Make some noise! Emily Blunt has won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
Blunt, 35, was honored for her performance as Evelyn Abbott, a woman living with her family in a dystopian future in which monsters kill anyone who makes noise, in A Quiet Place. She costarred with real-life husband, John Krasinski, who also directed the film, and she thanked him in her acceptance speech, vowing to share her award with him.
“The entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly,” Blunt told Krasinski. “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!”
In an interview with EW, Blunt discussed the iconic “bathtub scene,” in which her character has to go through a painful labor — without making noise. “It’s so awful, isn’t it,” said Blunt, gleefully. “The good thing about it though was that John was like, we’re going to spend five days doing it and then we are done. He was very considerate because he knew it was going to be physically demanding. I said, let’s just do it then.” She laughs. “And then we were both toasted by it. Everyone on set was feeling rather fragile. The crew was really upset by it.”
The actress beat out fellow nominees Emma Stone (The Favourite), Rachel Weisz (The Favourite), Margot Robbie (Mary Queen of Scots), and Amy Adams (Vice).
