Filmmaker Christopher Nolan receives a knighthood


Christopher Nolan recently won an Academy Award. (politeness: the Academy)


British-American filmmaker Christopher Nolan, fresh from his Oscar win for historical drama Oppenheimer, receives a knighthood from Great Britain for services to film. His wife and film producer Emma Thomas will receive a damehood, the female equivalent of a knighthood, the British government said Thursday in a honors list recommended by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, which also included conservative politicians and technology industry leaders.

Oppenheimer, a blockbuster biopic about the race to build the first atomic bomb, won seven Academy Awards earlier this month, including the Best Picture trophy and Nolan’s first Academy Award for Best Director. His career includes other highly regarded films such as Interstellar, Inception, Dunkirk and the Batman trilogy.

Nolan wrote the screenplay Oppenheimer and produced the film with Thomas.

Demis Hassabis, the CEO of Google’s DeepMind, was knighted, among others. Other figures from the world of artificial intelligence honored include Matthew Clifford, an AI advisor to the UK government, and entrepreneur Ian Hogarth, chairman of the AI ​​Safety Institute, both of whom were awarded CBEs (Commander of the Order of the British Empire.)

Billionaire businessman and Conservative Party donor Mohamed Mansour received a knighthood for business, charity and political service.

Sunak also presented awards to his Conservative lawmakers – with knighthoods for Philip Davies and Mark Spencer and damehoods for Tracey Crouch and Harriett Baldwin. Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos received an honorary CBE for services to the creative industries.
