Brit Oscar nominees to be feted in L.A.

Consul-General Hay hosts Great reception

Blighty’s Oscar nominees will be toasted at the Great British Film Reception hosted by British Consul-General Barbara Hay at her L.A. residence on Feb. 22, two days ahead of the Academy Awards.

The event, celebrating the U.K.’s creative achievements in film, will be held in partnership with the British Film Commission and VisitBritain.

The U.K. is repped at the Oscars by nominees in films including “Les Miserables,” “Lincoln,” “Anna Karenina,” “Skyfall,” “Snow White and the Huntsman,” “Hitchcock,” “Prometheus,” “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” the U.K.-Norwegian co-production “Kon-Tiki” and documentaries “The Invisible War” and “Searching for Sugar Man.”

Launched in 2012, the Great campaign highlights Blighty’s excellence in culture, music, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation and aims to advance achievement and enterprise.

Hay said: “The British nominees for this year’s Academy Awards illustrate the vital and indelible role the U.K. film industry plays in creating the world’s entertainment.”
