Miramax head Harvey Weinstein was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II, an honor which will be bestowed in a ceremony later this month.

Note to Harvey: The Brits are classy people, and you have to be on your best behavior with their Queen. Strangling the monarch of the British Empire and threatening to screw her out of her gross profit participation is a practice generally frowned upon in England.

Also, try to go light on the Affleck anecdotes. She's really tired of those.
