Blunt is paying her first-ever visit to the Middle Eastern locale to serve on the jury at the Dubai International Film Festival.
She tells ET that she was at the spa when she found out she was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for her role in Into the Woods. “My friends were there with me and I shouted it through the shower to them.”
She also mentioned that the photographers are much more polite in Dubai than she’s used to: “They are very respectful over here, I didn’t get yelled at.”
