Ben Stiller Pokes Fun at BAFTA and 'Brittania Awards' Upon Winning One (VIDEO)

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."

25 Things You Didn't Know About ... Seinfeld

Seinfeld CastThink you know everything there is to know about 'Seinfeld'? Ok, maybe you do, but for the rest of us, TV Guide Channel put together a special called '25 Things You Didn't Know About ... Seinfeld.'

For example, Elaine isn't the only one who can work for J. Peterman. In fact, J. Peterman is a real person with a real catalog that 'Seinfeld' just happened to make famous. And John O'Hurley, who played J. Peterman on the show, actually bought the company a year after Seinfeld ended, bringing it out of bankruptcy to co-own it with J. Peterman himself.

Curb Your Enthusiasm will be on TV Guide and TV Land

Curb Your EnthusiasmCurb Your Enthusiasm reruns are coming to basic cable. First they will be shown on the TV Guide Channel next year (doesn't everybody get that channel? I thought it was just a guide to what's on television. They have shows?) and then TV Land in 2013. Any event that brings Larry David's sense of humor to the masses can only be a good thing (Who had the idea for the humor in awkward situations first, Larry or Ricky Gervais?).

Mind you, the show's language is somewhat racy for basic cable. There will be some bleeping here and there. At least there's no prevalent nudity in any episode that I recall. There is some adult subject matter, but nothing basic cable hasn't seen before. Hey, if The Sopranos can make it to basic cable then Larry David should have no problem.

Given Susie Essman's vocabulary on the series, she may have every third word bleeped. That could possibly make her lines even funnier.

Check us out, dishing about 'Lost' on the TV Guide Channel!

I have a confession to make: I could talk about the mysteries, love triangles and time flashing on 'Lost' all day.

Now I have a little shameless promotion: Other people like talking 'Lost' with me too. Namely my fellow fans John Fugelsang and Teresa Strasser at TV Guide's 'TV Watercooler.' They invite me on their show each week to dish about what's going on and spill a few sneaks about what's to come.

A little fuzzy about what happened on the season 5 premiere? Check out our chat from this week's episode after the jump. Still want more? Read our A-to-Z Guide, watch full episodes online and read our recaps to prep for the rest of this phenomenal season. And don't be shy! Comment if you have questions that need answering. Like I said, I never got tired of this topic.

The Golden Globes, or how to make me hate an awards show

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 14th 2008 9:26AM
Nancy O'Dell and Billy BushSo Billy Bush and Nancy O'Dell got promoted from commenting in the Golden Globe post-show to hosting the entire show and presenting all the awards (actually recapping the winners since apparently the Hollywood Foreign Press Association did so earlier in a press conference covered by E! and TV Guide Channel). So not only does NBC not have an awards show, but they don't even get first dibs on announcing the winners.

First of all, does Billy Bush always wear his hair like that or did he leave his roof down in the convertible with his hair wet and gelled? It looks like a slicked back mullet, and that's not a look just anyone can pull off. In fact, no one can pull off that look. But it may have actually been a better choice than the brown suit. Sadly, though, the suit and hair was the least of the problems with last night's one hour Golden Globe "extravaganza."
