BAFTA/LA announced today that Robert De Niro will be this year’s recipient of the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. The award will be presented at the 2009 BAFTA/LA Britannia Awards this coming November.
“Robert De Niro is truly a film icon, and his formidable ability to disappear into each and every character he plays makes him one of the most acclaimed actors in the world,” says BAFTA/LA Chairman Peter Morris. “His impressive body of work exemplifies his extraordinary craftsmanship and determination as an
actor, director and producer, and I am excited that BAFTA/LA has selected Mr. De Niro to receive this outstanding honour.”
