Visual Effects Society Slams the Oscars for That 'Cats' Moment

James Corden and Rebel Wilson appeared on stage in costume as their Cats characters and skewered their movie while presenting at the 2020 Oscars.

The co-stars presented the award for Best Visual Effects and joked, “As cast members of the motion picture Cats, nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects.”

As you’re probably aware, the movie Cats was critically panned and a lot of the criticism had to do with the visual effects.

Now, the Visual Effects Society is slamming the Oscars for that whole bit.

“Last night, in presenting the Academy Award for Outstanding Visual Effects, the producers chose to make visual effects the punchline, and suggested that bad VFX were to blame for the poor performance of the movie Cats. The best visual effects in the world will not compensate for a story told badly,” the organization said in a statement.

“On a night that is all about honoring the work of talented artists, it is immensely disappointing that The Academy made visual effects the butt of a joke. It demeaned the global community of expert VFX practitioners doing outstanding, challenging and visually stunning work to achieve the filmmakers’ vision,” the statement continued.

“Our artists, technicians and innovators deserve respect for their remarkable contributions to filmed entertainment, and should not be presented as the all-too-convenient scapegoat in service for a laugh,” the society added. “Moving forward, we hope that The Academy will properly honor the craft of visual effects – and all of the crafts, including cinematography and film editing – because we all deserve it.”

Rebel Wilson Makes Prince Andrew Reference In Front of Prince William & Duchess Kate, Roasts 'Cats' at BAFTAs 2020

Rebel Wilson took the stage at the 2020 BAFTAs to present the best director award, and the audience got three minutes of amazing stand up comedy in the process.

Things started off a little awkward as Rebel made a Prince Andrew comment and then a Prince Harry comment. Prince Andrew has been linked to Jeffrey Epstein, while Prince Harry has been in the spotlight after parting ways with the royals.

“It is really great to be here at the Royal Andrew… uh, Royal Harry, no, at this Royal Palace place,” Rebel said.

Then, Rebel joked that she had recently been to a funeral for her film Cats.

Cats, strangely not nominated for any awards,” Rebel added before noting the lack of diversity in the nominations. “I’m not sure if everyone here is across the controversy, but this year there has been a distinct lack of nominations for felines. Even in this Best Director cat-egory, no felines have been nominated.”

Another celeb got on stage in front of the royals and mentioned Prince Harry at the event as well!
