The British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles will present Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington with its Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film on November 1, 2007.

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.

"Denzel is a remarkably talented actor who always entertains the audience with the rich array of characters that he has portrayed onscreen," BAFTA/LA chairman Peter Morris commented. "As both an actor and director he continually takes on challenging projects, and we are thrilled to honor and celebrate his immense talents."

Winners of two Academy Awards for his roles in "Glory" (1989) and "Training Day" (2001), Washington first entered show business through the 1977 made-for-television movie "Wilma" to then land his breakthrough in the popular TV series "St. Elsewhere." Also a lauded director, he next can be seen playing Frank Lucas in Ridley Scott's "American Gangster", which will open in theaters nationwide on November 2 this year.
