Emily Blunt walked away from the 20th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards with a statue for Best Actress in an Action Movie for her work in "Edge of Tomorrow." During her acceptance speech, she thanked her co-star Tom Cruise and her husband John Krasinski. In one simple line, she championed what every woman knows to be true about action films: "It's the greatest thing not to be a damsel in distress in an action movie and I will forever be so grateful for the title of 'Full Metal Bitch.'"
