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. Jackson has made an undeniable contribution to the global film industry,” said Kieran Breen, BAFTA/LA chairman. “He has provided us with some of the most iconic roles in movie history not to mention some of the classic movie lines of all time.”

British actor and comedian Jack Whitehall will host the ceremony for a second time and Ang Lee will be honored with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing. More honorees will be announced in the coming months.
