Helen Mirren, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Dame Helen Mirren is one of the most honored and awarded women in entertainment today. Shortly after having her hands and feet captured in cement outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre, she reminisced about some of her honors on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' (Weeknights, 12:35AM ET on NBC).

She remembered how, in the UK when she became Dame Helen Mirren, it involved not only dressing nicely, but also having lessons in proper etiquette and curtsying. It was a formal event at the palace. Another moment was her Oscar win in 2006 for 'The Queen.'

"I'm standing on the stage in front of all those movie stars holding an Oscar in my hand and they're all applauding and it's like this incredible dream come true," she said.

And now she's immortalized on Hollywood Blvd. "They're going to be there forever." It's a tremendously flattering honor, but it certainly didn't match the grandeur of her other examples.

Mirren even got on the floor to show how it's done. Something about an Oscar-winning actress on her hands and knees just doesn't scream "dignified" in the same way as seeing them up on that stage, or in a royal dinner.
