Wow. Many many congratulations to Sir Christopher! This is a tremendous honour.  And I personally think it's an even HIGHER honour than an Academy Award. This from the British Cinema, which is obviously where he is most known, and just look at the impressive list of people he is among the ranks of! He truly deserves it and this is indeed very wonderful. Congratulations again!
