Britannia reigns at bash

Plethora of presenters herald kudos

HOLLYWOOD — The Britannia Awards more than made up for its compact roster of honorees with a multitude of presenters Nov. 4 at the BevHilton.

Tom Hanks took the prize for the largest number of presenters with six — four from “The Band of Brothers” including E Company’s real-life Edward “Babe” Heffron and William “Wild Bill” Guarnere — as well as Meg Ryan and “Polar Express” helmer Robert Zemeckis.

Hanks recounted his trials on set with Zemeckis whom he said put him on a boat with instructions to “just flounder, Tom” during “Cast Away.”

Brian Cox, Colin Farrell and Anjelica Huston did the honors for Jim Sheridan in the flesh, with seemingly all of Dublin offering taped congrats.

Meanwhile, Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons were sufficient for Helen Mirren.

Irons talked of Mirren’s other kudos, including one from the Naturists.

“Helen has never been shy in doing that Gerard Depardieu School of Taking Your Clothes Off, which is to just drop them,” Irons said.
