John Krasinski had the sweetest reaction to Emily Blunt’s Best Supporting Actress win
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have been a power couple ever since they started dating in 2008, but, 10 years on, they had a monumental year together with the release of A Quiet Place. The pair got engaged in 2009, before they married in a private ceremony in Italy the following year. They now have two children together: Hazel, born in 2014, and Violet, born in 2016.
"I think my wife gets me. Not just to sound adorable, but the truth is she gets me more than anyone else has ever gotten me," Krasinski said in an interview with Playboy last year.
Even a decade into the relationship, they're inseparable, with Krasinski revealing that he always puts work aside to make sure he can see his family. While he was filming the Jack Ryan series in Montreal, his wife was filming Mary Poppins Returns in London - so he flew 6,000 miles to see her every weekend during the shoots.
"So if I'm honest, I was shooting 6,000 miles away from them, and I flew back every single weekend," he told People Magazine. "So [the kids] were with [Emily], and we always set up a base, and I always want the base to be with their mom, and I’ll do the flight time."
He's clearly as passionate about his wife and her work as he could be, revealing on The Ellen Show in December that he was in floods of tears watching her in the Mary Poppins sequel. And, after Blunt's recent success at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, he was clearly over the moon.
When her name was read out by presenting actor Chris Pine, Blunt yelled "what" in shock while her husband, sat next to her, gave her an excited hug before loudly cheering her on as she made her way to the stage.
"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 said in her acceptance speech.
"You are a stunning filmmaker. I am 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 really didn’t have an option, but thank you."
Blunt had some tough competition in the category of 'Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role' that night, going up against fellow nominees Margot Robbie (Mary Queen of Scots), Emma Stone and Rachel Wise (both for The Favourite), and Amy Adams (Vice).
You can imagine her surprise, considering horror movies rarely get showered in awards, but it was also a huge win for both the actress and her husband. In A Quiet Place, they acted as on-screen husband and wife, attempting to raise a family just as they are in real life. And with her husband sharing a screenwriting credit and sitting in the director's chair, it clearly meant a lot to them.
