The “Blue Jasmine” star will be feted for her “authorship and ingenuity” on October 26 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“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,” BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Kieran Breen says. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to celebrate her brilliant work by honouring her with this year’s Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.”
