The veteran actress will be presented with the accolade at the 2019 British Academy Britannia Awards later this year.

British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles chair of the board, Kathryn Busby, praised the 81-year-old screen legend for her contribution to acting.

"Jane Fonda is and always has been an unstoppable force on stage, on screen and behind the camera. The legendary actress's illustrious career has spanned decades and awarded her with numerous accolades for the dozens of characters she has so brilliantly portrayed," she gushed in a statement. "We could not think of a more deserving recipient for this year's Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film and are looking forward to honouring her outstanding achievements".

Previous recipients of the prize include Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and Meryl Streep.

The British Academy Britannia Awards is the biggest BAFTA event held outside of the U.K., and will be streamed live in the U.S. and Canada.

Over her almost 60-year career, Jane has picked up two other acting awards from BAFTA; in 1979 for her role as playwright Lillian Hellman in the semi-autobiographical "Julia", and the following year for disaster-thriller "The China Syndrome".

The star has also won seven Golden Globes, two Academy Awards and an Emmy.

The 2019 British Academy Britannia Awards will take place at the The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California on 25 October.
