Emily Blunt wins SAG Award for A Quiet Place

Emily Blunt couldn’t hide her shock as she was honored for her work in A Quiet Place at the Screen Actors Guild  Awards on Sunday night. 

The British actress, 35, left her husband John Krasinski, 39, in tears with her heartfelt speech after being handed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role gong, marking her first ever SAG Awards win.

‘Oh my goodness me,’ an emotional Emily began her speech, while John cheered her from the star-studded audience at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. ‘Guys, that truly has completely blown my slicked hair back.’

‘Thank you so, so, so much. I am so moved and completely lost for words and unprepared,’ she added before thanking Krasinski, who also directed and co-wrote the script with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck.

‘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.’

Her husband Krasinski was visibly moved, remaining standing while his wife and co-star walked to the stage.

She also joked about the possibility of her husband not giving her the role of Evelyn Abbott in A Quiet Place.

‘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, so thank you.’

She thanked the couple’s daughters Hazel, four, and Violet, two, who she called, ‘two little poems in our life’, joking they’ll have to be, ‘at least 45 before they see this film.’

‘Thank you SAG, I am so honored. I appreciate this so much, thank you,’ she said, in concluding her speech. 

Emotional: John was left teary-eyed by his wife's heartfelt speech, which she said she wasn't prepared for. The actress called her husband 'a stunning filmmaker' before gushing she was 'so lucky to be with you'

Emily followed in her husband’s lead with her speech, with the filmmaker delivering his own emotional thank you to his wife when his film picked up the 2019 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie earlier this month.

‘I got to make a movie about a love story and a love letter to my kids,’ John said as Emily joined him on stage. ‘I got to do it with the love of my life by my side, so I’m pretty sure it doesn’t get much better than that.’ 

Blunt and Krasinski started dating in 2008 and they married in 2010, and while both are in-demand actors, A Quiet Place marked their first film as co-stars.

Emily previously revealed on The Graham Norton Show that she had to insist John fire another actress, who happened to be a ‘good friend’, to allow her to take the role. 

The actress explained she had initially been reluctant to appear in the film when her husband pitched it to her as she had just given birth to the couple’s second daughter, Violet, and was about to start filming Mary Poppins Returns, for which she was also nominated for a SAG Award on Sunday. 

Teamwork: '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,' she told her talented husband

‘We had just had our second child and I was about to do Mary Poppins and so I was in a sort of general feeling of joy, I didn’t know if I wanted to go towards the darkness of the pitch that he’d given me,’ she said.

She explained that she recommended a friend of hers for the role and John approached her. 

‘Then I read the script and I was like ‘you need to call her and fire her’,’ quipped Emily, who hastened to add that the couple are still friends with the unnamed actress.  

Thanking kids: She also thanked the couple's daughters Hazel, 4, and Violet, 2, who she called, 'two little poems in our life, joking they'll have to be, 'at least 45 before they see this film'

A Quiet Place  is set in a world where alien predators have invaded Earth, who hunt by sound, with Blunt and Krasinski playing a married couple trying to silently keep their children safe.

The film earned $188million at the domestic box office and $340.9million worldwide, from just a $17million budget. 

Paramount is already developing A Quiet Place 2, which Krasinski is writing and directing, with the filmmaker returning to star alongside his wife. 

Sunday’s win marks a win for Emily in a season of snubs for the acclaimed star, after she missed out on a Golden Globe win for Mary Poppins Returns and failed to even pick up any nominations at next month’s BAFTAs and Academy Awards. 

First movie: Blunt and Krasinski started dating in 2008 and they married in 2010, and while both are in-demand actors, A Quiet Place marked their first film as co-stars
