Bigelow will received the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing, while Kingsley will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment.

They'll join previously announced honoree George Clooney, who will be accepting the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. More honorees to be announced in the coming weeks.

Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" scored an Oscar earlier this year for Sound Editing, and nabbed an additional four nominations, for Editing, Original Screenplay, Picture and Actress (Jessica Chastain). Meanwhile, Kingsley turned in a alternately creepy and hilariously silly performance as the Mandarin in box-office juggernaut "Iron Man 3"; he's got "Ender's Game," among many other projects, in the pipeline, set to hit theaters November 1.
