Simon Cowell was honored with a special award for his outstanding contribution to broadcasting by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) in a televised awards ceremony tonight in the UK.
Here’s an excerpt from his acceptance speech: “One of my happiest memories as a kid was when my dad came home with a color TV set. I was about five years old and me and my friends came back from school and watched the one program that was in color. So standing here getting an award for making television shows is the happiest feeling of my life, ”
