Another day, another Mary Poppins Returns screening – not that we’re complaining! Meanwhile, the film continues to make steady box office progress, and is closing in on $300m worldwide–with its theatrical debut in Hong Kong and Japan set for later this month. We’re still keeping everything crossed for Emily’s first Academy Award nomination, though.
We’ve added some adorable photos of Emily, joined by her good friend Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds at a private reception for Mary Poppins Returns and director Rob Marshall in New York City last night (Jan 10). Enjoy!
Yesterday marked the 8th AACTA International Awards, held at the Mondrian in Los Angeles. It was also a busy day for Emily, who stopped into the AFI Awards, was honored with a Creative Impact Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival before attending the AACTA Awards, where she was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for A Quiet Place. Although she didn’t walk away with the award (Nicole Kidman was a worthy winner for Boy Erased), we have to say Emily was the true star of this January 4th. Take a look at this beautiful look in the gallery.
On Thursday (Jan 3), Emily was in attendance at the 30th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival to receive the Ensemble Performance Award, alongside the cast of Mary Poppins Returns. Enjoy the beautiful photos!
Tomorrow night, Emily and the cast of Mary Poppins Returns will make a very special appearance on UK talk show The Graham Norton Show. Many of you will no doubt remember some of her previous visits to the show, alongside co-stars such as Tom Cruise, Jessica Chastain, and most recently to promote A Quiet Place alongside husband John Krasinski. From the clips released so far, it looks as if this appearance will be just as memorable and hilarious. You can view them using the “read more” option. I’ve also added some photos from the taping to the gallery. Enjoy!
Our favorite Hollywood power couple at last have a joint magazine cover! Emily and John are featured on the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, where they discuss their collaboration for A Quiet Place, individual projects and balancing their marriage with parenthood and fame. Did I also mention the photoshoot? I don’t really need to.. I’m sure many of you have seen it already, but if not, you can now view it in the gallery.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – One of the defining moments in Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s marriage happened unexpectedly during a cross-country flight in early 2017. Krasinski was on his way to meet with executives at Paramount about a script he had co-written and hoped to direct and star in — the high-concept thriller A Quiet Place. Blunt was immersed in preparations for a daunting new acting project, as the magical nanny in Disney’s sequel to one of its most beloved films, Mary Poppins. The couple had two healthy young daughters, a new home in Brooklyn and careers that were thriving — separately.
It seemed like a good idea to leave it that way. So Krasinski, after secretly writing a part for his wife, abandoned his plan to ask her to play it. “I decided the safest thing to do was just have this experience on my own,” says Krasinski of making A Quiet Place. He was afraid Blunt would say no — or, in a possibility that seemed even more mortifying, that she would say yes out of a sense of wifely duty rather than genuine enthusiasm. “I didn’t want this to be the one job that she was like, ‘Listen, I don’t know if I love this, but I love you, so I’ll do it.’ ”
Yesterday was a busy day for Emily on the promotional trail for Mary Poppins Returns, and she made another stop at the SiriusXM studios to discuss the film with Jess Cagle–this time joined by Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer (alongside the amazing Lin-Manuel Miranda). The video is likely to be uploaded very soon, so we will of course keep you posted on that. Enjoy the photos!
