Emily Blunt won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday night, for her quiet role in A Quiet Place. The horror film, if you’ll remember, was directed by her husband, John Krasinski, who starred alongside her.
Onstage, she cracked some light marital humor about working professionally with Krasinski: “Thank you for giving me the part. You would have been in major trouble if you hadn’t.”
But backstage, Blunt assuaged any fears that her marriage was ever actually in danger. “My favorite thing about shooting A Quiet Place for sure was working with John,” Blunt told reporters in the press room. “You go into this process not knowing what it’s going to be like. A lot of people were like ‘You’re going to be divorced by the end of it,’ but we were so much closer. I think the discovery of how we collaborated and could create something together was just so special.”
This is what it’s like to married to Jim from The Office. Asked why he couldn’t stop standing up and applauding for her as she accepted her award, Blunt said “I’m going to have to ask him.”
Megan Mullally, who is 60 and needs to hand over her skincare routine ASAP, hosted the SAG Awards and wore an Alexander McQueen dress, which she bought herself online. HELL YEAH! Mullally told Access Hollywood that “the major designers are not interested in sending me any dresses,” even for a major televised event. She added: “I said I am literally hosting. There is a 100 percent chance that I will be on camera. But people were like, ‘No, no thanks.’”
Mullally qualified that McQueen did send over two dresses, but unfortunately, “they didn’t work out.”
“I think it’s funny,” Mullally added, “but I think it’s interesting for people to know that, because I think everybody in the general public thinks well everybody is getting dresses thrown at them left and right, but that’s not actually the case.”
I think Mullally is perfect and should host more award shows generally. I’d watch. Two weeks ago she was on The Bachelor, for reasons I still don’t totally get, but it’d be great if they could bring her back every week.
There can be 100 people in the room at Andy Cohen’s baby shower, but only one is John Mayer surrounded by housewives. (Swipe all the way to the end to see the pic, it’s worth it.)
