Ben Stiller to be honored with BAFTA Britannia Award


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles announced that it will honor Ben Stiller with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy at the 2011 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolade, a celebration of achievements honoring individuals and companies that have dedicated their careers or corporate missions to advancing the entertainment arts.

“Ben Stiller is a master of comedy who, just like the legendary filmmaker for whom this award is named, embodies the remarkable multi-hyphenate talents of actor, writer, director and producer,” says Nigel Lythgoe, Chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles.

“Having worked with him personally on a couple of ‘IDOL GIVES BACK’ shows, I am more than delighted that BAFTA Los Angeles has selected him to join our other 2011 distinguished honorees to receive this outstanding honor.”

Stiller joins the previously announced Helena Bonham Carter, who will receive the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year; John Lasseter who will be honored with the Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Filmed Entertainment; and David Yates who will be recognized with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing.

The recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film will be announced shortly.
