The 'Absolutely Fabulous' star dedicated her Outstanding Contribution gong to her close friend during her acceptance speech at Tuesday (7 June) night's glitzy event.
Jennifer told the star-studded crowd: "I dedicate this award to someone who passed away this year, Victoria Wood. She was a great friend to us and it was a great loss."
Victoria died back in April aged 62, following a private battle with cancer.
Jennifer was presented with her award by comedy partner Dawn French, who wasted no time in ribbing her best mate.
"Why exactly she is being rewarded for bad behavior and relentless showing off I don't know," Dawn said.
"I asked Glamour why in holy tits was she chosen ahead of some of the people in this room tonight and here's what they sent me: She's a comedy icon, got an international Emmy and a Writers Guild Award to prove it. She's appeared in over 30 shows. Big deal. She's become one of the best loved comedy duos in history, and now has the huge fuck off big movie version of 'Absolutely Fabulous'. So? She's an inspiration to a whole new generation of celebrity comics including Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham, but hey ho..."
Jennifer then shouted at her pal: "Don't stand behind me you fucking twat," before going on to say, "I would like to thank my lovely good friend here, Dawn French. Thank you. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. You are my inspiration."
She added: "If I've made an outstanding contribution to anything I hope it's to female friendships."
