Congrats to the legend

Jane Fonda will be honoured by BAFTA Los Angeles with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.

The actress will be presented with the accolade at the 2019 British Academy Britannia Awards later this year. British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles chair of the board, Kathryn Busby, praised the 81-year-old screen legend for her contribution to acting.

“We could not think of a more deserving recipient for this year’s Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film and are looking forward to honouring her outstanding achievements.”

 Over her almost 60-year career, Jane has picked up two other acting awards from BAFTA; in 1979 for her role as playwright Lillian Hellman in the semi-autobiographical Julia, and the following year for disaster-thriller The China Syndrome.

The star has also won seven Golden Globes, two Academy Awards and an Emmy. She also stars on Netflix's hit Grace and Frankie along with lifetime friend and actress Lily Tomlin. 

The 2019 British Academy Britannia Awards will take place at the The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California on 25 October.
