    The moment in question? Her birth scene in A Quiet Place.

    ‘I will say, emotionally it was the most daunting to do the birth sequence because I knew it was going to be a beast,’ she explained in the SAG Awards press room about her win. ‘We would shoot it for 5 days straight, you know, giving birth, from the moment the water breaks till the moment I’m in the bathtub, which still makes my mother cry, she doesn’t like watching that one.’

    She continued: ‘So, I think that was the most daunting to shoot. I didn’t necessarily find them as frightening as the audience did….more of an emotional task, you know?’

    Congratulations to Emily again!
