On Wednesday evening in Tokyo (time zone differences will explain everything), Emily attended the Tokyo premiere of Mary Poppins Returns at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel. Complete with a presentation, costumes from the movie and pop-up sets of Cherry Tree Lane, it looks as if Emily had a great time – and of course, looked very beautiful in the process.
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!
VARIETY – Variety will honor actress Emily Blunt at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Friday, Jan. 4 as part of their annual brunch with the festival at the Parker Palm Springs. The brunch is presented by AT&T.
The “Mary Poppins Returns” star will receive the annual Creative Impact in Acting Award. Previous recipients of this award have included Daniel Kaluuya, Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, and Steve Carell. The award celebrates Blunt’s year in film between her supporting role in “A Quiet Place” and her starring role in Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns.” Emily has received SAG nominations for both roles and a Golden Globe nomination for “Mary Poppins Returns.”
“No actor has had a bigger year than Emily Blunt in 2018,” said Variety co-editor-in-chief, Claudia Eller. “From playing a mother fighting to save her family’s life in ‘A Quiet Place’ to tackling one of cinema’s iconic characters in the musical ‘Mary Poppins Returns,’ Emily Blunt has proven to be a versatile and commanding actress who can cross genres easily and with great success.”
Ryan Coogler will also be honored with the creative impact in directing award, with the cast members from “Black Panther” confirmed to present. Cadillac is a premiere sponsor of the event.
The Palm Springs International Film Festival will be held Jan. 3-14, 2019.
