If Emily Blunt could give advice to her younger self just getting a SAG card, she would tell her younger version to not watch too many movies.

“The main thing I’ve learned over the years is you have to be open,” said Blunt while speaking to reporters backstage after winning best female supporting actor for her role in “A Quiet Place.” ″Have experiences, soak up the world. Don’t watch too many movies even.”

Blunt said filming the birth scene was a “daunting” task.

“I would say emotionally it was the most daunting to do the whole birth scene,” she said. “We would shoot it for five days straight. I think that was probably the most daunting.”


Blunt said she was just as surprised to win her award as her husband John Krasinski, who directed and starred in the film.

“My favorite thing about ‘A Quiet Place’ for sure to was working with John,” she said. “A lot of people said, you’re going to be divorced before it’s over. They were wrong, it brought us closer.”
