Bafta for Monty Python’s 40th

The Monty Python team is to receive a British Film and Television Arts special award to mark their contribution to film and television at their 40th anniversary reunion event in New York.

The Special Award will be presented at an event co-hosted by BAFTA and IFC (Independent Film Channel) to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the creation of Monty Python. John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin will all be in attendance.

The Academy last honoured the Monty Python team in 1987 when they were presented with the Michael Balcon Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema.

In honour of that the Cheese Sketch:
