The 45-year-old actor, whose performance as the temperamental Queen Anne in Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Favourite was lauded by both the critics and the audiences, has been made CBE (commander of the order of the British Empire). The awards will be given out by Queen Elizabeth II or a senior royal acting in her place during investitures at Buckingham Palace. The awards recognise the achievements of a wide range of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom and are the most high-profile awards given by the British monarch.
