During the Screen Actors Guild Awards, love is never far from the surface.
At the 2019 SAG Awards, all eyes were on John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as she won the supporting actress prize for their role in the movie A Quiet Place, in which they also co-starred.
The couple, who married in 2010, shared a tender embrace after Blunt’s name was called, and it went viral throughout the performance.
The Mary Poppins star told reporters backstage following their victory, “I think he was probably as astonished as I was since it was quite unexpected. It was definitely not something I had anticipated. I was really taken aback. His face was a little hazy for me because I can’t see without my glasses and am fully blind.
Blunt Thanked Krasinski in Her Victory Speech While Fighting Back Tears.
She gushed, “The whole experience of doing this with you has completely touched my heart immediately, and I am going to share this fully with my husband, John.” I appreciate you giving me the part. If you hadn’t, you would have been in serious danger. So you really didn’t have a choice, but thanks anyway.
In actuality, Krasinski had Blunt in mind for the part even before he finished writing it.
Not to mince words, but I believe Emily is the best actress we have, he told Deadline in December 2018. You always try to write with your ideal actor in mind because it helps you visualize the performance.
She has superpowers that I will never be able to understand, and I have seen firsthand when she has been the epitome of strength, motherhood, and fertility. It was all filtered through her when I was creating the persona. I thus thought, OK, this movie just got a whole lot easier when she said she would do it.

He gushed, “[Thank you to] my dear Leslie Bibb for reading scripts with me over the holidays. You have my undying love.
After Rockwell finished his speech, Bibb tenderly put her palm over her heart and said, “I love you.”
