The two-time Oscar winner will be celebrated in October.



Like the previously announced award recognition for director Steve McQueen, actress Cate Blanchett will be celebrated at the 2018 British Academy Britannia Awards with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.


The event will take place Friday, October 26, 2018, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.


In a statement, BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Kieran Breen said, "With an impressive and extensive repertoire of work on screen and stage, Cate's award-winning talent is unprecedented, earning her international acclaim and numerous accolades. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate her brilliant work by honoring her with this year's Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film."
