She has already won two major awards, the Golden Globes and Screen Actor's Guild prizes for Best Actress and she has been nominated for a BAFTA (the British film awards) and an Oscar.
Cairo International Stadium
On January 20th 2006 the African Cup of Nations football tournament kicked off at Cairo International stadium in Egypt. Two days before the tournament we visited the stadium and were given a behind the scenes tour.
We're talking about and tasting some delicious Egyptian food as part of our focus on Egypt this month. Our reporter Yvonne Archer visits an Egyptian restaurant in London and tries out some wonderful dishes. The restaurant also offers its customers the chance to watch belly dancing, listen to music and even dance themselves.
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Mozart. He was born in Salzburg, Austria in January, 1756. Salzburg is making the most of this occasion. Austrian retailers have developed everything from Mozart drinks, yoghurt and sausages to Mozart perfume.
At Christmas time, it's always worth remembering that there are many countries where Christianity isn't the main religion. The official religion of the UK is Christianity, but here in London - one of the world's most multi-cultural cities - there are many non-Christians who also celebrate Christmas.
