Julia Louis-Dreyfus will be honored at the 2014 BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, where she will be presented with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. The ceremony takes place Oct. 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Speaking of the five-time Emmy-winning actress, BAFTA LA chairman Nigel Daly, said,“Her ability to create iconic, enduring characters like Selina Meyer, Christine Campbell, Elaine Benes and her most recent role as Eva in Enough Said, is such that it is impossible to imagine the last 20 years of comedy without her.” Added Britannia Award co-chairs Bumble Ward and Deborah Kolar, “Julia Louis-Dreyfus follows in the footsteps of Lucille Ball and other great comic actresses of our era. She is a truly unique talent and highly deserving of this honor.”
CONGRATS to Julia winning an Emmy for Veep!

This season was just so good, right down to Selina and Gary (Tony Hale) laughing hysterically on the bathroom floor. But I’m so curious about some of the more memorable props: Did someone get to keep that insane crate? What about the fabulous squeaky shoes?
They all go into storage, man — we’ve got gobs of storage because we may need them again. I don’t know why, but we might. [Laughs.] God save us all, but it is possible that those horrible props will make another appearance. You never know. Although Selina did say [laughs], “Take these shoes and shoot ‘em in the f—ing head.” As I recall, that’s the line, so it’s possible those shoes have been murdered.
