BAFTA Los Angeles is honoring Helena Bonham Carter with their Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year at this year's BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards, being held November 30. Bonham Carter won the Best Supporting Actress BAFTA and was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in "The King's Speech." She also appeared in 2010's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," the second installment of which she appears in this weekend.
BAFTA chairman Nigel Lythgoe says; "She unwaveringly maintains her integrity and, through her choice of roles, continually challenges both herself and her audiences' perception of her.” John Lasseter was previously announced as the recipient of the Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Filmed Entertainment, while David Yates will receive the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing. These talents join the likes of Clint Eastwood, Colin Firth, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Kate Winslet and Elizabeth Taylor, all of whom have received Britannia Awards since their inception in 1989.
