Yesterday Dec. 30th, British actors Idris Elba and David Oyelowo were on Queen Elizabethâ€™s New Yearâ€™s Honors list and both received OBEs for their services on the big screen.
â€œAwards and honors come in all shapes and sizes and all as significant as the other. But this is beyond special as it comes from Queen and country, and I couldnâ€™t be more proud for receiving this right now. What a year. On me head son!â€ Idris said in a statement.
â€œTo be honored by the Queen in this way having been aided by her sonâ€™s charity feels like a beautiful full-circle moment,â€ David Oyelowo said
