"I'm so happy to be back hosting my 4th Britannia Awards," said Cumming. "It's 15 years since I first came to Hollywood and what better way to commemorate that than to be hosting a celebration of the best of Britiish and Tinseltown. I'm excited to see old friends and raise a few glasses to the best in our business -- and be a bit mischievous too of course."

The 2012 Britannia Award honorees include BAFTA award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Craig, Quentin Tarantino, Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Will Wright on Nov. 7 at the Bevely Hilton Hotel.

BBC America will broadcast the awards show on Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. ET.
