After a list of thank yous, including those that Robbie glossed over when she noted: "He goes on to thank you again, blah blah blah - it's a bit much really", she moved on to Pitt's Megxit amusing. The twice-awarded actor of the Golden Globe drew attention once again with his speech at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards on Sunday night, February 2 in London.
Cape Town - Brad Pitt missed the BAFTAs over the weekend - but he still made a memorable appearance when his costar Margot Robbie accepted his Best Supporting Actor award for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
"Brad couldn't be here tonight because of family obligations, so he asked me to read his answer for him", the Australian actress said on stage.
"He starts by saying, 'Hey Britain". I heard you just let go. Welcome to the club, "he began, referring to the UK's departure from the European Union on Friday". She pointed out: "His words are not mine". And while the actor wasn't in attendance at the awards ceremony, the crowd was treated to another hilarious acceptance speech.
Margot delivered Brad's funny speech
When Prince William, that has been the BAFTA president for 10 years, provided movie producer Kathleen Kennedy utilizing the Fellowship honor, he talked about their disappointment that there was clearly small variety among the list of nominees. "We mean to measure back as'mature' members of their Royal Family and also work to become financially independent while continuing to fully encourage Her Majesty The Queen".
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, 38, have been hiding out in a Vancouver Island mansion with son Archie as they hash out the details of their new life away from the palace.
Once upon a time in Hollywood, this happened - Brad Pitt included a joke about Prince Harry quitting his role as a royal in his BAFTA acceptance speech and those who chuckled in the audience included Prince William and Kate Middleton.
It's the first time William and Middleton have publicly acknowledged Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to leave their home in the United Kingdom as part of their "step back" from the royal family.
