New Zealand musician, comedian, producer and actor Bret McKenzie has become an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
He received the award for services to music and film at Government House today from Governor General Sir Jerry Mateparae.
It follows his Academy Award earlier this year for his song 'Man or Muppet' which he wrote for the 2011 film The Muppets.
As one half of comedy duo Flight of the Conchords with Jemaine Clement, he also won a Grammy Award for the best comedy album in 2007 for The Distant Future.
