Cinema icon Elizabeth Taylor will be honored at the British Academy Of
Film And Television Awards (BAFTAs) in November and receive the
prestigious Britannia Award for Artistic Excellence.
The 73-year-old actress previously won a BAFTA in 1967 for her role in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, a role which also won her a second Oscar–she was awarded the first in 1961 for Butterfly 8.
Taylor retired from film in 2003 due to ill health, but remains a major
influence in Hollywood.
Los Angeles BAFTA chairman Gary Dartnell says, “To honor a British star of
the national treasure status of Miss Taylor is a downright thrill.”
