Emma Thompson gets Hollywood star

Emma Thompson has been enshrined in concrete outside the historic Pig 'n Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 51-year-old actress was presented with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, two weeks ahead of the August 20 US release of her latest film, Nanny McPhee Returns.

Nanny castmate Maggie Gyllenhaal and House star Hugh Laurie, a pal of Emma's since their university days, were on hand for the midday ceremony.

Emma won an Academy Award for her leading role as Margaret Schlegel in 1992's Howard's End. She won a second Oscar in 1996 for best adapted screenplay for Sense and Sensibility, for which she also received a best actress nomination.
