She began her film career with a bang in the lesbian love story ''Film/MySummerOfLove'' and was quickly rocketed to international attention when she appeared in ''Film/TheDevilWearsPrada''. Both were enough to get her nominated for the BAFTA's Orange Rising Star Award (which was claimed by Creator/EvaGreen in the end). Much was expected of her, though her filmography over the next few years was a rollercoaster of critical hits (''Film/SunshineCleaning'', ''Film/TheAdjustmentBureau'', ''Film/TheYoungVictoria'' etc) and some major misfires (''Film/{{The Wolfman|2010}}'', ''Gulliver's Travels''). In that period of her career, she was best known as Creator/JohnKrasinski's wife.

Travels'').



She's been perpetually courted for the various franchises out there. She was going to be in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse as Black Widow -- but contractual obligations to ''Gulliver's Travels'' led to her dropping out and getting replaced with Scarlett Johansson, who was heavily campaigning for the role in the first place. Drew Goddard also reportedly wanted her for the ''Sinister Six'' movie that remains in DevelopmentHell. She finally got to be part of a franchise as of 2018 with ''Film/MaryPoppinsReturns'' -- playing none other than the iconic MagicalNanny. She's also got [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Brony cred]] due to her voicing Tempest Shadow in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017''.

* MsFanservice: Several examples, like ''Charlie Wilson's War'', where she's in a scene in her panties, and ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. Especially when she does that yoga pose in her introductory scene in the latter, particularly since the pose gets repeated several times. That said, she refused to do a topless scene in ''Film/{{Sicario}}''. Then again, said scene would have involved [[spoiler:Benicio del Toro's character forcing her to strip naked and then physically humiliating her by pointing out the scars he gave her]], so it would have been FanDisservice.

* DeadpanSnarker: Some of her roles and herself as well. Of the classic, dry British variety.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As said above, she was originally cast to play Black Widow in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse but was contractually obligated to do another movie (she signed a two-movie deal with Fox when she was cast in ''Literature/TheDevilWearsPrada'') that was filming at the same time as ''Film/IronMan2'' and had to drop out. She also turned down the role of Peggy Carter in the same franchise due to schedule issues.

Things took a major upswing in 2014 first with the SleeperHit ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'' in which Emily received rave reviews for her ActionGirl performance (in a surprisingly [[FeministFantasy feminist]] action flick too). By the end of the year, her Golden Globe nominated performance in ''Film/IntoTheWoods'' catapulted her to the A-list.

* ActionGirl: After some moments of this in ''Film/{{Looper}}'' and a few forays of ActionSurvivor in ''Film/TheAdjustmentBureau'', she goes full-on this in ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'', and in ''Film/{{Sicario}}'' she plays an FBI agent chasing a mysterious drug lord. Her character in the ''My Little Pony'' movie is more of a DarkActionGirl. Her character in ''Film/AQuietPlace'' doesn't fight as much, but she's no slouch in this department either.
