UPDATE 7/1: The forty-two Brits have been named and are listed below.

EARLIER: The British are coming! BAFTA will host its inaugural "Brits to Watch" event July 9 at Los Angeles' Belasco Theater, to bring attention to emerging talents in film, TV and video games from across the Atlantic. Forty-two Brits have been chosen by BAFTA to attend the black tie event (names will be announced closer to the show), where they will have the opportunity to network at tables hosted by industry professionals. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the event, to give it some royal flair.

Says BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Nigel Lythgoe:

“This very special event is an excellent extension of BAFTA’s charitable work in Los Angeles, and around the world. Promoting the individual and collective achievements of our most promising emerging British talent is such an important part of our remit, whilst encouraging goodwill for the UK and opening further opportunities for UK-US collaboration. Being given the opportunity of meeting Hollywood's elite will provide a highly significant and beneficial moment for them, especially at such a formative stage of their careers.”
