If there was anything to glean from yesterday's swank lunch in honor of Walt Disney Pictures' "Saving Mr. Banks" at Manhattan's Four Seasons Restaurant, it was that Oscar-winner Emma Thompson knows how to own a room. Glowing as she entered the event, which was hosted by the Peggy Siegal Company, Thompson worked the crowd before sitting down to eat, reminiscing fondly with Academy members and the like about playing crotchety "Mary Poppins" author P.L. Travers in the crowd-pleasing drama that's sure to earn another Academy Award nomination for the actress.

But the highlight of the two-hour event came once everyone finished their lunch and Thompson took to the front of the room and proceeded to lead a "Mary Poppins" sing-along, at one point inviting "Crash" director Paul Haggis up to join her. Watch Thompson and Haggis sing "Chim Chim Cher-ee" below:


And on page 2, watch her lead a sing-along to "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "Let's Go Fly a Kite."
