Liam Gallagher is among the high profile names from the entertainment world to garner a plaudit in the Queen’s New Year Honors list, published December 31, 2011.
Former Oasis frontman and now Beady Eye bandleader, and Talking Heads and record producer Steve Lillywhite (producing the Beady Eye album) all find themselves with a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).
Helena Bonham Carter, who portrayed Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech, has been made a CBE in the list.
Also honored with a CBE is comedian Ronnie Corbett and the Australian born entertainer and writer Clive James.
Television presenter Lorraine Kelly and Sky News war reporter Alex Crawford, both working on the small screen in very different circumstances, are made OBEs (Officer of the British Empire).
Peter Bazalgette, the veteran television executive who brought Big Brother to the U.K. during his stint as Endemol chief executive, garners a knighthood in the list while Who Wants to Be A Millionaire creator and Celador Entertainment founder Paul Smith takes a CBE.
Actor David Harewood, whose resume boasts Blood Diamond in which he starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, is awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire).
The New Year Honors list aims to recognize outstanding achievement and service across the whole of the U.K.

The ex Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher hates the Queen (is there anything that man doesn't hate?). The best conceivable English model Nathalie said she's a very intelligent person. Too intelligent for him, he's always proud to be ignorant.
Just like Noel fans: they appreciate him 'cause they're not very intelligent.
We Oasis fans were known for knowing (sorry for the pun :) everything about them. People even mocked us, accusing us that we listen to Oasis only (not true). An Oasis fan can also say that Noel is an overrated asshole or that Liam is an idiot, because we know everything about them. At least with this 2011, I discovered that I'm not a Noel fan (anymore). Those new Noel kids are not Oasis fans as they say. They may be Noel fans, but they're not Oasis fans.
Music, fashion, cinema... he's very busy. This about music: Liam Gallagher has been officially credited as being among the hardest-working artists in showbiz by a music industry body.
The Beady Eye frontman made it into the top 10 of PRS For Music's annual poll, which finds out which acts have headlined the most major venues throughout the year.
Olly Murs and JLS came out joint top of the poll, while Take That were in third place in the poll.
Barney Hooper from PRS For Music explained: Performing live and going on tour are fundamental to any artist and is a great way for them to engage with their fans. Congratulations to both JLS and Olly Murs and all the songwriters who they have worked with to create the music that so many people are enjoying.
JLS hailed their nod as a "great achievement", while Murs said it was a "real honour" to come out joint top of the list.
Meanwhile, Gallagher has not yet commented on his band's top ten placing, which came as a result of numerous headline dates around the UK and the rest of the world with Beady Eye.
You can win the NME Awards ceremony in London, by voting for Beady Eye as Best British Band, Best International Band, Best New Band, Best Live Band, Best Album, Best Track (In the Bubble with a Bullet), Best Video, Best dancefloor filler (Bring the light-The roller), yeah all of them, Hero of the year, Villain of the year (Noel Gallagher), Worst Album (NOEL'S), Worst Band (NOEL'S), Best Album Artwork (NO NOEL, this is sure), Best Band Blog (oasisBlues), Music Moment of the year (Liam wearing the Italian flag for the whole Milan gig), etc., Beady Eye also Best Solo Artist :) so they could get at least one.
