Olivera "Olja" Bećković (Serbian Cyrillic: Оља Бећковић; born 1 May 1964) is a Serbian journalist, actress and television presenter.
In the months following her removal from B92, Bećković became a recipient of the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur award, which was handed to her on 30 April 2015 at a ceremony in the French embassy in Belgrade. At the ceremony, the French ambassador in Serbia Christine Moro explained the accolade as being awarded to Bećković for "her exceptional professional path, courage, and fearlessness" while adding that by awarding Bećković "France is also extolling the journalistic profession as a whole". In February 2015, with the announcement of the Légion d'honneur award going to Bećković, Informer, a pro-Vučić daily tabloid edited and partially owned by Dragan J. Vučićević, framed the news item as a "French political attack on the Serbian PM Aleksandar Vučić".
During her late teens, Bećković was briefly married to theater director Nenad Ilić.
During early 1990s she married Vlada Višnjić (1967–1999) and got a son Luka with him in 1994. Vlada, her husband, died in 1999, at age 32.
