Hugh Grant Awarded BFI Fellowship

55 year old British star of movies such as Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) and Love Actually (2003), Hugh Grant, was last night (22nd Feb 2016) awarded with the British Film Institute’s highest accolade, the BFI Fellowship.

Pictured on the right, Grant was given the honour for what the British Film Institute described as “his outstanding contribution to film” as both an actor and a producer. The award was presented by the co-chairman of Working Title, Eric Fellner, at the BFI’s Chairman Dinner hosted by BFI Chair Greg Dyke (pictured left).

Upon being bestowed the honour, Grant declared: “This is such a lovely surprise and a great honour, and I’m very grateful to the BFI for thinking of me.”
