Jane Austen Speaks (through Emma Thompson)

After Emma Thompson won the Golden Globe for best screenplay for Sense and Sensibility in 1995, she gave the following brilliant speech.

Like Ms. Thompson said, I owe my thanks and gratitude to the genius of Jane Austen. And I also wondered what Austen would make of all these sequels and movies based on her works. I do hope that she would be happy that her works had endured and that her characters continued to be admired and loved by readers through the centuries.
