London, May 11 (ANI): Tracey Ullman has been honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Los Angeles branch of The British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

The British comedienne was presented with her first-ever BAFTA/LA Charlie Chaplin trophy at the British Comedy Festival and Awards.

“It’s lovely, I’m just thrilled. It’s a nice achievement and I’ve got lots of friends here tonight,” the BBC quoted her as saying.

The 49-year-old began her career on British TV with shows like Three Of A Kind, and later created The Tracey Ullman Show that won her several Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

Tracy said: “I’ve come a bloody long way from my mum’s window sill - the original Tracy Ullman show. I’d draw the curtains and my mum would sit in bed and I’d do a show on the window sill.”

Sharon Osbourne, the event host, paid tribute to the star for her contribution.

She said: “It’s not just her humour, it’s everything that she does. She can do anything. You know, she can be a serious actress, she can be the funniest woman on the planet. She can dance, she can sing. There’s nothing she can’t do. She’s scary.” (ANI)
