A brilliant character actress, Vukotic became well known for her role of Pina Fantozzi in the Fantozzi series of comedy films (winning a Nastro d'Argento for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Fantozzi in paradiso) and, later in her life, for the role of Grandma Enrica in the TV series Un medico in famiglia. She worked with Federico Fellini, Luis Bunuel and Andrei Tarkovsky.
