Emma Thompson might not be the first person to come to mind when you think controversy.

But she shared an opinion on Sunday that landed her in some hot water!

Emma is a great mother, there's no denying that: hell, she took a year off from her a career to spend more time with her 14-year-old daughter Gaia Wise!

Look at this cute couple!

Emma Thompson took husband Greg Wise with her to the Jameson Empire Awards in London last night, and they were stupid handsome together!

Emma was infinitely classy in an ivory Maria Grachvogel sheath dress with a sexy cut-out in the back and an exposed zipper.

Meanwhile, her hubby kept it simple in a black suit but added some sex appeal by unbuttoning his white shirt. Rawr!

They've been married for 11 years and we hope they stay together forever!

Perez Reviews: Sweeney Todd - Starring Emma Thompson!

Is there anything Emma Thompson CAN'T do???

That's a serious question!

The multiple Academy Award-winning actress enchanted and impressed a jaded New York City audience on Thursday night not just with her superb acting skills but also with her equally superb singing voice!!!!!

The internationally adored Brit stars as Mrs. Lovett in the New York Philharmonic's production of Stephen Sondheim's classic Sweeney Todd, which has just three shows left! Do whatever you have to and MAKE SURE you get tickets to see this!!!!!!

We have never heard Emma Thompson sing before and she doesn't just sing well for a famous actor/Hollywood type. She more than holds her own with Broadway greats! And there were plenty in this production!

Our future boyfriend, Joy Armstrong Johnson, whom we previously saw in Hands On A Hardbody, was even better in Sweeney! Christian Borle was great, as he usually is! And….

Audra McDonald was a surprise cast addition as the Beggar Woman and she was supremely amazing! Her talent is on a whole other level!

Audra McDonald!!!!!!!!

Also a pleasant surprise was Bryn Terfel in the title role! He is a world-famous opera singer, but we were unsure of his acting chops - especially in an English production with dialogue. He was great!

Another pleasant surprise was Emma Thompson's tour-de-force comedic performance! Never before has Mrs. Lovett been so funny!

And yet another pleasant surprise was that this production, which we thought was going to be a concert version of the show, was so much more than that!

The actors didn't perform at podiums with binders in front of them. Each one had all their parts fully memorized and the show was fully staged - with costumes and props and the works!

What was also exceptionally special was hearing this iconic Sondheim score with the entire New York Philharmonic playing on stage with the actors! Exquisite!

And also exceptionally special was the augmented vocal chorus, much larger than you'd see in a traditional Broadway mounting of Sweeney.

Such lush sounds!

Such great singing!

Such great acting!

Such a great time!

So this is why she missed the Oscars!

Emma Thompson may have played London's worst pie-maker in Wednesday's opening night performance of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street, but early word is pretty sweet!

Emma is getting rave reviews for her Mrs. Lovett, the role originated by Angela Lansbury and made famous in the 2007 film by Helena Bonham Carter.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see gurl tearing off her dress and going crazy on that dough!

We have got to get tickets!

Emma Thompson Goes All Out In Houndstooth For The New York Philharmonic Spring Gala!

Emma Thompson covers up in houndstooth at the New York Philharmonic Spring Gala!

Ooh, we hardly ever see houndstooth on the red carpet!

Emma Thompson decided to give it a go Wednesday night at the New York Philharmonic Spring Gala before taking the stage to perform Sweeney Todd.

But it just wasn’t working for her. It actually reminded us of Glenn Close playing Cruella De Vil in the live action movie! All she was missing was a black streak in her hair!!

In all seriousness though, the wool coat was a little too frumpy for the HIGHlarious actress, though it looked super cozy!

Plus, it obstructed our view of her thigh-high boots!

Hmm. Maybe she’d have better luck sticking to one patterned piece than two??
