THE 75TH EE BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS
The 75th EE British Academy Film Awards, aka BAFTAs 2022, are being held almost at the same time as the Critics Choice Awards 2022 . To be exact, four hours earlier. The highlight of the 75th BAFTAs hosted by Rebel Wilson took place at the Royal Albert Hall, London, England, last Sunday, March 13, 2022. This year is the first time the BAFTAs peak event has been held with full audience capacity since the Covid-19 pandemic.
In this 2022 BAFTAs event, Dune (2021) dominated by stealing five trophies from eleven nominations obtained. However, even so, the film starring Zendaya failed to win the two highest awards: Best Picture and Best Director. Which was won by The Power of the Dog (2021).
At the 2022 BAFTAs, The Power of the Dog star Benedict Cumberbatch is present with his wife, Sophie Hunter. While posing on the red carpet, he was seen wearing a Ukrainian flag pin over his black suit. According to the Doctor Strange (2016) star, we all need more than just wearing badges.
Besides Benedict Cumberbatch, several other celebrities also showed their sympathy for Ukraine which is being invaded by Russia. The 2022 BAFTAs event is indeed more open about the Ukraine and Russia wars. In fact, the Chairman of BAFTAs Krishnendu Majumdar opened the event with a message of support for Ukraine.
Despite showing support for Ukraine, which is currently at war with Russia, you could say that the 2022 BAFTAs took place in a relaxed manner. One of them, thanks to the hilarious appearance of Rebel Wilson. Which is the host for the first time in this British Oscars event.
When appearing on the stage at the 2022 BAFTAs, Rebel Wilson satirized many celebrities through his jokes. The first victim was JK Rowling. As we all already know: The author of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchise has touched on transgender people several times.
“I may look a little different from the last time you saw me here. That was me two years ago and after that I went through a lot of transformations. I hope JK Rowling still accepts it,” said Rebel Wilson on the BAFTAs 2022 stage. He discussed his body being 35 kg thinner while showing his photo while attending the 2020 BAFTAs event.
In addition to sarcastic JK Rowling, Rebel Wilson also touched on Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, on the BAFTAs 2022 stage. As we all know: The British couple had a horrendous interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March 2021. “From drama to fantasy, the Harry and Meghan interview by Oprah has it all. Unfortunately, it was not nominated in this event,” said Wilson.
In addition to Rebel Wilson, who also attracts attention at the 2022 BAFTAs is Lady Gaga. She appeared in an emerald green dress with a Ralph Lauren tail. Gaga completed the V-shape collared dress with a necklace and earrings set from Tiffany & Co.
Lady Gaga’s schedule on last Sunday (13/3) was, you could say, very busy. Because, in addition to attending the 2022 BAFTAs, four hours later, he also appeared at the 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards. Which was held at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, United States, and the Savoy Hotel, London, England. The House of Gucci (2021) star attended the event in London.
