- Emily Blunt won her first Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday night for her role in “A Quiet Place.”
- She and her husband, John Krasinski, looked absolutely shocked when her name was announced.
- Blunt dedicated the award to Krasinski, who blew her a kiss from the crowd.
Emily Blunt won her first Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actress in “A Quiet Place” on Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. While she was shocked, her husband, John Krasinski, had the best reaction.
As Chris Pine called the 35-year-old actress’ name from the stage, Blunt was clearly surprised. She beat out fellow nominees Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone, and Rachel Weisz.
When the camera cut to Krasinski, he looked like a kid on Christmas morning, covering his mouth with his hands before embracing his wife. He also appeared to exclaim, “What!”
Blunt took the stage to thank and share her award with Krasinski, who directed and cowrote “A Quiet Place.”
“That truly has completely blown my slicked hair back. Thank you so, so, so much. I’m so moved and completely lost for words and unprepared,” Blunt said. “I am going to share this completely with my husband, John Krasinski, because the entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly.”
“You are a stunning filmmaker. I am so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you,” she continued. “Thank you for giving me the part. You would have been in major trouble if you hadn’t. So you didn’t really have an option, but thank you.”
On “The Graham Norton Show” last year, Blunt said she asked Krasinski if she could sack another actress from the film so she could do it instead.
“When I read the script, I really wanted to do it. John had already approached another actress – a good friend of mine – so I told him he had to ring her and sack her,” Blunt said.
Earlier on Sunday, Krasinski delighted fans when he tweeted a photo with Blunt and wrote, “Honored to be on the arm of this double nominee tonight!”
