Sense and Sensibility is a 1995 British period drama film directed by Ang Lee. Actress Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay, which is based on the novel of the same name by English author Jane Austen. Thompson and Kate Winslet starred as the Dashwood sisters among a large ensemble cast. Columbia Pictures, a Sony Pictures Entertainment subsidiary, produced and released the film.[1][2][3] Sense and Sensibility was released to cinemas on 15 December 1995, and earned a total worldwide gross of $134,582,776.[4] Based on 51 reviews from film critics, the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes has calculated Sense and Sensibility '​s approval rating to be 98%, deeming it "certified fresh".[5]

Sense and Sensibility garnered various accolades following its release, ranging from the main cast's performances to Thompson's screenwriting. The adaptation received seven Academy Award nominations including the Academy Award for Best Film, though the sole win that night was for the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, the only time a person has earned Oscars for both acting and writing.[note 1][7][8][9] Thompson's screenwriting collected a further eleven accolades, including those given by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, Golden Globe Awards, and London Critics Circle. At the 49th British Academy Film Awards, Sense and Sensibility garnered twelve BAFTA nominations, ultimately coming away with three awards including the BAFTA Award for Best Film; Thompson and Winslet won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role and BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, respectively.

The cast also received numerous acting accolades. In addition to her writing credit, Thompson was recognised for her performance, and earned seven nominations. Winslet was recognised in categories for both lead and supporting actress, for instance winning the Evening Standard Award for Best Actress as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture. Other than the Academy Awards, the overall film garnered numerous nominations, ultimately winning the Boston Society of Film Critics Award for Best Film, Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Film, and Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, among other accolades. Sense and Sensibility received the most award recognition out of the many Austen adaptations of the 1990s.[10] MaryAnn Johanson of Film.com named it the fifth best film of 1995.[11] At the end of the award season, Sense and Sensibility came away with 30 awards out of a total of 60 nominations.
