A couple weeks after he picks up his lifetime achievement award
at GDC 2011
, Peter Molyneux will continue his award tour by picking up a similar accolade with the British Academy of Film and Televisions Arts' (BAFTA) Fellowship. He'll just have to swing by this year's GAME British Academy Video Games Awards
on March 16 -- or, they can surely just mail it to him if he's tired of being praised by that point.
The Fellowship is awarded for outstanding achievement and contribution to the industry through an individual's body of work. With series like Fable
and Dungeon Keeper
attached to his CV, it's not hard to see why the organization wants to give Molyneux another trinket for his collection. According to a BAFTA rep, previous winners include Will Wright, Nolan Bushnell, Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock and, last year's recipient, Shigeru Miyamoto
