Along with everyone in our industry, BAFTA Los Angeles is coming to terms with the loss of one of our dearest friends.
A true gentleman, Tony Scott was also a powerhouse in film and television, and one of the most accomplished and talented filmmakers of our time.
His exemplary, unique body of work has, and will continue to, inspire millions of filmmakers and film viewers around the world.
Tony has proved himself an artist adept at a wide variety of genres and styles, never falling into easy classification, balancing the demands of character and action with incredible panache. Both his work and his personal contribution to our industry will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
