BAFTA to fete Spelling

Org expands kudos

Television producer Aaron Spelling has been selected by The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles (BAFTA LA) as the inaugural recipient of the org’s Britannia Award for Television.

Spelling has amassed over 4,000 hours of TV programming, including the series “”The Mod Squad,” “The Love Boat,” “Dynasty,” “Fantasy Island,” and the more recent “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Melrose Place.” He has previously received awards from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Writers Guild of America, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Producers Guild of America and the Museum of Broadcasting. He has also been inducted into the ATAS’ Hall of Fame.

This year’s program has been expanded to include honors for excellence in both TV and commercials. A special recognition award will also be presented to the BBC for its outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry. As previously announced, BAFTA LA will honor the late Stanley Kubrick with its Britannia Award. The prize has now been renamed in the filmmaker’s honor.

A black-tie gala will be held Sept. 14 at the Beverly Hilton. Robert A. Daly and Terry S. Semel serve as honorary co-chairs.
