We are pleased to share details for the AMD British Academy Britannia Awards.
The AMD British Academy Britannia Awards is BAFTA’s biggest event outside of the UK, where Brits and anglophiles alike come together in Los Angeles in celebration of exceptional members of the creative community who have dedicated their careers to advancing the art forms of the moving image in the US, UK and beyond.
The AMD Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolades, recognizing both outstanding British talent, and exceptional international talent by virtue of their strong connection to British entertainment through their body of work.
Known to be an enjoyable evening that captures a unique blend of sincerity and British irreverence, the evening also serves to celebrate the long-standing collaboration between the British and American industries.
Proceeds from the event support BAFTA’s Access for All campaign, a range of impactful educational initiatives created to provide a foot-in-the-door and a pathway to success for talented individuals, uninhibited by background, demographics or personal circumstance.
We will celebrate the work of six extraordinary talents. Announced to date, Dick Van Dyke, will receive the Britannia Award for Excellence in Television, and Ava DuVernay, who will receive the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing presented by The GREAT Britain Campaign. Claire Foy will be presented with the Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year presented by Burberry, award-winning actor and director Kenneth Branagh will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment, and Matt Damon will receive the Stanely Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film presented by Newegg.
Stay tuned for more honoree announcements coming very soon.
