London: “Grease” star Olivia Newton-John, who received a damehood for “services to charity, cancer research, and entertainment”, was named among more than 1,000 others in the UK’s New Year Honours 2020 list.

Directors Sam Mendes (“1917”) and Steve McQueen (“12 Years A Slave”) were knighted, “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight was named as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, Queen drummer Roger Taylor and Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody were named Officers of the Order of the British Empire, and “Caribbean Queen” singer Billy Ocean was named Member of the Order of the British Empire.
