The BAFTA Film Awards are certainly upon us. That means we get to talk about everything that excites and thrills us about film just gone. We also get to celebrate some heroes and icons of the British Film industry. This year, BAFTA are awarding Sir Ridley Scott with that honour.
The director has given us so many brilliant films such as the utterly incomparable Blade Runner, the best of sci-fi film Alien, and most recently All The Money in the World. His work has transgressed genres and established excellent and superb cinematic films. It’s great that he is now being honoured!
Sir Ridley Scott said: “It is a privilege to have been able to make a career for myself in this industry and to be honoured for my body of work is indeed very gratifying.”
Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, has said of the news, “Sir Ridley Scott is a visionary director, one of the great British filmmakers whose work has made an indelible mark on the history of cinema.”
The prestigious award is a coveted one and one of the highest someone in this country can receive. What do you think of the news?
The BAFTA Film Awards take place Sunday 18th February!
