Ridley Scott

Born in 1937 in South Shields, Durham, England, Ridley Scott began pursuing his interest in film while in college and went on to work for the BBC. He later founded his own commercial production company, Ridley Scott Associates, bringing on his younger brother, Tony Scott, to work with him.

After making his mark with the sci-fi standouts Alien (1979) and Blade Runner (1982), Scott was nominated for a directing Academy Award for Thelma & Louise (1991), and was again nominated for both Gladiator (2000) and Black Hawk Down (2001). Other notable films include Matchstick Men (2003), American Gangster (2007), Robin Hood (2010), Prometheus (2012), The Martian (2015) and All the Money in the World (2017).
