On November 9, BAFTA LA will honor actor, director and producer George Clooney with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film at the 2013 Britannia Awards. The award is "presented to a unique individual, upon whose work is stamped the indelible mark of authorship and commitment, and who has lifted the craft to new heights."

Clooney received a BAFTA earlier this year, as well as an Oscar, for producing Ben Affleck's "Argo." He is currently finishing his latest directorial effort, "The Monuments Men," which is slated for awards season release later this year. Last year, BAFTA gave the Stanley Kubrick Award to Daniel Day-Lewis, who parodied Clint Eastwood by accepting the award next to an empty chair. Previous winners include Warren Beatty, Jeff Bridge and Robert De Niro. A broadcast of the Britannia Awards will air November 10, 8pm ET, on BBC America
