The pair's work with the lauded impression artist has garnered them six Emmy nominations and one Emmy win, along with a Writers Guild of America award. In 2007, both Clement and La Frenais were awarded the O.B.E. (also known as Officer of the Order of the British Empire) for their achievements in screenwriting.
