Renowned actress Cate Blanchett and Qantas boss Alan Joyce are among almost 900 important Australians recognised for Queens Birthday Honours this year.
This year’s list, which acknowledges a range of people from scientists to lawyers, also features the likes of election analyst Antony Green.
Mr Green, of New South Wales, was awarded an Officer (AO) in the general Division, for his “distinguished service to the broadcast media as an analyst and commentator for state and federal elections, and to the community as a key interpreter of Australian democracy.”
While Hollywood star Cate Blanchett was recognised with a Companion (AC) in the General Division, for her “eminent service to the performing arts as an international stage and screen actor, through seminal contributions as director of artistic organisations, as a role model for women and young performers, and as a supporter of humanitarian and environmental causes.”
Joining her in the same category was Qantas’ Mr Joyce for both his work in the aviation transport industry and stance on gender equity and inclusion and diversity.
He also is a big supporter of Indigenous education.
