Meanwhile, Ang Lee is set to be honoured with the BAFTA Fellowship at this year's ceremony.
The 66-year-old director - who is behind hit films including 'Brokeback Mountain', 'Life of Pi' and 'Crouching Tiger' - will be recognised for his contribution to film.
He commented: "England has been particularly good to me in my career, especially with 'Sense and Sensibility', which was like a second film school for me. It's a tremendous honour to receive the Bafta Academy Fellowship and be counted among such brilliant filmmakers."
Marc Samuelson, Chair of BAFTA's Film Committee, added: "Ang Lee is a master of his craft. He is an incredibly versatile, daring and exceptional filmmaker who effortlessly moves between genres. His films have been truly ground-breaking both in terms of their technical expertise and for the subject matters he tackles. His pioneering work in 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', 'Brokeback Mountain', 'Life of Pi' and so many other titles not only showcase his technical ability and deep understanding of the filmmaking process, but also his ability to infuse every story – no matter how epic or simple – with humanising characters we can all relate to on an emotional level through his exceptional work."
