Britannia kudos to fete Craig, Tarantino

BAFTA LA awards to be telecast Nov. 11 on BBC America

Daniel Craig, Quentin Tarantino, “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and videogame designer Will Wright are set to be feted by BAFTA LA at the Nov. 7 Britannia Awards.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles will hold its annual kudos event at the BevHilton.

Craig, who returns as James Bond in November with “Skyfall,” will receive the British Artist of the Year Award. Helmer Tarantino, poised to hit screens again in December with “Django Unchained,” is set to receive the John Schlesinger Award for excellence in directing.

Parker and Stone, the duo behind the Broadway hit “The Book of Mormon,” will receive the Charlie Chaplin Award for excellence in comedy. Wright will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Award for worldwide contribution to entertainment.

Additional honorees will be announced in the coming weeks.

Cabler BBC America will telecast the ceremony on Nov. 11, including a pre-show special.

“With the BBC broadcasting the BAFTA Awards in London, it feels only natural that BBC America would become our broadcasting partner for the Britannias here in L.A.,” said Britannia Awards chairman Nigel Lythgoe.

Proceeds from the ceremony support BAFTA Los Angeles’ education, scholarship, community outreach and archival projects.
