Harrison Ford Feted By BAFTA LA As Britannia Awards Move to Pop

BAFTA Los Angeles will bestow its achievement laurel on Harrison Ford at the Oct. 30 Britannia Awards, which are moving to cabler Pop this year after previously airing on BBC America.

Ford will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment at the ceremony to be held at the Beverly Hilton.

“It is impossible to imagine the past 40 years of Hollywood history without Harrison Ford, and his performances are as iconic as the films themselves,” BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Kieran Breen said in a statement.

The ceremony, hosted by actor-comedian Jack Whitehall, will air Nov. 6 on Pop. The Britannia Awards had aired on BBC America in recent years but were carried by TV Guide Network, the predecessor of Pop, in 2010 and 2011.

Other Britannia honorees this year include Orlando Bloom, who will receive the Britannia Humanitarian Award, and Meryl Streep, who will receive the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. Sam Mendes, James Corden, Amy Schumer and event production company Done + Dusted will also be recognized.

The Britannia Awards help kick off awards season for BAFTA. The org’s film awards are set for Feb. 14 in London and will continue to air on BBC America.
