Hollywood Walk of Fame

Walk of Fame

Thompson is presented with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her work in the category of Motion Pictures. Friends Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Laurie attend the ceremony in support of Thompson. Laurie:

Everything she did just oozed talent. She said talented things, she wore talented clothes, she rode a talented bicycle, she made talented spaghetti. She is a truly remarkable person, a very good friend, and I could not be prouder.

Wins Oscar


Thompson wins the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Margaret Schlegel in James Ivory’s Howard’s End. Anthony Hopkins presents the award.

Ladies and gentlemen, I really don’t know how to thank the Academy, not only for this [referring to the Oscar], but also for this view. Because it’s overwhelming to see so many faces who’ve entertained and influenced me and thrilled me all my life, and it just takes my breath away . . . . And finally I would like, if I may, to dedicate this Oscar to the heroism and the courage of women, and to hope that it inspires the creation of more true screen heroines to represent them. Thank you so much.
