    2 years ago, George Clooney was the recipient and Julia Roberts presented as a Campaign move for A:OC.  In attendance were other contenders that year like Chiwetel Ejiofor for 12 Years, Idris Elba for Mandela, etc …

      

    Britannia Awards is an Awards Season Event.  Streep accepted the honor this year in lieu of Ricki & Suffragette.  Streep could have deferred it to next year for Florence Foster Jenkins.

     

    Now ….. Who will present the award to Streep ???

    Harrison Ford Joins Britannia Award Honors List As Show Moves To Pop Network


    By Patrick Hipes

    9:46am

    BAFTA Los Angeles is continuing to dole out its 2015 honors, saying today that Harrison Ford
    will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide
    Contribution to Entertainment. It also unveiled that the annual gala,
    set for October 30 at the Beverly Hilton, will air in the U.S. on Pop on November 6.

    Last year, BBC America aired the show, always a refreshing highlight of the awards-season trail (thanks for that goes to the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen and the Clint Eastwood-channeling Daniel Day-Lewis). This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Brit comedian Jack Whitehall.

    There will be plenty of star power this year for Pop, the joint-venture network from CBS and Lionsgate. Ford of course has Star Wars: The Force Awakens
    coming in December, and his Broccoli Award is for “that rare breed of
    iconic and trail-blazing individuals whose talented, innovative approach
    and true global appeal has had a profound, lasting impact on the
    worldwide entertainment industry,” BAFTA LA said today. He is joined on the honors list by Meryl Streep (Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film), Sam
    Mendes (John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing),
    James Corden (British Artist of the Year), Amy Schumer (Charlie Chaplin
    Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy) and Orlando Bloom (Britannia
    Humanitarian Award).

    TV and event production company Done + Dusted will produce this
    year’s ceremony, which will also air in the UK and other broadcasters in
    Europe, Latin America, Canada, South Africa and Asia.
