Well, that looks like a varied and enjoyable career CV in a specialised part of the entertainment industry,
daresay very satisfying & rewarding in itself - creatively and remunatively...

But is it really any more deserving of public & civic awarded recognition
than, say for example, my old mum who retired after a lifetime working in OAP care homes.
Washing and wiping private parts & arses of infirm and incontinent senior citizens day in and day out;
let alone holding their hands and comforting them on their death beds
whilst the families who dumped them there were too busy or far away...???

Now my mum would probably piss her self laughing at the idea
of a medal and a formal title
and getting all dressed up for a royal tea party

- but despite being a commited lefty since the end of World war 2
she'd be well chuffed to meet the queen and have a sneaky snoop round her garden, kitchen, and bathrooms........

Probably even be first to volunteer to help her majesty clean herself up in the toilet if need arose....
