The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will honor stage and screen veteran Helen Mirren with a Fellowship, the organization's highest honor, at a ceremony at the Royal Opera House on February 16.

Mirren most recently won an Olivier Award for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II in the West End production of Peter Morgan's The Audience. Her many other stage roles include Broadway revivals of A Month in the Country and The Dance of Death, for which she received Tony nominations. Dame Mirren has been seen on-screen in Hitchcock, National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, The Queen, for which she won an Academy Award, and television's Prime Suspect, among many others.

Previous BAFTA fellowship honorees include stage greats like Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench, and Vanessa Redgrave.
