Liza Minnelli recently received a new recognition when she was ranked as an "officier" in France's Legion of Honor.
By the way, this is what she said upon receiving the award… and you can just HEAR her saying it, too:
"I’m honored!… I’m totally in love with all of you! To stand in this room in front of all of you, my God! This is my dream come true!"
Observers say they hadn't seen that much gushing since [oh, hell…. write your own joke] [Source]
