Some of Hollywood's biggest stars honored British director Ridley Scott as he was handed the American Cinematheque Award, marking an illustrious career spanning five decades.Many of the stars of Scott's movies turned out at the glitzy Beverly Hills gala, including Matt Damon, Ben Kingsley, Noomi Rapace and Sigourney Weaver.The Swedish actress, who starred in Scott's 2012 sci-fi epic "Prometheus" and appears in its sequel "Alien: Covenant" next year, said her favorite Scott film was 1991 road movie "Thelma and Louise".Ridley's body of work – 24 movies in total – may be small compared to some filmmaking luminaries, but many are considered among the best films of their genre ever made.Each of those films was nominated at the Directors Guild of America Awards, while Scott finally won a trophy for his directing when "American Gangster" (2007) earned him a Golden Globe.His most recent work, the critically acclaimed box office smash "The Martian," starring Damon and Jessica Chastain, received two Golden Globes and seven Academy Award nominations.
