British director Christopher Nolan, who has directed Hollywood blockbusters including Inception and The Dark Knight, will also be honoured at the ceremony for artistic excellence in directing. Stephen Fry will present the gala event in Los Angeles on 4 November.

Bafta/LA chairman Nigel Lythgoe commented: "We could not be more delighted about our first honorees of this year's Britannia Awards, representing two outstanding British talents."

"Chris Nolan is a visionary film-maker who continually raises the bar with each movie he makes, and Michael Sheen is an actor of immense depth who seamlessly tackles drama and comedic roles alike."
