Sonnenfeld received an Emmy Award in 1985 for his camera work on the TV special "Out of Step" and received Clio Awards for directing the Nike "Dog" spot and a series of commercials for Isuzu and Reebok.

In 1991, Sonnenfeld made his directing debut with the hit comedy "The Addams Family." He followed it with "For Love or Money," the successful sequel "Addams Family Values" (in which he also played a small role), the critical and popular triumph "Get Shorty" (which he also executive produced and appeared in as a doorman) and the blockbuster 1997 summer hit "Men in Black," which starred Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
