Emily
Blunt

Actor

Few actors can lead both an indie horror film and a classic musical sequel to box-office triumph in the same year, but the British Blunt made that her key 2018 accomplishment by projecting both tough-minded focus and an inviting charm onscreen. She ably turned “A Quiet Place” — directed by husband John Krasinski — into a $341M sleeper success and followed it up by proving she’s got pipes, singing masterfully in “Mary Poppins Returns,” which took in $349M. “Poppins” earned her a SAG nomination and her sixth Golden Globes nod. Up for 2020 is a “Quiet” sequel and a trip to the land of Disney in “Jungle Cruise,” and awards success could lie ahead when she toplines the inspirational memoir adaptation “Not Fade Away.”
