Stiller was honored earlier in the month by BAFTA at the Britannia Awards in Beverly Hills. The academy presented him with the Charlie Chaplin award for “excellence in comedy.”
After jokingly asking if BAFTA stood for “Black Astronauts Flight Training Association,” Stiller explained how he was talked into attending the event. “They told me, ‘Ben, it’s an awards show, and it’s going to be broadcast on the TV Guide Channel,’” he said, according to the LA Times. “And I said, ‘Say no more. You had me at broadcast. You really had me at TV Guide Channel. I’ve been looking to break into half the TV screen for a long time.’”
