Veteran Director Ridley Scott was awarded a Fellowship at the British Academy Film Awards, organized by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), here on Monday.

He received the award from the Duke of Cambridge who said Scott's films were amongst "his personal favourites".

"A director and producer whose work has engaged audiences for 40 years, and whose creativity continues to inspire the vital next generation of talent... please welcome to the stage, Sir Ridley Scott".

The fellowship - which is awarded annually - is the highest accolade bestowed by Bafta on an individual.

In Sir Ridley's acceptance speech, he thanked his former teachers at the then West Hartlepool College of Art, now Cleveland College of Art and Design.

Ridley was knighted for his "services to the British film industry" in 2003.

He has been at the helm of more than 25 feature films, including Hannibal (2001), Black Hawk Down (2001), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), American Gangster (2007), Body of Lies (2008) and Prometheus (2012).

"His passion and unrelenting pursuit of excellence have provided cinema goers with a tantalising range of films, including Alien, Gladiator, Thelma and Louise and Blade Runner".
