You forgot to say Pippa Ross.

None of them played Pippa Ross? 

I’m very confused... 🤷‍♂️

I really don’t understand the Order of Australia - there are different levels but they all get called the same thing? Or the reports don’t distinguish anyway.

Olivia Newton-John got an AC, but what about the rest of them?

The order is divided into a general and a military division. The five levels of appointment to the order in descending order of seniority have been:

  1. Knight and Dame of the Order of Australia (AK and ADdiscontinued, original quota of 4 per annum);
  2. Companion of the Order of Australia (AC – quota of 35 per annum);
  3. Officer of the Order of Australia (AO – quota of 140 per annum);
  4. Member of the Order of Australia (AM – quota of 365 per annum);and
  5. Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM – no quota).

Honorary awards at all levels may be made to deserving non-citizens – these awards are made additional to the quotas.

Thanks - I read that online, but I mean whereas in the UK we get told who is getting CBE, MBE, OBE or KBE/DBE, most Aussie reports just say Order of Australia and not which level.
