Britannia mania

BAFTA/LA gala has DIY roast

The stars ended up roasting themselves at the BAFTA/LA Britannia awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

The TV Guide channel filmed the Thursday gala, but any fears that exposure on the tube would tone down the usually uproarious evening were soon gone when British artist of the year honoree Michael Sheen described his first onscreen kiss (and more) in a nude scene with the evening’s host, Stephen Fry, in the 1997 movie “Wilde.”

“You’re not just my lover, you’re my friend,” Sheen said of Fry, then launched into a graphically detailed anecdote about that movie experience, which, to this day, “gives me a rectal quivering when I think about it.”

Betty White, who received the Charlie Chaplin Britannia for excellence in comedy, first denied having a relationship with the silent-era star, then conceded, “Well, maybe once.”

After picking up the Stanley Kubrick Award for film, Jeff Bridges touted working again with brother Beau, who was present, saying, “Anyone have any ideas for putting us together, come on down.”

The John Schlesinger Britannia for directing went to Christopher Nolan, who admitted he was inspired by fellow Britannia honorees Ridley and Tony Scott, adding, “Which is a polite way of saying I’m ripping them off.”
