Emily Blunt

Biography: When relative neophyte Blunt was nominated for two 2007 Golden Globes for a pair of antithetical performances - her searing work as a daughter at odds with her adulterous father in the TV-movie Gideon's Daughter and her delightfully over-the-top turn as a fashionista in the feature The Devil Wears Prada - she was just fulfilling her initial promise as one of her generation's most versatile players. Still a teen when she made her London stage debut in 2001's The Royal Family (opposite Dame Judi Dench and directed by Sir Peter Hall), the British actress earned the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Newcomer. Making an easy transition from stage to British television, she continued to impress in historical roles, first as an ancient warrior in Boudica and next as a doomed young wife in the drama Henry VIII. The silver screen summoned her, and she found success with a breakthrough performance as a manipulative privileged teenager in the British independent film My Summer ofWhen relative neophyte Blunt was nominated for two 2007 Golden Globes for a pair of antithetical performances - her searing work as a daughter at odds with her adulterous father in the TV-movie Gideon's Daughter and her delightfully over-the-top turn as a fashionista in the feature The Devil Wears Prada - she was just fulfilling her initial promise as one of her generation's most versatile players.

Making an easy transition from stage to British television, she continued to impress in historical roles, first as an ancient warrior in Boudica and next as a doomed young wife in the drama Henry VIII. The silver screen summoned her, and she found success with a breakthrough performance as a manipulative privileged teenager in the British independent film My Summer of Love (2005). Already an established starlet in her homeland, Blunt broke into Hollywood films with her scene-stealing turn in The Devil Wears Prada. In 2007, her career momentum stayed steady with supporting roles in Dan in Real Life, Charlie Wilson's War, and The Jane Austen Book Club, and she experienced another impressive triumph with her moving depiction of a queen-in-progress in The Young Victoria (2009). More award nominations found her, including a Golden Globe nod for Best Actress. Next, she put aside her royal costumes to play a reluctant crime-scene cleaner in the independent feature Sunshine Cleaning (2009) and then a corseted damsel in the horror flick The Wolfman (2010). In 2010, she married John Krasinski, and in that same year they co-starred together in Gulliver's Travels. The couple would also each appear in cameo roles in 2011's The Muppets, written and co-starring Jason Segel, with whom Blunt would co-star in the 2012 romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement and rounded out her 2012 with the Golden Globe-nominated Salmon Fishing in Yemen, romantic dramedy Your Sister's Sister and the sci-fi action thriller Looper. In 2014, she starred opposite Tom Cruise in the action-thriller Edge of Tomorrow and showed off her singing skills as the Baker's Wife in Into the Woods. The following year, she appeared in the Oscar-nominated Sicario, and in 2016, tackled the Snow White sequel The Huntsman: Winter's War and starred in the highly-anticipated adaptation of The Girl on the Train.
