BAFTA/L.A. award to Ben Stiller

Comedian draws Charlie Chaplin nod

BAFTA/L.A. has tapped Ben Stiller to receive the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy.

Presentation of the kudo will be made at the BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards on Nov. 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“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,” said BAFTA/L.A. chairman Nigel Lythgoe. “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.”

Previously announced awards are going to Helena Bonham Carter for British artist of the year; John Lasseter, the Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Filmed Entertainment; and David Yates, the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing. Stiller most recently starred in the Broadway revival of John Guare’s “The House of Blue Leaves.”
