BAFTA Fellowship

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

BAFTA Fellowship
Awarded forIn recognition of outstanding achievement in the art forms of the moving image
CountryUnited Kingdom
Presented byBritish Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA)
First awarded1971

The BAFTA Fellowship, or the Academy Fellowship, is a lifetime achievement award presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in recognition of "outstanding achievement in the art forms of the moving image".[1] The award is the highest honour the Academy can bestow, and has been awarded annually since 1971.[2][3][4] Fellowship recipients have been mainly film directors, but some have also been awarded to actors, film and television producers, cinematographers, film editors, screenwriters and (since 2007) to contributors to the video game industry. People from the United Kingdom dominate the list, but it includes over a dozen U.S. citizens and several from other countries in Europe, though none of the latter have been recognized since 1996. Shigeru Miyamoto, in 2010, became the first citizen of an Asian country to receive the award.

The inaugural recipient of the award was filmmaker and producer Alfred Hitchcock. The award has been made posthumously to comedy pair Morecambe and Wise in 1999, and to Stanley Kubrick, who died that same year and was made a fellow in 2000.[5][6] The most recent recipient was British television journalist Kate Adie.[7]
