James Bond has proved to be a very popular movie among people. Daniel Craig and other actors have also played the best roles in all the parts of the movie. Actor Daniel Craig, who plays fictional detective James Bond in the movie, has been made the Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George (CMG) on the UK's annual New Year Honours list. These honours usually handed over to real-life spies and diplomats, are also seen in the 007 fictional characters of writer Ian Fleming in his books. Daniel, from Chester, England, has been recognized for his 'movie and theatre services.'
The 53-year-old actor's CMG came out soon after the release of No Time to Die, in which he has been last seen playing the role of a famous spy. The movie has become one of the highest-grossing movies at the box office in 2021. In September, he had also been made honorary commander in the British Royal Navy, ranked similar to Bond in movies. However, the honour was not liked by some who called it 'ridiculous.' On Twitter, a fan complained that "the whole thing is a bloody joke and it's been made like an even more bloody joke." Each other questioned whether the officers were "confusing facts with imagination." Others have been more supportive of the idea, appreciating their "Sense of Humor" powers.
The CMG order of decency was established in 1818 and whose holders are appointed through Monarch and holders will be able to wear it by hanging it on a ribbon around their necks on formal occasions. It is also usually provided to those providing exceptional or important non-military service in a foreign country, including diplomats or spies. Queen Elizabeth II had met Daniel famous when she shot a stunning segment for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics at Buckingham Palace, including taking Bond with 95-year-old Monarch.
The producers of Bond films, Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, have also been named in the New Year's Honours list released on Friday for their contributions to movies and dramas, both of which have been made Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).
