Big Names Bestowed 2007 BAFTA/LA Awards


Actors Denzel Washington and Kate Winslet were among the honorees at the prestigious ceremony held Thursday, November 1, 2007 in Los Angeles.

Two A-list Hollywood actors and two prominent filmmakers took home kudos on Thursday night (Nov. 1) as the British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles (BAFTA/LA) held out its 16th annual BAFTA/LA Cunard Britannia Awards at The Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

Oscar winner Denzel Washington finally picked up the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film while fellow thesp Kate Winslet was deemed British Artist of the Year. Joining them as the honorees were "Casino Royale" helmer Martin Campbell and New Zealand-born British screenwriter Richard Curtis, who accepted the John Schlesinger Award for Excellence in Directing and Humanitarian Award, respectively.

"It feels good, it's a very prestigious group of people I'll be standing next to in there so it's good to be among that group." Washington remarked before the ceremony. "I've spent a lot of time in England, in London in particular, and I love the country so to be recognised is a great honor."

Other celebrated names also stepped out for the night to salute the award recipients at this special occasion, in the same time undeniably giving much more highlights to the event. Among them spotted were the likes of Helen Mirren, Pierce Brosnan, Jodie Foster, Kathy Bates, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Connelly, who was accompanied by beloved husband Paul Bettany.
