London, (ANI): American Idol judge Simon Cowell will be presented
with a special honour at next month's British Academy (BAFTA)
According to The Daily Express, the BAFTA committee has chosen
him for his 'outstanding contribution (to TV) and for his
development of new talent.' Not just that, Cowell could be in line
to win another award since his hit TV reality contest Britain's Got
Talent is nominated for Best Entertainment Programme. It is the
second special honour Cowell is set to receive in 2010.
Continuing the award-winning spree, he will receive an
International Emmy award in November for having reshaped 21st
century television and music around the world.
Cowell came under the spotlight as a judge in the singing
contest Pop Idol in 2001, before appearing on the panel of American
Idol. He also created The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.
