Filmmaker Peter Jackson has been knighted in his native New Zealand's New Year's Honors list.

The Lord of the Rings director will become Sir Peter Jackson in 2010 after his latest honor was sanctioned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, who is New Zealand's head of state. Jackson is largely credited for single-handedly turning New Zealand into an international film destination. (KL/WNWC/IG)
