Thompson won a best actress Oscar for “Howards End” and was nominated for acting Oscars for “The Remains of the Day,” “In the Name of the Father” and “Sense and Sensibility.” She won a screenwriting Oscar for “Sense and Sensibility.”

 

“Emma Thompson is one of the world’s most respected talents for her versatility in acting as well as screenwriting. On Aug. 20, her current global hit, Universal Pictures’ ‘Nanny McPhee Returns,’ comes to the United States and Canada,” the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said on its Web site. “Thompson is currently writing a new film version of ‘My Fair Lady’ for Sony Pictures and starring, with Alan Rickman, in a flagship production of the poem ‘The Song of Lunch,’ by Christopher Reid, for the BBC.”
