The honour comes after the star was presented with the Career Achievement Honour at this year's Hollywood Film Awards.
Nicole admitted it was "incredibly validating" and gave her the "opportunity" to throw her "support and voice" behind things she is "passionate" about however, she also revealed she didn't go into acting just for acclaim or awards.
She said: "I've just always wanted to act since I was a little girl. I needed to. And I started it at school, I went to drama school, and I've just continued on the path and it's lead me to the most wonderful places and it's given me so much joy."
Public tickets will be available to book from Friday 9 November at 12:30pm at www.bafta.org/whats-on/.
