Ben Stiller, '2011 Brittania Awards'Robert Downey, Jr. reluctantly awarded Ben Stiller with the Charlie Chaplin Brittania Award for Excellence in Comedy at the '2011 Brittania Awards' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on TV Guide), teasing the actor over their work in 'Tropic Thunder.'

Stiller, though, teased the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in his acceptance speech, saying that at first he thought BAFTA stood for Black Astronaut Flight Training Association. He went on to say that when first advised of the British honor he would be receiving, he thought he would be knighted "for a few giddy days."

Finally, somebody said to me, Ben it's an awards show and it's gonnna be broadcast on the TV Guide channel. And I said, Say no more," Stiller said. "You had me at broadcast."

It was a fun evening, filled with stars and lots of laughs.
