Los Angeles, August 20, 2014 - The British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles(R) (BAFTA Los Angeles), announced that award winning actor, Rob Brydon will be hosting the 2014 BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards presented by BBC America, for the second year in a row.

BAFTA Los Angeles was also pleased to announce today the new date for the Britannias -- Thursday, October 30, 2014 at Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. For the third year in a row, the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards will be broadcast on BBC AMERICA, airing in primetime November 2, 2014.

Brydon is an award winning actor, writer and producer including four BAFTA TV Award nominations, two British Comedy Awards, and a Royal Television Society award. Rob Brydon MBE studied at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama before joining BBC Wales as a radio and television presenter. He first came to the public's attention in 2000 with television shows "Marion and Geoff" and "Human Remains," winning British Comedy Awards for both. Since then his extensive credits have included "I'm Alan Partridge," "Little Britain," "Live at the Apollo," "Rob Brydon's Annually Retentive," "QI," "Have I Got News For You," "Rob Brydon's Identity Crisis," "Would I Lie To You?" and BAFTA award winning BBC AMERICA series "Gavin and Stacey" where he played the lead role of Stacey's Uncle Bryn. In 2009, Rob completed an eighty seven date tour of the UK with his stand up show, Rob Brydon Live, including a run in London's West End. Rob returned to the stage in the Autumn of 2011 alongside Kenneth Branagh in The Painkiller at The Lyric in Belfast. In the Autumn of 2012, Rob made his West End debut in Alan Ayckbourn's celebrated A Chorus of Disapproval directed by Sir Trevor Nunn. Rob has recently reteamed with Steve Coogan and Michael Winterbottom for the theatrical film "The Trip to Italy," a follow up to the "The Trip," which Brydon acted in and is currently in select theaters across the US.

"We are honored that Rob has agreed to return to host our Britannia Awards for the second year in a row" said BAFTA Los Angeles Chairman Nigel Daly OBE. "Rob brings a perfect balance of wit and sincerity to the evening and we know he will charm our audiences again this year, both in the ballroom and watching at home".

"There is no doubt that Rob will add his wry brilliance to the evening and host a memorable Britannias," added Britannia Award Co-Chairs Bumble Ward and Deborah Kolar.

"Rob brought an exciting energy to the star-studded 2013 ceremony that was full of surprises, said Richard DeCroce, SVP of Programming, BBC AMERICA. His British comedic styling is the perfect match for our audience."

Last year's star-studded award show honored Kathryn Bigelow, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Sir Ben Kingsley, and presenters Shohreh Aghdashloo, Judd Apatow, Jennifer Ehle, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alice Eve, Ralph Fiennes, Sean Penn, Julia Roberts, and Sigourney Weaver.

The Britannia Awards are BAFTA Los Angeles' highest accolade, a celebration of achievements honoring individuals and companies that have dedicated their careers to advancing the entertainment arts. The Britannia Awards are presented annually at a gala dinner, where peers and colleagues celebrate the work and accomplishments of the year's distinguished honorees.
