Samuel L. Jackson will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment at this year’s Britannia Awards, BAFTA Los Angeles announced Tuesday.

BAFTA/LA bestows the honor on recipients “whose talented, innovative approach and true global appeal has had a profound, lasting impact on the worldwide entertainment industry.”

“Like the distinguished producer after whom this award is named, Samuel L.
