Blunt starred opposite Bill Nighy and Miranda Richardson in the British television drama Gideon’s Daughter, based on an original screenplay written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff, where she played the troubled only child of New Labour spin doctor Gideon Warner, played by Nighy. The film premiered at the Hamptons International Film Festival in 2005, and debuted on British television in February 2006. Praised for its “sterling performances,” Blunt won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for her performance.
She then featured opposite Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the comedy The Devil Wears Prada, set in the fashion world in New York City. Blunt played Emily, the senior assistant of Runway magazine editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly, played by Streep. The film was a commercial and critical success, grossing $326,551,094 Though Streep garnered most of the attention for her role, Blunt’s performance was equally praised, with Clifford Pugh of The Houston Chronicle asserting that “[Blunt] has many of the movie’s best lines and steals nearly every scene she’s in.” Blunt was nominated the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture for her performance. She attended the 79th Academy Awards where she co-presented the award for best costume design with Hathaway, with both acting as their characters from the film. Blunt then co-starred with Susan Sarandon in the independent drama Irresistible.
Blunt’s profile continued to rise, and in 2007, she appeared in four films: the horror film Wind Chill, the romantic drama The Jane Austen Book Club, the comedy Dan in Real Life, and the historical comedy-drama Charlie Wilson’s War, and in the latter, Blunt played one of the mistresses of Tom Hanks‘ Charlie Wilson. In 2008, Blunt appeared in two films, Sunshine Cleaning in the role of Norah Lorkowski, an underachiever who starts a crime-scene clean-up business with her sister Rose, played by Amy Adams. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008, where it received positive reviews, particularly for Adams’ and Blunt’s performances. Peter Travers of Rolling Stones magazine commented “This funny and touching movie depends on two can-do actresses to scrub past the biohazard of noxious clichés that threaten to intrude. Adams and Blunt get the job done.” A.O. Scott of The New York Times agreed, stating “Amy Adams and Emily Blunt […] attack their roles with vivacity and dedication…” She then starred in The Great Buck Howard as Valerie Brennan, which premiered at the same festival.
In 2009, Blunt portrayed Queen Victoria in the independent drama The Young Victoria, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and written by Julian Fellowes, which focused primarily on her early life and reign, as well as her marriage to Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Blunt’s performance earned critical accolades, and she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama and the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actress, among others. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly concluded that “Director Jean-Marc Vallée’s images have a creamy stateliness, but this is no gilded princess fantasy — it’s the story of a budding ruler who learns to control her surroundings, and Blunt makes that journey at once authentic and relevant.”
She also starred in the Toby Spanton-directed short film Curiosity, and was director Jon Favreau‘s first choice to play Black Widow in Iron Man 2; due to scheduling conflicts with her role in the comedy Gulliver’s Travels, she was forced her to cede the role to Scarlett Johansson. She also voiced Angelina’s mother, Matilda Mouseling, in the television series, Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps. In 2010, Blunt co-starred with Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins in the horror film The Wolfman, a re-adaptation of the classic 1941 film of the same name. She then starred in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau alongside Matt Damon, as a dancer “being mysteriously kept apart” from Damon’s character, a politician. The film earned generally positive reviews, with critics praising Blunt’s and Damon’s chemistry. Blunt was offered the role of Agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, but like the offer for Iron Man 2, she turned it down.
In 2011, Blunt was named the ambassador of the new Yves Saint Laurent fragrance, Opium. Blunt then starred in the British comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, directed by Lasse Hallström and co-starring Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas. She played a financial adviser who recruits a fisheries expert, played by McGregor, to help realise a sheikh’s vision of bringing the sport of fly fishing to the Yemen desert, resulting in a spiritual journey for both in the process. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, receiving positive reviews, as did Blunt’s and McGregor’s performances. Kenneth Turan of The Los Angeles Times noted “Blunt and McGregor are two of the most gifted and attractive actors working today, able to play off each other with great style…” Blunt was nominated the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her performance. Also that year, she made a cameo appearance in Disney’s The Muppets, as Miss Piggy‘s receptionist, and starred in the independent comedy-dramaYour Sister’s Sister, alongside Rosemarie DeWitt and Mark Duplass
