Jaguar Cars announced today that they will elevate their presence in Hollywood by joining with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles (BAFTA LA) as the official 2013 title sponsor of the BAFTA LA Jaguar Britannia Awards.
The Jaguar Britannia Awards, taking place Nov. 9 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, celebrates the achievements of those who have made an outstanding contribution to excellence in the international entertainment industry.
Honors are given for excellence in film, directing and comedy, as well as for worldwide contribution to entertainment and for use of the moving image for humanitarian causes.
The 2013 Jaguar Britannia Awards will be hosted by actor and comedian, Rob Brydon.
BAFTA LA will honor Sir Ben Kingsley with the “Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment”; George Clooney
with the “Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film”; Kathryn Bigelow

“This partnership with BAFTA LA and Jaguar aims to highlight the increasing appreciation for British innovation in everything from the entertainment and fashion worlds to luxury goods and automobiles,” said Jeff Curry, brand VP, Jaguar North America.
Jaguar will be showcasing its presence at the Jaguar Britannia Awards through several activations taking place throughout the famed Beverly Hilton’s grounds. The brand’s own star of the night will be the recently launched 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE.
