The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles will salute Meryl Streep, Sam Mendes and James Corden with Britannia Awards at its October 30 ceremony at the Beverly Hilton. Additional honorees will be announced soon. Streep is the recipient of this year’s Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film, which the org said “is presented to a unique individual, upon whose work is stamped the indelible mark of authorship and commitment, and who has lifted the craft to new heights.” Prior recipients include Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks. The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles’ highest accolade. The honors are presented annually at a gala dinner. Proceeds support BAFTA Los Angeles’ ongoing education, scholarship, community outreach and archival projects.
