Long recognized to be a versatile thespian consistently delivering convincing, stunning performances, Denzel Washington is about to receive one more prestigious honor for his dedication to filmmaking.

The actor has been announced to be the honoree of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles' Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film at the 2007 BAFTA/LA Cunard Britannia Awards, set to take place at the Century Plaza Hotel on November 1, 2007.
