, I have been taught about failure, about no’s and how to celebrate your yeses. Now I get to celebrate a yes, I never expected.

‘I want to thank the women who taught me how to be in this industry as a dark skinned women. Thank you for laying the foundations for people like me. I appreciate it. Thank you.’

And No Time To Die was a big winner on the night with Tom Cross and Elliot Graham winning Best Editing, beating Belfast, Dune, Licorice Pizza and Summer of Soul (Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised).

Ariana DeBose was awarded the gong for Best Supporting Actress in West Side Story. The 31-year-old portrayed Anita in the adaptation of the 1957 musical. West Side Story also scooped Best Casting with Cindy Tolan.

The actress was against tough competition in the category as she went head-to head with Caitríona Balfe (Belfast), Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter), Ann Dowd (Mass), Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard) and Ruth Negga (Passing).

Ariana said her win for best supporting actress in West Side Story is ‘the wildest ride of my life’ but she is ‘thrilled’ to see diversity at the London ceremony.

Speaking backstage after her win, DeBose said: ‘Go in and show them what you have to offer, you are absolutely worthy, that is what this experience has taught me. It has been the wildest ride of my life and getting wilder every day.’
