I just – I was looking out the window, I heard Rebel Wilson and James Corden‘s voice on TV, they’re presenting an award, I look back over, and they’re fucking dressed as cats. I wasn’t ready.
The pair, who starred in that rather… interesting movie, presented the award for best visual effects. Which checks out.
“As cast members of the motion picture Cats, nobody more than us understand the importance of good visual effects,” Corden (I think?) said. I snorted. I really snorted.
Look, Cats may not have been nominated for an Academy Award despite its star-studded cast and impressive crew, but ah well, at least the film was still somehow at the Oscars.
I don’t know what else to say. I’m so uncomfortable. I hate it. Cursed content. CURSED, I TELL YOU, CURSED.
Although, I did absolutely giggle when Corden and Wilson started slapping the microphone. Bloody hell.
