“Helena Bonham Carter is an actress of immense versatility, and her range across movies of all genres is at once remarkable and fearless" says BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Nigel Lythgoe. “She unwaveringly maintains her integrity and, through her choice of roles, continually challenges both herself and her audiences' perception of her.”

As previously announced, Academy Award® winning writer/director John Lasseter will receive the Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Filmed Entertainment, and BAFTA winning director David Yates will receive with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing.

The Britannia Awards are presented annually at a gala dinner, where peers and colleagues celebrate the work and accomplishments of the distinguished honorees. Proceeds from the gala ceremony support BAFTA Los Angeles’ ongoing education, scholarship, community outreach and archival projects.
