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!
