Miramax boss Harvey Weinstein has been made an honorary Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in a ceremony at his New York apartment.

Weinstein was presented with his cross by British Consul SIR PHILLP THOMAS on Monday (22NOV04) night, and used the occasion to criticise Walt Disney chief Michael Eisner's decision to sever ties with Miramax next November (05).

Weinstein said, "We have 65 BAFTAS, 75 Oscars, $2 billion in assets and hundreds of millions in profits. And, still, Michael Eisner won't renew my contract."
