Mirren wins plaudits for portrayal of the Queen Elizabeth II

British actress Helen Mirren has been honoured at the Venice Film Festival.

She has been named Best Actress for her portrayal the current British monarch in Stephen Frear's 'The Queen'.

"It's always terrifying to send your movie out for its first little toddling steps. It's an incredible honour to have our film takes its first steps here."

However it did not win the coveted Golden Lion prize for best film of the festival.

The film deals with Queen Elizabeth's reaction to the huge outpouring of public grief at the death of Princess Diana in 1997.
