Ridley Scott

Scott in 2015 Sir Ridley Scott (born 30 November 1937) is an English filmmaker. He is best known for directing films in the science fiction, crime and historical drama genres. His work is known for its atmospheric and highly concentrated visual style. He ranks among the highest-grossing directors and has received many accolades, including the BAFTA Fellowship for lifetime achievement in 2018, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and a Golden Globe Award. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003, and appointed a Knight Grand Cross by King Charles III in 2024.

An alumnus of the Royal College of Art in London, Scott began his career in television as a designer and director before moving into advertising as a director of commercials. He made his film directorial debut with ''The Duellists'' (1977) and gained wider recognition with his next film, ''Alien'' (1979). Though his films range widely in setting and period, they showcase memorable imagery of urban environments, spanning 2nd-century Rome in ''Gladiator'' (2000), 12th-century Jerusalem in ''Kingdom of Heaven'' (2005), medieval England in ''Robin Hood'' (2010), ancient Memphis in ''Exodus: Gods and Kings'' (2014), contemporary Mogadishu in ''Black Hawk Down'' (2001), and the futuristic cityscapes of ''Blade Runner'' (1982) and different planets in ''Alien'', ''Prometheus'' (2012), ''The Martian'' (2015) and ''Alien: Covenant'' (2017).

Scott has been nominated for three Academy Awards for Directing for ''Thelma & Louise'', ''Gladiator'' and ''Black Hawk Down''. ''Gladiator'' won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and he received a nomination in the same category for ''The Martian''. In 1995, both Scott and his brother Tony received a British Academy Film Award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. Scott's films ''Alien'', ''Blade Runner'' and ''Thelma & Louise'' were each selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being considered "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". In a 2004 BBC poll, Scott was ranked 10 on the list of most influential people in British culture. Scott is also known for his work in television, having earned 10 Primetime Emmy Award nominations. He won twice, for Outstanding Television Film for the HBO film ''The Gathering Storm'' (2002) and for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special for the History Channel's ''Gettysburg'' (2011). He was Emmy-nominated for ''RKO 281'' (1999), ''The Andromeda Strain'' (2008), and ''The Pillars of the Earth'' (2010). Provided by Wikipedia
