Emma, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, is the 1996 film adaption of the classic Jane Austen novel of the same name. Directed by Douglas McGrath, the film chronicles a year in the life of Emma Woodhouse (Paltrow), who thinks of herself as a successful matchmaker. Emma wrongly takes credit for the budding romance between her governess (Greta Scacchi) and Mr. Weston (James Cosmo), and believes she can succeed as Cupid again. Emma sets her sights on Mr. Elton (Alan Cumming) and Harriet Smith (Toni Collette). After Emma and Harriet become close friends, Emma discourages her from accepting a marriage proposal from Robert Martin (Edward Woodall), an old family friend. When Mr. Elton professes his love for Emma, she realizes the trouble she has created. Rachel Portman won the Academy Award for Best Score for her work on the film, making her the first female composer to win an Award in said category.
