Sir Ridley Scott was also given the 35th Directors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Christopher Nolan, Billy Crudup and Michael Fassbender.

Fassbender described Scott as, "direct, generous, loyal, competitive ... and a bit of a loner who prefers the company of dogs to most people."

Ridley Scott said, "I'm not going to talk about politics because there have been a lot of references to politics tonight and I'm best off not talking about it."

Only by Alien and Blade Runner already deserves it. Two masterpieces that are total reference in the genre, besides other so many great films that have directed, of course. One of the best directors in active, and hopefully so for many years.

The Duellists is fantastic. Beautiful.

Yep, its is. And because of Harvey Keitel it´s even more. Love that actor.

I also love Keith Carradine, they were great butting heads in that film.

Yes! The Duellists is a masterpiece too, Ridley's award winning debut, and it was masterful, as evidenced by the epilogue scene alone -

Glad to see Ridley awarded by DGA. His career hasn't been dominated with sci-fi genre,  six(?) where he is director or producer, but very few on DGA's Lifetime Achievement Award list have done as much as he has in sci-fi......other than maybe Spielberg who also received DGA's LAA .

He did a good job on Alien and that is a high award getting something like that.
