Of course Emily Blunt had to thank her biggest fan after taking home a SAG Award on Sunday night. During her acceptance speech for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, the actress pointedly called out husband John Krasinski for his never-ending support after the couple had collaborated together in his directorial feature A Quiet Place.

“Oh my goodness me,” Blunt gushed as she took to the stage. “Guys… that truly has completely blown my slicked hair back. Thank you so, so, so much. I am so moved and completely lost for words and unprepared. I am going to share this completely with my husband, John Krasinski, because the entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart. You are a stunning filmmaker. I am so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you.”

She added, “Thank you for giving me the part. You would have been in major trouble if you hadn’t.”

Krasinski, meanwhile, got emotional from his seat as Blunt delivered her speech. Later, the actress was asked about her husband’s sweet and raw reaction to her speech.

“He probably was as shocked as I was!” Blunt said to reporters (via Entertainment Weekly). “It was very unexpected. An incredible category and certainly not something I planned for. I think he was just overjoyed. His face was a bit of a blur to me, but I’ll find out how he felt when I see him.”

Krasinski and Blunt made awards season headlines earlier this month at the Golden Globes after he was caught enthusiastically cheering on his wife from his seat while the Mary Poppins actress presented an award. The stars share two young daughters named Hazel and Violet.
