Emily Blunt in Dolce & Gabbana at the Writers Guild Awards: whimsical or goofy?

The Writer’s Guild Awards were on Sunday, and we didn’t cover it yesterday because we’re frankly tired of awards season. You can see the list of nominees and winners here. So many of my favorites won, which makes me happy. Best Original Screenplay was awarded to Eighth Grade, which I loved! Ooh and Sorry to Bother You won Best Adapted Screenplay, that’s such a crazy good movie and you can watch it on Hulu. Other winners included Castle Rock, also on Hulu, for Original Long Form, and The Americans for Best Drama. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski were maybe the big “gets” at the show and they were nominated for Original Screenplay, for A Quiet Place. Emily won a SAG for Best Supporting Actress for that role, but she hasn’t won anything for Mary Poppins Returns, nor was she nominated for an Oscar for MP, which makes me sad. (I am rooting for the song “The Place Where The Lost Things Go” to win best song at the Oscars, but I know that’s a long shot. That song is way better than “Shallow.”

Anyway Emily wore this goofy Dolce & Gabbana jacquard suit featuring a cartoonish giant bow tie with ruffled ends that trail down the front. Apparently Emily and her stylist didn’t get the memo that D&G is to be avoided, but more than that this just looks silly. Does the bow spin around and shoot water out of it? Also, her makeup is bad and she looks over it. I like to see her and John out together though, and I truly enjoyed A Quiet Place and am looking forward to the sequel. Check out John’s smart velvet blazer. Is it a little short for him or is that the look?


Here’s Eighth Grade’s Elsie Fisher. She’s only 15! She looks so cute in a little gingham print suit with a Mickey Mouse t-shirt underneath it. Great boots too.



Sarah Silverman was in a peacoat, high lace up boots and knee high socks. I have socks like this and could achieve this look with some boots. This never occurred to me and I like it!


We also have photos of Ellie Kemper, Julianna Margulies and Rachel Bloom!

    Ellie and John are the only ones who look good. My god, what has EB been thinking lately?

  2. Cidy says:

    Ellie Kemper looks best here in my opinion. Elsie also looks amazing, I love the contrast she looks refined yet young and fun.

  3. Snazzy says:

    Despite the fact that the suit is D&G, I quite like it, even with the strange giant bow.

  4. minx says:

    Emily looks over it. Or maybe she wasn’t feeling well.

  5. Steff says:

    Her face looks different again.

    Sidenote: Wow, just learned Karl Lagerfeld died.

  6. I'm With The Band says:

    Her face looks… off?

  7. tempest prognosticator says:

    Funny, none of them are dressed like they’re at the same event.

  8. The Voice says:

    Whoa! I didn’t recognize Emily Blunt! It looks like she did something to her lips which is too bad because I think she’s beautiful. Or rather, was beautiful.

  9. boredblond says:

    Glad “Eighth Grade” got some recognition.. the academy should be slapped for excluding Elsie Fisher..certainly the most genuine performance.

  10. Case says:

    Did Emily mess with her face? Ugh.

  11. French girl says:

    (Here) Emily Blunt looks like Madonna after her 3rd lift face and too many botox/fillers. She doesn’t look like herself . Unflattering makeup

  12. SM says:

    I actually lol’ed when I saw that. She looks like she walked into the carpet out of cartoon. Like she was supposed to be some character in Who Framed Rabbit Roger but her ended up being dropped out from the movie.

  13. Emily says:

    Lately her eyes have looked dead and her lips trout-like. It’s distracting me from commenting on the clothes.

  14. Sparkly says:

    I’d like it without that bow. She does need better makeup, too.

    Sarah Silverman looks different to me.

  15. Margaritas For Breakfast says:

    *Gasp!* A Brit wearing a MESSY BUN! Alert the Tabloids!

  16. Chaine says:

    Elsie looks so cute! The suit is something that would look ugly on the rack, but it looks really snazzy on her and I can’t believe I’m saying this but the Mickey Mouse shirt is perfect with it.

  17. jammypants says:

    The fact that she got snubbed for MP while Emma Stone won for La La Land goes to show the Academy cares little for rewarding talent.

  18. Cupcake says:

    Whoa what’s up with EB’s face tweaking?! Find a new doc!

  19. Tiffany says:

    If you would have said that was Khloe K in the header pic, I would have believed you.

    I LOVED A Quiet Place. It should’ve earned more recognition from the Oscars. I don’t do horror movies, (this isn’t quite horror but I’m a scaredy cat and wouldn’t watch without my boo) but this had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Just to have a movie with so little dialogue, the sound effects, sound mixing, and music really earned some praise.

  21. tuille says:

    I really like Em’s jacket but not with the bow. The ruffled lapel jacket alone is fab.

  22. serena says:

    Honestly Mary Poppins Return was a boring mess, imo. The best part of the movie was Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cameos, but other than that it was just a repetive carbon copy of the original.

  23. Coneorcup says:

    They all have to stay so skinny that it shows in their face (like Courtney Cox) and they eventually succumb to some work. Emily is a very attractive woman. I like this couple. Julianne Marguilis gives me the creeps BIG TIME especially after that Archie incident.

  24. Daurrie says:

    I think Silverman would look ravishing in a (modern) toga; I certainly dress-design-a in something more ravishing than a “peacoat”!… you’re not conservative, Sarah! YOU WOULD NEED HELP TO ACT CONSERVATIVE.

    It was Can You Ever Forgive Me? (not Sorry To Bother You) that won Best Adapted Screenplay at the WGAs. So thrilled for that win along with Eighth Grade since they were 2 of my faves last year.
