Look at his contribution to the Film industry and the Arts, is he going to be overlooked like Niven, mason and Howard? He TOTALLY deserves it.

Actually, I agree with it. I think he deserves the recognition.  He's way too overlooked.  I have thought about the same thing - recommending him for Knighthood - but I think that's essentially up to The Queen.  I don't think people make recommendations to her.  As humble as he is, I'm not sure if he would go for it, but I think he would feel honored that someone thought to make such a gesture on his behalf.  Of course, I don't know him beans from Adam - I'm guessing; however, I think he would really appreciate it.

That would be fantastic. "Sir David Warner"--has a nice ring!

But if not a knighthood, why not even an OBE?  He's made countless contribution to English entertainment--and, was he not THE Hamlet of his day?

I agree! He is Knight in his heart! So he must be Sir really.

I think one way we can do it is to write to the Queen and ask her what her opinion is, and if she has she seen (X, Y, Z) movie of his, etc.  I think that would at least get the proverbial ball rolling in the right direction.  I think it's worth a shot...  What do you all think?

I've gotten the impression from interviews that he's not a big fan of awards at all, so while I'm sure it'd be flattering it doesn't seem like something he'd go for.


Disclaimer: As versed as I am in gleaning information from interviews, this is speculation so take it with a grain of salt. Or possibly a heaping bag of it.

You are right, he is not a fan of awards, but he is a big artist, no doubt. And logically deserves to be Sir de jure, not only de facto)

Hi Swift. You´re definetely right. I think, he just tries to make a good job, nothing else. I also heard and read interviews where he told about his opinion about awards. He used to do his job like any other people in the world do their´s. That´s absolutely ok.

 

Carry on doing your thing, David!!!! That´s what we want to see!

I wouldn't object to him being knighted, obviously. But if I were going to campaign for something, it would be for more awesome roles. (Personally I'd really like to see him get a guest starring role on Chuck at least once. Also, Doctor Who of course.)
