BAFTA Los Angeles has announced the date of Oct. 27 for its 2017 edition of the Britannia Awards, which will once again take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The 2016 ceremony, which also took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in October and was hosted by British actor and comedian Ben “Doc Brown” Smith, celebrated six stars from both sides of the Atlantic and from across the acting and directing spectrum.

The honorees were  Ang Lee, who received the  John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing;  Samuel L. Jackson, who was honored with the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment;  Ricky Gervais, who was given the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy;  Ewan McGregor, who was awarded the Britannia Humanitarian Award;  Felicity Jones, who was honored with the British Artist of the Year;  and finally Jodie Foster, who took home the prestigious  Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.
