Queen Elizabeth given honorary film award

  • Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was honored with one of Britain's most prestigious entertainment awards on Thursday for her patronage of the film and television industry.

    Actor and director Kenneth Branagh presented the 86-year-old monarch with an honorary BAFTA award, the British equivalent of Hollywood's Oscars, for her support since coming to the throne in 1952.

    The Queen demonstrated this last year when she starred alongside actor Daniel Craig in a James Bond spoof as part of the opening ceremony for the London Olympics.
