  1. This one is tricky because I haven't seen a ton of movies with either actress. I'm picking Rose Byrne largely because of her role on Damages, though I think she's been decent in films like 28 Weeks Later and Sunshine. I've only seen Emily Blunt in a few movies (though I have seen Gnomeo and Juliet, strangely) so I'm not sure I can assess her accurately.

  2. I find Byrne hilarious so would go with her. Blunt hasn't really been in the kinds of films I watch. But I did develop a little crush after watching 'Salmon Fishing...'

  3. I like both, but I have seen more of Blunt's work and generally I think she's the better actress. Glad to see her getting more and more roles, she's lovely.

  4. Emily Blunt. Fairly easy pick for me in this match-up. Her turns in The Devil Wears Prada and The Adjustment Bureau are above anything I've seen from Byrne so far.

  5. Both haven't really a chance to stretch their acting abilities so it's tough to tell. I will go with Rose because she was all kind of over-the-top in Get Him to the Greek ;)

    1. Bingo. I liked Byrne already before Greek (she sold me with Sunshine and 28 Weeks), but her going all-out nutso totally won me over.

      Blunt...still needs to win me over. I've seen quite a few things with her, and she's definitely talented, but I guess I'm just looking for more personality out of her. Still wanna see 5-Year Engagement, so perhaps that will change my mind a bit.

    2. I still have not seen Get Him to the Greek, I really should get on that one. I was not a huge fan of 28 Weeks Later, but I agree she was great in Sunshine.

  6. I'm going to be blunt and get straight to the point: Emily Blunt

  7. This is tough because I really like both actresses and I really want to go out with both of them. Shit. I'm confused.

    I'm probably going to say Rose Byrne since I've seen her in some better films like I Capture the Castle and Marie Antoinette though I really loved Emily Blunt in My Summer of Love. Both women are also hilarious. Notably Byrne in Get Him to the Greek except for the fact that she was sleeping with Lars from Metallica. Ew!!!

  8. I so want to pick Rose Byrne. but against Blunt, no way. Sorry Rose, Emily Blunt it is !!

  9. I like Emily Blunt more, but Rose wins. She had a massive year last year doing fairly good to very good work in 3 fairly good to good films. Her work on Damages reached its peak last year, too, and I feel like other than her stellar work in The Devil's Wears Prada and Gideon's Daughter Emily hasn't quit been as eclectic.

  10. I'm going with Rose Byrne. Blunt had a bigger star making turn in The Devil Wears Prada, but nothing else she's done has been as big. Byrne, on the other hand, has been more consistent. She's great in Wicker Park.

    Blunt is by far the more talented actress. Not even close.
