In another installment of award season splendor, the Screen Actors Guild Awards handed out their winnings last night. "Black Panther," "This Is Us" and Glenn Close came out at the top, but other notable performers and projects were aptly recognized.
One of those ended up being Emily Blunt, who was double nominated for both "A Quiet Place" and "Mary Poppins Returns." Blunt, who was also nominated for her supporting role in "A Quiet Place" during the MTV Movie and TV Awards and the People's Choice Awards last year, was finally selected as a winner against a crew of all-stars: Amy Adams, Margot Robbie, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz.
(Friendly reminder that she's also been nominated for "Mary Poppins Returns" six times so far, to no avail.)
The SAG gave Blunt her platform, but they also gave her husband John Krasinski his platform to be the most adorable human in that room.
Krasinski wrote, directed and also starred in "A Quiet Place" -- he was essentially behind the call to cast Blunt opposite him, and boy did it work out. They say not to mix business with pleasure, but in this case the pairing couldn't have been better.
Some internet trolls weren't as happy with Krasinski's (or...Jim Halpert's?) other work like "Jack Ryan," though.
Anyway, while Blunt surely deserved her win and made an awesome and digestible speech -- you know, the kind that doesn't drag on or dip into philosophical sh*t that not even the speaker really believes -- we couldn't take our eyes off of Krasinski. Blunt thanked her husband for giving her the experience of working with him, which she said "completely pierced [her] heart;" she called him a stunning filmmaker and emphasized how lucky she felt to make the movie with him.
And as if that wasn't cute enough, Krasinski's emotion was on full display and it pierced all of our hearts.
I couldn't help feeling a little reminiscent for Krasinski's famous portrayal of Jim Halpert in "The Office" -- the facial expressions and head-shaking he was giving off during Blunt's speech threw it right back to Jim's quiet and humble demeanor.
Too. Much. Cute.
