Emily Blunt shocked Hollywood and herself when she took home the Screen Actors Guild award for Female Actor in a Supporting Role for “Quiet Place.”
The British actress was up against Emma Stone (The Favourite), Rachel Weisz (The Favourite), Margot Robbie (Mary Queen of Scots), and Amy Adams (Vice).
In her speech, Emily thanked her husband and co-star John Krazinski, who also directed the film.
“I’m so moved and completely at a loss for words and unprepared. I’m going to share this completely with my husband John Krazinski,” she said. “Because the entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly. You are a stunning filmmaker. I’m so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you. 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.”
She went on to talk about her two children with John. “Thank you to the two little poems in our life, out daughter Hazel and Violet who will have to be at least 45 before they can see this film. But they’ll be proud of you nonetheless.”
The camera panned to John and Emily spoke of about their work together and tears began to well in the actors eyes. Emily and John married in July 2010 in a private ceremony in Italy and have two children, Violet and Hazel.
