This year, one area of considerable focus for BAFTA Los Angeles will be to enhance our television operations and Members will have already noticed our significant increase in television screenings and award voting participation.
This year, BAFTA Los Angeles Members were eligible to vote in three rounds of the British Academy Television Awards (Single Drama, Single Documentary and International Program). The Awards will be held in the UK on Sunday, May 27, 2012.
We also enjoyed a sold-out evening with Eddie Izzard and Steve Barron (pictured) for a special unveiling of the new Treasure Island miniseries, due to air in the US on the SyFy Network later this year. It was a wonderful evening, with Eddie and Steve joining Brian Henson (Chairman of the Jim Hensen Company, and Director of Muppet Treasure Island) for a post-screening conversation on stage.
We are already working one some very exciting television events in the coming months, and we encourage our members to join us as we strive to expand this important part of our activities.
