12-Jun-2010 (one comment)

Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta Jones has been appointed a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

The Welsh star is honoured alongside actress Sophie Okonedo and Midsomer Murders actor John Nettles, who are both given OBEs.

Writer Ronald Harwood, who won 2003's best adapted screenplay Oscar for The Pianist, receives a knighthood.

Veteran Coronation Street stars Eileen Derbyshire and Barbara Knox gain MBEs in the soap's 50th anniversary year.

Derbyshire, who plays Emily Bishop, made her first appearance in 1961, while Knox (Rita Sullivan) has been a regular since 1972.

I would understand if the award was from the British Geriatrics Society for marrying old Mikey for money. But seems they give out these awards to anybody these days.
