– Mel Brooks is set to receive the BAFTA Fellowship, the British Academy’s highest honor. He will be presented with the fellowship at the upcoming BAFTA awards ceremony, taking place on February 12.
“I am not overwhelmed, but I am definitely whelmed by this singular honor,” said Brooks in a statement. “To be included among such iconic talents is absolutely humbling. In choosing me for the 2017 Fellowship I think that BAFTA has made a strangely surprising yet ultimately wise decision.”
Brooks joins a list of BAFTA Fellowship honorees including Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Sean Connery, Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick. Last year, Sidney Poitier was the recipient of the fellowship honor.
