Helen Mirren at the 2014 Golden Globes

There ain’t nothing like a Dame. BAFTA will present Helen Mirren with its highest honor, the Fellowship, at the BAFTA Awards ceremony taking place at London’s Royal Opera House on February 16.

The Fellowship is bestowed by the Brit Academy to an individual in recognition of her or his outstanding contribution to film, television or games.

Previous honorees include the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Sean Connery, Elizabeth Taylor, Stanley Kubrick, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Lee and Martin Scorsese. Sir Alan Parker received the Fellowship at last year’s Film Awards.

Mirren will add the honor to her already four BAFTA wins and seven nominations, as well as her Oscar (“The Queen”), three Golden Globes and four Emmys. She stated:

“This is the greatest professional honour I can imagine, certainly one I never dreamt of as a schoolgirl in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. To join that list of legendary names is overwhelming.”
