Los Angeles, July 13, 2011 — The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles (BAFTA Los Angeles) will honor Academy Award nominated and BAFTA winning actress Helena Bonham Carter with the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year at the 2011 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards on Wednesday, November 30 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolade, a celebration of achievements honoring individuals and companies that have dedicated their careers or corporate missions to advancing the entertainment arts. “Helena Bonham Carter is an actress of immense versatility, and her range across movies of all genres is at once remarkable and fearless,” says Nigel Lythgoe, Chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles. “She unwaveringly maintains her integrity and, through her choice ofroles, continually challenges both herself and her audiences’ perception of her.” Bonham Carter joins the previously announced John Lasseter who will receive the Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Filmed Entertainment, and David Yates who will be honored with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing. Additional awards which are presented at the annual Britannia evening include the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film and the Charlie Chaplin Award for Excellence in Comedy.
