Emily Blunt later shared her perspective on Krasinski’s reaction, saying to reporters backstage, “I think he probably was as shocked as I was because it was very unexpected. (It was) certainly not something I had planned for. I was pretty blown away.”
A Heartfelt Acceptance Speech
During her acceptance speech, Emily Blunt made sure to credit her husband, John Krasinski, who not only stood by her side but also wrote and directed the thriller “A Quiet Place.” She expressed her gratitude, saying, “I am going to share this completely with my husband, John, because the entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly.”

So you didn’t really have an option, but thank you.” She also debunked any rumors of marital strain due to their professional collaboration, stating, “People were like, ‘You’re going to be divorced by the end of it,’ when actually we were so much closer.”
In a previous interview, Emily Blunt had also shared insights into their working dynamic, revealing that they found moments of levity during the intense filming of “A Quiet Place.” She noted, “The drives to work and from work were really amazing times, where we listened to music, and we talked about the day, and downloaded.”
