Harry Potter star Helena Bonham Carter and the movie franchise's director David Yates were the toast of Hollywood on Wednesday night as they were honoured at the 2011 BAFTA/La Britannia Awards.

The actress was hailed as the British Artist of the Year by the Los Angeles branch of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

Yates landed the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Excellence in Directing, while Pixar chief and animator John Lasseter was lauded for Worldwide Contributions to Filmed Entertainment.

Scottish actor Alan Cumming hosted the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Ben Stiller was handed the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy.

Warren Beatty received the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film, and used his speech to thank wife Annette Bening and his sister Shirley MacLaine, both of whom attended the event.

Nigel Lythgoe, chairman of BAFTA Los Angeles, said, "Warren Beatty is an undisputed film icon who, during nearly a half-century, has created a body of work that transcends trends and remains timeless. He is a powerful and original creative force, both in front (of) and behind the camera, and it is our distinct pleasure to honour and celebrate his immense talents."

Praising the winners, Cumming told the audience, "It's all about people who have contributed things over their careers, so it's less faddy (sic) and markety (sic) and less current, and more about celebrating these people for what they've done over their entire lives." »
