Best Emily Blunt Movies and Performances, Ranked

Emily Blunt has gracefully conquered roles as varied as British royalty, a formidable fashionista, and a time-traveling warrior. The Oscar-nominated actress is celebrated as one of the most talented figures of her generation.

To celebrate her birthday, Variety ranks her 12 best film performances of her career so far.

Blunt’s filmography is impressive, and almost inconceivable it took so long to be honored with an Academy Award nomination. Her remarkable body of work has earned her six Golden Globe noms, two BAFTA nods, and four Screen Actors Guild nominations. She notably clinched a SAG Award for her compelling portrayal of a pregnant mother navigating a post-apocalyptic world in “A Quiet Place,” directed by her husband, John Krasinski. This victory made her as only the second actor to win a SAG Award without receiving an Oscar nomination, following Idris Elba for “Beasts of No Nation” in 2015.

Beyond her professional accolades, Blunt is cherished by fans and peers for her quick wit and vibrant personality. Her authenticity and relatable nature have won over audiences worldwide, forging a deep connection with moviegoers of every age.

Honorable mentions: “The Girl on the Train” (2016); “A Quiet Place Part II” (2020); and “The Muppets” (2011).
