Ridley Scott

Scott in August 2015 Sir Ridley Scott (born 30 November 1937) is an English film director and producer. He is best known for directing the science fiction horror film ''Alien'' (1979), the neo-noir dystopian film ''Blade Runner'' (1982), the road adventure film ''Thelma & Louise'' (1991), the historical drama film ''Gladiator'' (2000), the war film ''Black Hawk Down'' (2001), and the science fiction film ''The Martian'' (2015).

Beginning his career in advertising, where he honed his filmmaking skills by making inventive mini-films for television commercials, Scott's work is known for its atmospheric and highly concentrated visual style. Though his films range widely in setting and period, they frequently showcase memorable imagery of urban environments, spanning 2nd-century Rome (''Gladiator''), 12th-century Jerusalem (''Kingdom of Heaven''), Medieval England (''Robin Hood''), contemporary Mogadishu (''Black Hawk Down''), or the futuristic cityscapes of ''Blade Runner'' and distant planets in ''Alien'', ''Alien: Covenant'', ''Prometheus'', and ''The Martian''. Several of his films are also known for their strong female characters.

Scott has been nominated for three Academy Awards for Directing, which he received for ''Thelma & Louise'', ''Gladiator'', and ''Black Hawk Down''. ''Gladiator'' won the Academy Award for Best Picture, while Scott himself received a nomination in that category for the 2015 film ''The Martian''. In 1995, both Scott and his brother Tony received a BAFTA for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema. In 2003, he was knighted for services to the British film industry. In a 2004 BBC poll, he was ranked at No. 10 on the list of most influential people in British culture. He received an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art in London in 2015, and the BAFTA Fellowship for lifetime achievement in 2018. Provided by Wikipedia
